IV.       DISCUSSION - Items for discussion are typically when the board will engage on a topic and no vote is planned.           

(a)        The Park at Beaty Street Task Force Status Report II, Task Force Officers Denise Beall and Dave Cable

Summary: Since the August 7 update to the Davidson Board of Commissioners, the Park at Beaty Street Task Force held its first Public Input Session on Thursday, September 27 with approximately 70 attendees. The Task Force then held a retreat on October 7. A decision was made for a third survey for public input for the corner of Beaty/Main St.

As recommended by the Task Force, Eagle Engineering has been hired to conduct a boundary and topological survey of the property and issued an RFP for civil engineering services related to the dam.  The scope of work includes a technical, environmental, and financial analysis to determine the costs and benefits of improving versus removing the dam.  The Task Force selected Kimley-Horn for this project.

(b)        251 South Street Proposed Operating Costs & Planning Process Options, Assistant Town Manager Dawn Blobaum

Summary: The board of commissioners will discuss the costs to maintain the 251 South Street property from the time of purchase to the end of the 2019 fiscal year. 

After completion of our due diligence work, we are acquiring the property at 251 South Street in mid-December.  Besides the need for public facilities, there is a myriad of options for use of the site.  We have four proposals for a planning process to determine the strategy for the property: Master plan heavy, Master plan lite, Public facilities only heavy, or Public facilities only lite. 

(c)        Consider Approval of Ordinance 2018-07 Request Street Closure for Christmas in Davidson and Ordinance 2018-08 Request Street Closure for the North Mecklenburg Christmas Parade, Town Manager Jamie Justice

Summary:  Each year, the Town of Davidson Board of Commissioners requests that the North Carolina Department of Transportation undertake the formal steps necessary to request street closures in order to conduct Christmas in Davidson (O2018-07) and the North Mecklenburg Christmas Parade (O2018-08) in accordance with § 20-169 (3).

(d)        Citizen Advisory Boards 2019 Nominations, Town Manager Jamie Justice

Summary: Members of the Nominating Committee met on October 15, 2018 and the following recommendations were made for the 2019 Citizen Advisory Boards.  The recommendations will be presented to the Davidson Board of Commissioners on Tuesday, November 6 and action on Tuesday, November 27. 

(e)        Citizen Survey, Communications Director Cristina Shaul

Summary: About every two years, the Town of Davidson participates in the National Citizen Survey (NCS) to capture a data-based picture of our residents’ needs and perspectives. This benchmarking, community survey provides a comprehensive and accurate picture of community quality and resident perspectives about local government services, policies, and management. The NCS is conducted in hundreds of communities in nearly every U.S. state. We plan to participate in January, 2019. This survey also allows us to ask Davidson-specific custom questions; we need the Davidson Board of Commissioners to weigh in on what questions and answers will help with their decision-making for the future.

(f)  2019 Legislative Agenda - 1st Draft, Town Manager Jamie Justice

Summary: The North Carolina General Assembly convenes January 9th for the biennial (long) session.  The Town of Davidson has historically created a state legislative agenda to further the town’s goals and advocate for what’s in the best interest of Davidson. The long session provides for local bills to be introduced with the help of our legislators that could potentially address issues specific to Davidson. As a part of the state legislative agenda, the town also has historically endorsed the North Carolina League of Municipalities (NCLM) municipal advocacy goals that address statewide issues that help all towns in North Carolina.

At the November 6th board meeting, the board will be asked to provide feedback/changes on draft 2019 legislative agenda.

(g)        Proposed 2019 Board Meeting Schedule, Town Manager Jamie Justice

Summary: In December every year the board of commissioners is asked to adopt the upcoming calendar year board meeting schedule.  For 2019, the three meetings per month schedule could continue with the exception of five months (January, July, August, November, December) where there are holiday/schedule conflicts reducing the frequency to two meetings for those months, with the exception being one meeting for November.

Based on the direction from the board, the schedule for 2019 will be drafted and will be on the December 11th meeting agenda for board approval.

(h)        Upcoming Agenda Items, Town Manager Jamie Justice
