TOWN OF DAVIDSON
BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS
216 South Main Street
September 4, 2018
I. CALL TO ORDER
(a) Proclamation - National Suicide Prevention Week
III. CHANGES TO AGENDA
(a) Downtown Park/Davidson Farmer's Market Site Improvement Options and NC Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services Grant, Economic Development Manager Kim Fleming
Summary: This project was one of the top priorities for the board of commissioners as the area is used by many citizens of Davidson. It is also an area that attracts visitors and adds to the vibrancy of the downtown. It helps our thriving business/restaurant community by functioning as overflow outdoor seating and is also home to our farmers’ market. The Davidson Board of Commissioners worked to secure a $100,000 grant from the Department of Agriculture that can be used for this project.
(b) North-South Connector Study Update, Senior Planner Travis Johnson and Lake Norman Regional Transportation Commission Executive Director Bill Thunberg
Summary: The Urban Land Institute (ULI), in a 2010 Lake Norman Region transportation and land use study identified North-South connectivity East of NC 115 as a critical need. In response, local jurisdictions, including Huntersville, Davidson, and Mooresville/Iredell County added segments of a potential North-South Parkway to the Metropolitan Planning Organization's Thoroughfare Plan. Huntersville and Davidson included preferred cross-sections in adopted planning documents but there was no comprehensive effort undertaken to link these efforts together in a cohesive manner. The North – South Parkway Sub Area Study is funded from the Charlotte Regional Transportation Planning Organization’s Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP).
(c) Pay Study Update, Town Manager Jamie Justice and Consultant Susan Manning
Summary: A pay study was included in the FY 2018-19 budget that examines the market for the town’s positions to determine if adjustments are needed in order to stay competitive. Our last pay study was conducted in 2015. Susan Manning will provide an overview of the pay study scope of work and an update. Next steps include a presentation to the board of commissioners by Susan at the September 11th board meeting with the findings, recommendations, and implementation options for the board to consider.
(d) North Harbor Conditional Planning Area Work Session, Planning Director Jason Burdette
Summary: This is an update to the Davidson Board of Commissioners as required by Section 14.5.5. of the Davidson Planning Ordinance. The proposed conditional planning area shall be presented at a board of commissioners work session for informational purposes, review of plans, conditions, documents and reports, and allow 3 for board comment. However, the proposed plan appears to be consistent with (a) the Davidson Comprehensive Plan, as adopted by the Board of Commissioners and amended from time to time; and, (b) all other officially adopted plans and the Planning Ordinance.
(e) Draft Noise Ordinance Revisions, Police Chief Penny Dunn
Summary: The recommended changes for the Town of Davidson noise ordinance are for the ease of understanding for residents and officers, establishment of reasonable and measurable levels of sound, and clearly defining the measuring location for officers responding to a complaint.
(f) Process for Naming of Town Parks, Town Manager Jamie Justice
Summary: The town currently has no formal process for naming of parks. With two potential parks coming online in near future, staff and the Livability Board recommend developing a process to engage community.
(g) Meeting Schedule: Coffee Chats, Town Manager Jamie Justice
Summary: At the May 1, 2018 informal board meeting, the mayor and commissioners discussed options for improving the meeting schedule. In addition, the location for the coffee chats is no longer an option, necessitating a change regarding the coffee chats.
(h) Board of Adjustments, Town Attorney Cindy Reid
Summary: The Board of Adjustment hears cases concerning ordinance interpretations, requests, or appeals for variances. Historically, all members of the Planning Board also serve as members of the Board of Adjustment, either presently serving or serving as alternates. The five presently serving members are elected by the Planning Board and include an ETJ representative.
(i) Upcoming Agenda Items, Town Manager Jamie Justice
Summary: Overview of topics at upcoming meetings.
(j) Miscellaneous/Open Discussion
