The Carrboro Board of Aldermen tabled a public hearing Tuesday for a contentious development that would bring a charter school and commercial and residential space to the town.
The Claremont South development would include the Howard & Lillian Lee Scholars Charter School, which was approved to open for the 2013-14 school year by the State Board of Education last September.
The development would also include a 15,200-square-foot commercial building and 84 apartments.
Claremont South has faced opposition from some Carrboro residents who are concerned about its environmental impact and the proposed charter school.
Alderman Randee Haven-O’Donnell said the developer’s plans have changed three times in three years, and it is now applying for a modification to the conditional use permit.
Friends of Bolin Creek, an environmental conservation organization, is protesting the development’s impact on Bolin Creek. In February, the organization urged its supporters to write letters to the Board of Aldermen.
Tom Barta, a Carrboro resident, wrote to the Board of Aldermen after receiving the Friends of Bolin Creek notification.
“Every added development on the creek damages the creek,” he said.
Barta said he was concerned with plans to use an open field for construction.
