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

(a) Citizen Survey 2019 Results
Economic Development Manager Kim Fleming
Summary: The Town of Davidson contracted with the National Research Center to administer the 2019 National Citizen Survey to town residents. The Town has been surveying residents in this manner since 2007. The summary results will be presented while all of the supporting reports and documentation can be found on the Town’s website.

(b) Options for Public Facilities Phase II for Police & Fire (existing town hall)
Special Projects Manager Dawn Blobaum
Summary: Last May, Brent Green and Michael Supino from Creech and Associates presented to the board a re-design of the existing town hall for a 20-year growth scenario for the police and fire departments.

The renovation of the first floor for the police department satisfies their needs for 20 years.  The renovation of the lower level and addition of approximately 4,200 square feet to the building for the fire department presents operational issues. 

The board will discuss options to consider for Public Facilities Phase II for the police and fire departments. 

(c) Non-Profit Grant Allocations Process Discussion
Town Manager Jamie Justice and Parks & Recreation Director Kathryn Spatz
Summary: The Board of Commissioners has historically appropriated $50,000 to be distributed among qualified, registered, town-based non-profits that apply for funding for activities the town does not provide and that serve town residents. The board and staff will discuss options for the process for 2019.

(d) Consider Approval of Critical Home Repairs and Preservation of Naturally Affordable Housing
Affordable Housing Manager and Town Attorney Cindy Reid
Summary: At the December 11, 2018 meeting, the board of commissioners approved use of payment in lieu (PIL) funds for repair and rehabilitation to homes owned and occupied by lower income households. 

The Town is providing funding for the repairs from PIL funds, and Habitat, through its Critical Repair Program, is responsible for the repairs.  The Board is being asked to approve the contract between the Town and Habitat.  The contract specifies each parties’ responsibilities and provides an indemnification for the Town.

(e) Consider Approval of Draft Resolution 2019-16 Requesting North Carolina Legislation to support Senate Bill 297
Town Manager Jamie Justice
Summary:  Senate Bill 297, an act to direct the North Carolina Policy Collaboratory at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to assemble a research advisory panel to study and develop recommendations on strategies for implementation of a research program to determine whether any clusters of cancer incidents exists within the state. Senate Bill 297 could provide an opportunity for further study of the multiple cases of Ocular Melanoma in the Lake Norman area, as well as any other potential cancer clusters throughout the state. 

(f) Miscellaneous/Open Discussion
Summary: This is an opportunity for Commissioners to present or discuss any topics not previously listed on the agenda.
