Orange County, Carrboro, and Chapel Hill have been collaboratively planning for the future of the jointly owned 104-acre Greene Tract and permanent preservation of the Orange County owned 60-acre Headwaters Preserve. In 2020, the three respective boards voted to utilize the remaining lands as follows: 

  • Approximately 66 acres housing/mixed use 
  • Approximately 22 acres to be preserved
  • Approximately 16 acres for public school site and public recreational site

The Greene Tract is a place of immense historical, cultural and natural resources, and all three governmental entities are committed to a thoughtful and inclusive site planning process that respects the people and resources of the area, while reflecting the shared goal of increasing affordable housing for our community.
