Purpose of Assessment
The following Impact Assessment report details specific areas of concern for
communities when considering a new development: Public Service, Traffic, Water
and Wastewater Service, Stormwater, and Climate Change impact to the
development, the surrounding area, and the Town of Carrboro. The purpose of this
assessment is to evaluate possible impacts that Roberson Square development will
generate, identify their influence on the Town of Carrboro, and provide alternatives to
mitigate adverse effects of this development.
Assessment Procedures
The report evaluates pre-development conditions and post-development conditions
under each impact area. Based on the pre- and post-development comparison, the
report measure whether the project has negative impact on the Town mainly
according to Town standards. In light of the evaluation results, the report identifies
responsibility and possible mitigation measures.
