(a) Park at Beaty Update - recommendation for naming of park and conservation easement
Parks & Recreation Director Kathryn Spatz and Park at Beaty Task Force Member Dave Cable
(1) Recommendation for naming of Park at Beaty
In April, the Park at Beaty Task Force Leadership Committee recommended the following list of four park names for consideration by the public via Open Town Hall:
- Beaty Park: The property is well-known with the Beaty name and some folks call it by this name already. It signifies geographic location.
- Heron Park: Herons visit this park on a regular basis, particularly when the pond (the park’s primary water feature) is full.
- Perennial Park: Refers to the perennial plants, perennial streams and everlasting nature of the park.
- Preservation Park: Refers to the park being preserved in perpetuity.
The overwhelming choice, receiving 78.5% of the votes, on Open Town Hall was Beaty Park. Write-in ideas were permitted and several citizens expressed a desire for the park to be named Clontz Park, in honor of the family who sold the town land to the town.
The Task Force Leadership Committee and the Livability Board recommend to the board of commissioners that the park officially be named Beaty Park and be dedicated to the Clontz Family. We recommend the board of commissioners consider approval of the name proposed by the Park at Beaty Task Force Leadership Committee and Livability Board at the July 23 meeting.
(2) Park at Beaty Conservation Easement
At the March 26, 2019 meeting, the board of commissioners voted unanimously to adopt the recommendations of the Park at Beaty Task Force, including permanently protecting all 6 parcels (20+acres) that make up the Beaty property with a conservation easement. Park at Beaty Task Force member Dave Cable will present information on the proposed conservation easement. If the board of commissioners agrees with the terms of the easement language, the next step is to approve the conservation easement as presented and approve the budget amendment at the July 23 meeting.
(b) Tree Ordinance Text Amendments
Planning Director Jason Burdette, Senior Planner Trey Akers, and Planning Board Ordinance Committee members Dave Cable, Shawn Copeland, and Ellen Donaldson.
Summary: Staff and Planning Board Ordinance Committee members will present the draft text amendments to Davidson Planning Ordinance re: tree canopy. Discussion will include work completed, violations and fees,and next steps.
(c) Targeted Conditional Zoning Growth Management Tool
Planning Director Jason Burdette
Summary: The Board of Commissioners directed staff to explore strategies to better control the pace of development, specifically concurrency and targeted conditional zoning.After working with a consultant who specializes in growth management strategies and is familiar with North Carolina statutes, targeted conditional zoning is the preferred tactic to pursue. This is for discussion purposes only.
(d) Consider Approval of next steps in process for General Obligation Bonds for Public Facilities
Town Manager Jamie Justice and Finance Director Pieter Swart
Summary: The board of commissioners will consider approval of next steps in process for General Obligation (GO) Bonds for Public Facilities. The board will consider approval of Resolution 2019-31 to set the date of the Public Hearing for Tuesday, July 23, 2019 at 6:00 p.m.
(e) Consider Approval of Charlotte Regional Transportation Planning Organization (CRTPO) Grant Applications
Town Manager Jamie Justice
Summary: The town board has discussed several potential projects for roadways, greenways, and parks. The Charlotte Regional Transportation Planning Organization (CRTPO) provides grants to local governments for transportation-related projects. Their next grant cycle for discretionary grant funding begins in August and closes in October. The grants are typically an 80% grant with a 20% local match. This source of funding is one of the primary grant options for Davidson for transportation projects.
To make applications, staff would work with an engineer to refine the cost estimates for the applications as well as work with CRTPO staff to best position these projects for grant funding. Staff has reviewed the potential projects and determined the ones that are the most likely to be eligible for CRTPO grant funding:
- Highway 115 and Beaty Street intersection improvements.
- Potts Sloan Beaty phase 2 - Beaty Street multiuse path from Griffith Street to Highway 115.
- Grey Road multiuse path from Wolfe Street to Abersham Park.
- River Run to Summers Walk Greenway - engineering study phase.
The board is asked to authorize staff to proceed with making applications for these projects. The 20% local match could come from the 2017 general obligation (GO) bonds. (f) Miscellaneous/Open Discussion
This is an opportunity for Commissioners to present or discuss any topics not previously listed on the agenda. VII. SUMMARIZE MEETING ACTION ITEMS
