Item No.2. Ordinances. Engineering Director Loyd advised by memorandum that he had received a request to amend the Traffic and Parking Schedules of the Monroe City Traffic Code. The Transportation Committee and Staff recommended approval of the proposed changes to the Traffic Code: A. An Ordinance to Amend Traffic Schedules. Engineering Director Loyd advised that this request is for an amendment to the "Through Street Schedule" to designate Fitzgerald Street as the through street over Ellen Street and was initiated by Southern Assisted Living, Inc. which is located at the end of Fitzgerald Street in Monroe Square. Staff issued letters to all businesses with properties touching Fitzgerald Street or Ellen Street advising that the above would be considered at the Transportation Committee Meeting on December 14, 2000 prior to presentation to Council. If approved, stop bars would be installed on Ellen Street to further identify the change in stop sign locations. The request to amend the "Through Truck Schedule" to include West Windsor Street was initiated by Ms. Fran Hedrick, a resident who lives along the roadway. West Windsor Street is a residential class street that runs parallel to Franklin Street. Ms. Hedrick indicated that trucks often miss their turn onto West Franklin Street from Charlotte A venue and turn onto West Windsor Street, which is the next right. The "Through Truck Schedule" currently includes the section of Windsor Street to the east of Charlotte A venue to Five Points. e Staff is in agreement with both requests. 136 e e e e e Council Member Kilgore moved to adopt Ordinance 0,..2001-07: AN ORDINANCE TO AMEND TITLE VII, CHAPTER 75 OF THE CITY OF MONROE CODE OF ORDINANCES 0-2001-07 BE IT ORDAINED by the City of Monroe Council that Title VII: Traffic Code, Chapter 75 - Traffic Schedules of the City of Monroe Code of Ordinances is amended as follows: Schedule II. Through Streets Add: THROUGH STREETS Through Street Stop Streets Fitzgerald Street Ellen Street Delete: THROUGH STREETS Through Street Stop Streets Ellen Street Fitzgerald Street Schedule VII. Through Trucks No through trucks are permitted at the following location: STREET NAME FROM TO Windsor Street Charlotte Avenue West Street Adopted this ~ day of January, 2001. Council Member Smith seconded the motion, which passed unanimously with the following votes: AYES: Council Members Hargett, Jordan, Keziah, Kilgore, Smith, Mayor Pro Tern Bazemore, and Mayor Davis None NAYS: B. An Ordinance to Amend Parking Schedules - Handicapped Parking. Engineering Director Loyd advised by memorandum that this Ordinance is to amend the Traffic Schedules to add one new handicapped parking space on the south side of Franklin Street between 137 e e e e Beasley Street and Church Street and one additional space in the public parking lot at Franklin Street and Church Street. Lifespan, a facility for the handicapped, submitted a request for two parking spaces to serve as a loading/unloading zone in front of their business at 232 East Franklin Street. Engineering Staff evaluated the request along with Chris Plate', Economic Development Director, and presented their findings to the Downtown Monroe, Inc. Board of Directors on November 28, 2000. Staff recommended installing one additional handicapped space on the south side of Franklin Street between Beasley Street and Church Street and to provide one additional handicapped space in the public parking lot at the corner of Franklin Street and Church Street. The, addition of the proposed handicapped space is shown in the construction drawings for Streetscape Phase IV. In accordance with ADA requirements, the plans provide for the existing curb line to be recessed into the existing sidewalk by 5 feet to provide a 13-foot wide handicapped space. A regular parallel parking space is 8 feet in width. The additional 5 feet enables a person utilizing a wheelchair to safely exit/enter his vehicle without encroaching into the adjacent travel lane. Two regular parking spaces will be required to create the one additional handicapped space. Staff recommended against the unloading/loading zones since there would be an opportunity for encroachment into the through lane of Franklin Street. Mr. Loyd advised that Dawn Patterson, who initiated the request from Lifespan, was present at the November 28, 2000 meeting and indicated the recommendation as presented by staff was agreeable. The amendment to the Parking Schedules as recommended by staff was approved by the Downtown Monroe, Inc. Board of Directors. On December 14, 2000, the Transportation Committee also concurred with the recommendation and referred to Council for final approval. Mr. Loyd further advised that while preparing the Ordinance amendment, a number of corrections were identified in the present schedule. Staff corrected these errors and created a new section to separate handicapped spaces located in public lots from on-street parking. It is recommended by Staff that the past schedule be deleted in its entirety and that the updated and corrected schedule be added. Council Member Kilgore moved to adopt Ordinance 0-2001-06: AN ORDINANCE TO AMEND TITLE VII, CHAPTER 76 OF THE CITY OF MONROE CODE OF ORDINANCES 0-2001-06 BE IT ORDAINED by the City of Monroe Council that Title VII: Traffic Code, Chapter 76: Parking Schedules - of the City of Monroe Code of Ordinances is amended as follows: e Schedule V.

