Mayor's Recap: January 22nd BOC Work Session and Meeting

On Tuesday January 22, 2019, the Waxhaw Board of Commissioners conducted both a work session and the regularly scheduled business meeting.

The work session included discussion on two important projects: 

  • In October 2018, the Town began work to determine the highest and best use of several municipally-owned properties in the historic downtown district. The Town of Waxhaw engaged with the Urban Land Institute (ULI) in a study that looked at the potential land uses and economic vitality of Downtown with an emphasis on our nine parcels of municipal property. Five major recommendations were made to the Town for consideration, For the complete report please go to https://tinyurl.com/yc75wpe2.
  • As a Town, Waxhaw continues to focus on transparency in everything we do. One of the areas that staff has been working on – how do we share the status of the over 60 transportation projects that the Town is currently managing? During the work session our staff demonstrated a new online tool that will allow every Town stakeholder to view and review our transportation work and get an update on its status. Look for an announcement on availability of the tool in the near future. 

During the regular meeting, the Board of Commissioners: 

  • Conducted the required public hearing and then subsequently approved the rezoning of two parcels of land in Downtown. The rezoning aligned these with our Town’s Downtown and Comprehensive Plans. 
  • Received an update on the regional transportation board (CRTPO) monthly meeting.  At that monthly meeting Waxhaw learned: 
    • Due to funding issues, NCDOT has delayed construction on Highway 16 from FY 23 to FY24. Eighteen other projects in the CRTPO region were impacted in a similar way
    • The northeast quadrant of the Waxhaw Parkway did not receive funding in the latest NCDOT transportation improvement plan. These projects go through an objective scoring and prioritization process. Over 25 projects were considered across Waxhaw’s NCDOT Division, The 11 highest scoring projects were funded in our NCDOT division. The Waxhaw Parkway was the 12th highest scoring project.  

Thank you to those that attended in person and to those that view via our Town YouTube Channel. If you have any additional questions about our recent meetings, or about any town related questions or issues, please contact communications@waxhaw.com.
