The design process began shortly <br /> afterward and proceeded until the development of schematic design documents and initial cost <br /> estimates. At that point, The Arts Center of Carrboro withdrew from the project. <br /> Subsequently, both Orange County and the Town of Carrboro have discussed changes to the <br /> occupant mix and associated space allocation within the facility. The Town has proposed <br /> adding various functions totaling approximately 6,950 square feet in Town allocated space while <br /> the County staff have discussed adding a permanent location for the Skills Development Center. <br /> Adding the Skills Development Center would increase the County's space by approximately <br /> 12,600 square feet and increase the County's overall space allocation from 41% to 56%. This <br /> abstract would authorize the final scope of County space by outlining two options. One of these <br /> options would be memorialized in the First Amendment to the Development Agreement. <br />
