Commissioners will have a “pre-meeting” starting at 4pm, during which they will discuss economic development incentives.
The Town will consider a resolution asking the NC Department of Transportation to reduce the speed limit on Davidson-Concord Road from 55 and 45 mph to 35 mph.
According to the text of the resolution, there have been 72 traffic accidents along the portion of Davidson-Concord Road from the East Rocky River Road roundabout to June Washam Road between January 2008 and July 2014. The resolution adds that the speed limits already in place are regularly exceeded by drivers.
Commissioners will consider a special variance in noise ordinance for 2 Harbour Place that would allow workers to begin work on the office complex between 4 and 5am. Project supervisor David Hester will be contacting residents of the nearby buildings regarding the earlier work hours.
The Town will use funds from the budget to pay the balance of the Parks and Recreation Master Plan.
- Roosevelt Wilson Park Lease: The town will renew its lease from Duke Energy of property at Roosevelt Wilson Park Bridge.
- Annexation Agreement: The town of Davidson will also vote on an annexation agreement with Charlotte that designates a dividing line between the city and the town that places limits on the property that each can annex.
- Davidson Walks and Rolls: The North Carolina Chapter of the American Planning Association (NCAPA) has selected the Davidson Walks and Rolls: Active Transportation Master Plan as a Small Community – Comprehensive Planning award recipient. This award is part of the North Carolina Marvin Collins Planning Award Program that recognizes plans of unusually high merit.
