4The Daily Tar Heel Monday, November 9, 1987 TV T f ew caies serve uro By LAUREN MARTIN Staff Writer Little by little, the cultural character of Franklin Street is creeping westward, according to spokesmen for two cafes soon to be opening on the west end of town. The Columbia Street Bakery and Coffeehouse, located on North Columbia Street behind Logos bookstore, should be open later this mAnlli eot4 T"r V fli1tt r mamkai of the cafe's board of directors. Another cafe, the Skylight Exchange Bookstore and Cafe, is scheduled to open for business by the end of this month, said co-owner Dennis Gavin. It will take over the "old Rhythm Alley site, next to Tijuana Fats on Rosemary Street. Both establishments will add to the " flavor of the west end, each with its own approach. The Columbia Street Bakery and Coffeehouse is a non-profit enterprise designed to be responsive to the arts in Chapel Hill, Gurlitz said. "The space will be available for a young poet who wants to test an evolving poem or if a group wants to try out some jazz here; it's free," he said. Avoiding the taffffk Proposed ordinance may create guidelines for development projects I By LINDSAY HAYES J Staff Writer The Chapel Hill planning depart ment has proposed a new ordinance that would allow town officials to deny development projects that could create serious traffic problems. The guidelines would tie approval of large-scale commercial, office and residential complexes to traffic impact, but they are only a skeleton of the final product at this stage, said Chapel Hill transportation planner David Bonk. "Anything a developer does to make it easier to get to the development will help reduce traffic impact," said Chapel Hill planning director Roger Waldon. If approved, the ordinance would require developers to follow guide-; lines according to the size of the ; development, its location, existing PROMOTIONS.

"Say you just spent two hours at a town council meeting," he said. "You can come here to sit around and talk about what youVe heard." Local artists not represented by studios can display their art on the walls of the cafe. Play readings or performances by musical soloists are other ideas Gurlitz said the board has in mind. The Columbia Street Bakery and Coffeehouse will be serving food prepared by the Ninth Street Bakery of Durham. Gurlitz said he wants to attract a lot of middle-aged people as well as graduate and undergraduate students. "Maybe you could call it a teen center for adults," he said. Gavin said the Skylight Exchange Bookstore and Cafe will cater to a "post-hippie non-yuppie" crowd. "It's where hippies with haircuts can come to meet their friends," he said.

"The town staff will determine what improvements are necessary to meet the requirements of the Ordinance," Waldon said. The town would conduct a yearly review to determine whether the developers are complying with the ordinance, Bonk said. The ordinance could require the developer to make some improvements up front, he said, such as changing a streetlight or a road. Sidewalks and bike lanes, if they are appropriate, will be built to improve access to the sites, Bonk said. Owners of the development or business might also be required to purchase Chapel Hill Transit passes or offer discount prices to their employees, Waldon said.

We're looking to please anyone from high school kids to parents of high school kids," Gavin added. The Skylight will be open for breakfast and lunch but will not have a full dinner menu to start. Cold sandwiches, ice cream and various desserts will be the main bill of fare, with possibly a soup of the day being added in the future. No alcohol will be served. As its name implies, the Skylight will serve up more than just food. Some 7,000 used books and 6,000 used albums will also be available. The Skylight also will spotlight local talent. Gavin said he wants to have live jazz, blues, rock and classical entertainment. "Rhythm Alley built its reputation here on live music, and the Cat's Cradle was here before that," he said. "We want to keep that alive." Gavin owned the Fair Exchange Bookstore in Carrboro for nine years but was forced out of his space there, he said. When he found the old Rhythm Alley space, he and John Howell decided to use the extra room as a cafe. The owners do not see a great make a payment to improve transit programs where the development is located, Bonk said. Considerations such as the size of the development and the number of its employees or customers would determine the amount of payment, he said. The owners or managers could decide individually whether they want to schedule work hours around peak traffic periods to alleviate congestion, he said. Local roads are overloaded in the morning and afternoon, Waldon said. The town might also charge parking fees to discourage people from driving alone, Waldon said.

"Hardback is new books; I'm used books," Gavin said. "They are further uptown, and they have a different style. "Skylight will be more like 'take a book to your table, see if you like it' kind of thing," he said. Gurlitz does not think there will be a problem with two new cafes coming to town. "I look at it as a positive," he said. "People will know that when you come to the west end of town you have a multitude of choices." Grant Kornberg, co-owner and general manager of the Hardback Cafe, said the competition will be beneficial. "There's an old theory in restaurants that business is good for business," he said. "I think it's great that the west end is going through this development because for a great while it was a no man's land. "Now we're going to get a lot more people," he said. "Ultimately it's going to be good for everyone." to see more and more of," he said. Bonk said the town should impose the financial disincentive of parking fees to discourage people from single-person car occupancy. The planning board will outline more detailed guidelines before submitting the ordinance to the town council for a vote, he said. If the town council approves the ordinance, it would then decide whether additional staff should be hired to implement the ordinance, Waldon said.

"We're really kind of up against the wall in terms of how we're going to finance it," Gardner said. The University will take out a loan to finance the deck initially, but officials are looking now for sources to repay that loan. In addition to permit revenue, traffic ticket income and parking charges for special events at the Smith Center, UNC officials are soliciting contributions from sources with a vested interest in using the parking deck. Possible funding sources include the athletic department, the Educational Foundation (Ram's Club) and N.C. Memorial Hospital. Students interviewed over the weekend agreed that the parking deck is needed and that both faculty and students need more spaces.

Janet Stepp, a junior international studies major, said she thought at least two levels of the deck should be for students. Senior physical education major Chris Jackson expressed a different concern. "I believe there's a need for a parking deck, but I wonder if it should be so close to the dorm," he said, noting that the traffic may disturb the graduate students in Craige Residence Hall. Kristen Powell, a sophomore history major, expressed concern about the parking problems of faculty and staff as well as students. "It's just as bad for them as for students." Senior RTVMP major William Yarbrough emphasized the inconvenience of lots far from campus, such as those off Airport Road. "What's the point of having a space if you can't even get to your car?"