Engineering Director Loyd advised by memorandum a status report and work accomplishments to date on the Five Points Plantings Improvements and to request a Budget Amendment to appropriate funds for the availability fee and tap fee to irrigate the largest landscaping island. The Five Points Plantings Improvements Project was directed by Council Members Phil Hargett and Bobby Kilgore. This project, when completed, will enhance one of the major "gateways" into the Downtown Business District. Mr. Loyd stated that the Engineering Department surveyed the Five Points Area in lieu of having to contract with an outside surveyor. Once the plan set was completed, the Parks and Recreation Department returned the proposed planting schedule for each island and nose cone planned to receive landscaping improvements. The Parks and Recreation Department requested that the Engineering Department review the possibility of providing irrigation taps for the proposed landscapings. The Water Resources Department advised that the availability fee for a tap would be $1,600.00 each and the tap fee would be $670.00 each. The Engineering Department met with Mr. Ritchie Hearne, the NCDOT District Engineer, for initial comments regarding the plan. Mr. Hearne stated that the NCDOT may require the traffic delineator island to be replaced more uniformly to eliminate the "bump-out" characteristic of the existing island and that if the island is landscaped, he did not feel any plant 145 e e e e e over waist high would be practical for sight distances. Mr. Hearne stated that he would visit the site and contact the Engineering Department with other comments. On December 4, 2000, the Engineering Department submitted the plan with an Encroachment Agreement to the NCDOT with a request for a landscaping permit. Encroachment Agreements are typically received back from the NCDOT within 4 to 8 weeks. Mr. Hardy Clyatt has been retained and is currently in the process of obtaining landscaping easements from the private property owners involved. Staff presented the proposed improvement and update on the status of this item at the Transportation Committee Meeting held on December 14, 2000. The Committee concurred with the proposed plan as presented by Staff and directed Staff to continue toward finalizing the project. Staff recommended that only the largest landscape island, which creates a triangle dimensioning 100' x 100' x 35', be irrigated. Mr. Loyd requested that Council appropriate $2,270.00 for the availability fee and tap fee from the General Fund to the Water/Sewer Fund. Mr. Loyd stated that all other costs will be completed within the current operating budgets of the Engineering Department and the Parks and Recreation Department. Construction will commence upon Encroachment Plan approval and as easements are obtained from private property owners. Council Member Kilgore moved to appropriate $2,270.00 for the availability fee and tap fee from the General Fund to the Water/Sewer Fund.

