(b) North Corridor Transit Study Results, Jason Lawrence, Senior Transportation Planner for CATS (Charlotte Area Transit System)
Summary:  The LYNX system update is a regional study to reevaluate transit options in the region and update the system-wide plan with actionable projects. In the north corridor, the study looked at four alternatives: 1) Red Line Commuter Rail; 2) I-77 BRT (Bus Rapid Transit); 3) US 21 Light Rail; and 4) US 21 BRT.  CATS will share the findings of the study.

(c) Davidson Commons East 4D Pre-Development Consultation Master Plan Amendment, Senior Planner Trey Akers
Summary: The applicant proposes to re-designate approximately 3.14 acres located on Davidson Gateway Dr. from Conditional Planning Area to Lakeshore Planning Area. The applicant envisions a development of approximately 38 single-family homes, including homes constructed on-site to meet the Davidson Planning Ordinance requirements for Section 5 Affordable Housing. The applicant is meeting with the board of commissioners to understand the viability of the Map Amendment (i.e. rezoning) request prior to initiating the official Map Amendment process. The applicant does not anticipate asking for any exceptions to the Davidson Planning Ordinance as part of the Map Amendment process.

(d) River Run Phase VI Pre-Development Consultation Pre-Conditional, Planning Director Jason Burdette
Summary: The applicant proposes to re-designate approximately 74.8 acres located in east of Shearer Rd and south of E. Rocky River Rd. from a combination of Neighborhood Edge/Conditional Planning Areas to entirely Conditional Planning Area. The applicant is working with Epcom Communities to develop a 130-unit active adult (age-targeted) community. As part of the conditional request, the applicant is asking for a number of exceptions to the Davidson Planning Ordinance.

(e) Villages at South Main Pre-Development Consultation Master Plan Amendment, Planning Director Jason Burdette
Summary: Davidson Village Investments, LLC requests to reduce the proposed unit count in block 1 by an additional two units, resulting in 29 total residential units. The proposed reduction of residential units falls outside the administrative approval thresholds based upon original approval numbers: 39 residential units. If approved, total unit count for Villages of South Main would be reduced from 31 proposed units (2012 amendment) to 29 units. This is on the agenda for discussion purposes only.

(f) Downtown Community Gathering Space Update, Economic Development Manager Kim Fleming
Summary: Consultant Stantec has provided a revised plan for the downtown space based on feedback from the board of commissioners and downtown stakeholders (Davidson Farmers Market & downtown businesses).
(g) Board of Commissioners Quarterly Meeting - March 5, Town Manager Jamie Justice
Summary: In November 2018, the board of commissioners made changes to the 2019 meeting schedule to include quarterly meetings for 2019 starting in March.  It was determined to revisit the topic in early 2019.  The first quarterly meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, March 5th.
Staff is suggesting a Quarterly Q&A format. This would entail alternating a.m. and p.m. sessions each quarter and having the meetings in the town hall board room for logistical purposes. An elected official would act as the moderator and project updates and/or relevant topics can be shared with attendees at the beginning of the meeting. The Q&A period would be handled with note cards provided for attendees to write down questions or comments. The moderator and staff would then determine how to best address the questions.  This will manage the Q&A period and allow for board/staff to respond or follow-up if questions cannot be addressed during the meeting.

(i)Consider Approval of Budget Amendment for Purchase of Mock Road home for Affordable Housing, Finance Director Pieter Swart
Summary: The mayor and commissioners have been discussing the preservation of affordable housing in Davidson through the use of the payment in lieu funds the town has collected. Recently, a house located on two lots at 153/155 Mock Road, has come available. The Davidson Housing Coalition has agreed to purchase this home so that it can be preserved and maintained as an affordable housing unit in town. The town and Davidson Housing Coalition have a history of partnering together on affordable housing units for the Davidson Housing Coalition to maintain and manage as an extension of the town’s affordable housing program.  Acquiring this property ensures that the home can remain affordable.

The request is for the board is to amend the budget to appropriate up to $200,000 for the acquisition of these properties and any related costs. The funds would come from the town’s payment in lieu program. An agreement would be consummated between the town and Davidson Housing Coalition regarding this transaction.

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