From correspondent Tammy Grubb:
The Board of Aldermen could vote tonight on whether to rezone a 2.69-acre parcel on Hillsborough Road for the county’s new southwest branch library.
Although the vote originally was scheduled for April 19, it was moved up a week to accommodate the county’s need to have a decision before its contract to buy the property expires. If the county misses the deadline, it has to pay $10,000 to retain its interest in the 210 Hillsborough Road site for another 90 days.
County officials notified the aldermen about the misunderstanding a few days after a March 22 public hearing on the 20,000-square-foot, one-story project. Previously, the county told Carrboro officials they needed a decision before April 21. The aldermen voted last Tuesday night to confirm the date change.
The Board of Aldermen meet at 7:30 p.m. in the Carrboro Town Hall boardroom.