Project # 01-100-00003 - Request to Amend Conditional Use Permit - Relocation of Generator Pad for Telecommunications Antenna - Corner of Saco Street and Coakley Street. Mayor Davis opened this quasi-judicial public hearing and swore in the following individuals who planned to give testimony: Bill Amann and Carol Rhea. Planning Director Rhea advised that Cellco Partnership (Verizon Wireless) has petitioned for an Amendment to a Conditional Use Permit for relocation of a proposed 5' x 10' generator pad from a previous location. The Mangum Telecommunications Tower Site is adjacent to land zoned both G-I and B-1. To the north across Coakley Street lies Monroe Chainsaw and Lawnmower Company and a single-family resident zoned B-1. Across Old Morgan Mill Road to the west, there is an industrial site used for gasoline and diesel fuel storage, and the storage of old gas pumps. To the east across Saco Street lies a metal warehouse operated by SPC Marketing, which is also zoned G-I. The G-I zone continues to the south where there are several single-family residences adjacent to the site. The site does not lie within a protected watershed nor does it lie in a flúodway zone. The site lies in a transition area between Urban Residential and Heavy Industrial designated areas, and lies at the fringe of the Winchester Strategic Neighborhood. 150 e e e Ms. Rhea reported that the Petitioner requests to amend the conditional use permit approved by the City Council on September 5, 2000 in order to relocate the generator pad from its approved location. The petitioner is also requesting to amend their conditional use permit due to the presence of bad soils in the approved location. The approval of the previous request was in conjunction with a zoning text change that allowed ancillary structures to be added to nonconforming telecommunication tower sites in order to allow additional co-location opportunities. The proposed relocation of the generator and concrete pad is 10 feet from the existing fence, 14.86 feet from the existing Sprint equipment cabinets, and approximately 75 feet from the front property line off Old Morgan Mill Road. The Petitioner has added the screening requirements from the previously approved conditional use permit to the revised site plan. If approved by Council, the amendment should conform to the following conditions: The Planning Board recommends approval and Staff requests that should Council approve this item, that two standard conditions be applied: 1) The development of the tract shall proceed in conformity to all plans and design features submitted by the applicant as part of the conditional use permit application and shall be kept on file by the City's Planning Department except that the City Zoning Administrator may approve minor changes to such plans as required by field conditions as defined in Section 156. 185(D)(2); or 2) and that screening shall be installed pursuant to Sections 156.056 and 156.079(D)(7). Mr. Bill Amann with Chase Real Estate Services, on behalf of Verizon Wireless, spoke in favor of the request. Mr. Amann advised that the pad needed to be moved since the soil at the present location site is too soft and there is a concrete slab located nine feet underground. He further confirmed that a Geo Tech had been done on the new site and it is safe and secure. Mayor Davis asked the following questions of Mr. Amann in keeping with the required finding of facts: Mayor Davis: e Mr. Amann: Mayor Davis: Mr. Amann: Mayor Davis: Mr. Amann: Mayor Davis: e Mr. Amann: Is it your opinion that the use not materially endanger the public health or safety if located where proposed and developed according to plan? It is. Is it your opinion that the use meets all required conditions and specifications? It is. Is it your opinion that the use not substantially injure the value of adjoining or abutting property or that the use is a public necessity? It is. Is it your opinion that the location and character of the use, if developed according to the plan as submitted and approved, will be in harmony with the area in which it is to be located and will be in general conformity with Monroe Land Development Plan? It is. 151 e e e e e Mayor Davis: Is it your opinion that the relationship to and impacts upon adjoining and nearby properties and the adequacy of proposed measures to minimize adverse impacts have been addressed in the plan? Mr. Amann: Yes, it is. Mayor Davis: Is it your opinion that the proposed use will be compatible with the general characteristics of the area with respect to the location of the structure and the location, design, and screening of the site? Mr. Amann: Yes, absolutely. Mayor Davis: Is it your opinion that the use not interfere with the FAA Part 77 surfaces surrounding the Monroe Municipal Airport, or affect the radio and navigation signals of the operating ground and airborne equipment in the vicinity of the airport? Mr. Amann: It is. Mayor Davis: Is it your opinion that