Oct 23rd BOC Meeting Recap

On Tuesday October 23, 2018, the Waxhaw Board of Commissioners conducted both a work session and the regularly scheduled business meeting.

The work session provided a detailed update on two key Waxhaw projects:

  • Our Parks and Recreation Director provided an update on their Master Planning work. Included in the update was a summary of the recent citizen survey which showed strong support for making improvements to the parks and recreation system. Please join our staff for our final Parks “Community Conversation” on November 6th. Details will be available on the Town website.
  • The Town Zoning Administrator provided an update on the rewrite of our Unified Development Ordinance.

The regular meeting began with the recognition of Police Chief Michael Eiss. In recognition for his military service to our country, he was awarded a “Quilt of Valor.” We thank Chief Eiss for his over 30 years of public service to our country and our Union County communities.

The Town Board received updates on the following operational areas:

  • The business development work of the Waxhaw Entrepreneurs.
  • A monthly update was provided from the regional transportation board (CRTPO). Of note was the approval of the inclusion of the north east quadrant of the Waxhaw Parkway for consideration as a project to NCDOT. This represents the first time that the CRTPO has submitted this project for consideration.
  • Town Manager Ferguson provided an update on the tremendous work of our events team.

The Board of Commissioners also accomplished the following during the regular meeting:

  • Approved an amendment to our Unified Development Plan to provide clarity to our thoroughfare protection district.
  • Adopted a revised code of ethics for the Town of Waxhaw.

October marks the beginning of what many call the, “season of events” in Waxhaw. Starting with Autumn Treasures and running through year-end, our award winning downtown and surrounding area will be bustling with nearly a dozen town planned activities.

While we are wrapping up a calendar year, we've only just completed the first quarter of the town's fiscal year. We continue to make great strides with our ongoing commitment to full transparency. Our Board meetings are structured to provide more information on Town projects. We have doubled the public comment opportunities, implemented community wide digital tools, launched a government citizen’s academy (while continuing our successful citizen police academy), expanded our public engagement, and more. We communicate digitally via the Town of Waxhaw website, the Town of Waxhaw social media pages and in printed form through Tri-W news. We also gladly entertain a direct interaction on any question or issue. We encourage you to contact us through, or email us directly. All contact information can also be found here:
