In listing the roll of important events this coming week, I accidentally left out one that promises to be quite interesting.
Cousins Properties Inc., which is leading the redevelopment of University Square for Chapel Hill Foundation Real Estate Holdings Inc., will host a public meeting Wednesday, Aug. 18, to discuss the long-term vision for the site and the proposed initial phase of the project. Representatives of Elkus Manfredi Architects of Boston will provide an in-depth presentation of the development plans, shaped in part by a previous public meeting on Oct. 15, 2009. The presentation will be followed by a question-and-answer session.
The meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m. in Suite 133-G of University Square, next to Kenâ€™s Quickie Mart.
