 Carolina North Technical Workshops

As part of the University's commitment to developing Carolina North as a model for sustainability, we have begun a planning process to address concepts related to Infrastructure, High-Performance Buildings, and Sustainable Design at Carolina North. One of our objectives in this planning effort is to gather input from a variety of stakeholders and experts in early discussions to help us shape effective plans for sustainability at Carolina North.

Between November and January, UNC-Chapel Hill is holding workshops focused on defining sustainability principles at Carolina North. The workshops are held at UNC and led by consultants engaged by the University because of their expertise with these topics.

As meeting materials are available from these workshops, they are being provided here for your information. If you have specific questions about the workshops, please email Tiffany Clarke (

These workshops will help us gather and assess technical information fundamental to the planning of Carolina North, and will allow us to develop facts and figures needed for a meaningful exchange in subsequent public forums. This work is part of the discovery phase of our planning process where we will work with our consultants to explore the possibilities for Carolina North. The public forums that are planned to follow the technical workshops will be open to the community and will offer opportunities to build on the workshops and to gather additional information to inform our goals and vision for Carolina North.

We will conduct two kinds of technical workshops:

  1. Infrastructure workshops will include our staff, consultants, and selected experts working in specialized teams.
  2. An ecological assessment workshop, held the evening of November 6, included our staff, consultants, and invited local participants with special knowledge or expertise.

December 13 Public Review of the Ecological Assessment for Carolina North

Chancellor Moeser has said that Carolina North will be a model of sustainability. As one of the first steps to that goal, Biohabitats, Inc. has produced an ecological assessment to inform our planning. We are eager to get your input to help us shape effective plans for sustainable development at Carolina North.

We will hold two sessions (featuring the same information). Both sessions will be on Wednesday, December 13th in room 2603 of the School of Government.

Information from all workshops:



As subsequent public forums are scheduled, they will be posted on this page.
