The Chapel Hill Planning Board issued a final recommendation on UNC's Development Plan on Tuesday night, stating that the town should only support the plan if 33 changes are made to it.
The board also recommended that the Chapel Hill Town Council further discuss whether the town should push for three additional changes to the Development Plan.
The board's recommendation will go before the council for in early October. A public hearing is set for Sept. 19 to give residents a chance to air concerns.
The town created a new zoning category for UNC this summer on the condition that the University submit a Development Plan to the town for approval.
The most debated issue at Tuesday night's meeting was a four-lane access road along the southern border of campus. The road appears in UNC's Master Plan, a 50-year blueprint for campus growth, but is absent in its Development Plan, an eight-year plan.
The issue was a point of contention because the Development Plan calls for a "perimeter transition area" that board members fear will later become the four-lane road.