the location of an additional telecommunications antenna as proposed, will prevent the need for another tower in the search area? Yes, it is. Mr. Amann: Mayor Davis: Mr. Amann: Do you understand additional conditions staff has provided? Yes. There being no other speakers, either for or against the proposal, Mayor Davis closed this public hearing. B. Proposed Ordinance to Amend Title XI, Chapter 117 of the Code of Ordinances Pertaining to Regulation of Rental Property in the City of Monroe. Mayor Davis opened this duly advertised public hearing. Planning Director Rhea introduced Attorney Anthony Fox who introduced this item to Council. Mr. Fox advised that in 1999, City Council adopted an ordinance requiring a privilege license for all rental units within the City. He stated that this proposed amendment would change the requirement from a privilege license, currently issued by Customer Service, to a Rental Permit, which would be issued by the Department of Planning and Development. A Rental Permit shall be required for each rental unit within the City. One permit shall be issued for each complex with rental dwelling units and shall be deemed to cover all such dwelling units under single ownership. An annual permit fee shall be levied and collected on any rental authorized by the permit issued pursuant to the ordinance. Mr. Fox further stated that multifamily residential complexes less than five years old with more than 20 dwelling units, or rentals and with no pending violations would undergo an abbreviated inspection. That is, 20% of the total dwelling units would be inspected. The code enforcement officer would randomly select these units for inspection. Ms. Rhea reiterated that the complex must contain 20 or more units. Council Member Smith asked whether all rental property owners had been notified. Ms. Rhea advised that owners have been notified by standard notification for public hearing. Formal notification will be mailed out, pending Council approval. The intent was to make as few 152 e e e e e changes as possible. The owners who had registered with the City under the previous program would be considered registered for the purpose of this program. There is a new registration period that will extend through the end of April to allow those owners who have not yet registered their properties to come in and register prior to the City beginning type of enforcement action against them. They will get a piece of paper signed by the Code Enforcement Supervisor versus a piece of paper signed by the City Tax Collector. City Manager Spell stated that it is good when the City can draw attention to things the City is doing to try to ease the process. He further stated that one of these provisions is an attempt to try to reduce the number of units requiring an inspection for larger complexes where there haven't been problems and they have been maintained. There being no other speakers, either for or against the proposal, Mayor Davis closed this public hearing. c. Transportation Improvement Program Recommendations - Years 2002-2008. Mayor Davis opened this duly advertised public hearing. Planning Director Rhea advised that infrastructure is required to support the growth and development in Monroe. Congested streets and thoroughfares have become common in the City as traffic counts continue to soar. Ms. Rhea stated that although much of the traffic is generated locally, a significant portion of it can be attributed to the fact that Monroe lies at the crossroads of several important state maintained thoroughfares: U.S. 74, U.S. 601, NC 7S, NC 84, and NC 200. These thoroughfares serve as important truck routes funneling large amounts of traffic through the City daily. The construction of the 74 Bypass will relieve some of the east-west traffic congestion, but improvements still need to be made along other roadways to move traffic efficiently, safely, and effectively. Ms. Rhe~ advised that with a few minor changes, the following recommendations are the same as those recommended since 1996. Written comments were due to NCDOT by the end of 2000. Due to the City Council schedule, this item was not included as a public hearing item until the first City Council meeting of 2001; however, a public hearing is not required for this item. Staff felt that this would be a good idea. Any additional recommendations will be considered for inclusion in next year's update. Ms. Rhea stated that the recommendations for the 2002-2008 Transportation Improvement Program Update represent the outcome of careful planning and consideration and are, by all estimates, necessary for the planned orderly growth of the City and the transportation network which supports it. The list of priorities for Monroe are: Highw~ Improvements - (1) The Western Loop; (2) Secrest Avenue Extension; (3) Charles Street; (4) Charlotte Avenue; (Sa) Airport Road I Goldmine Road; (5h) Rocky River Road; (6) U.S. 601 North, and (7) Northern Loop. Aviation Improvement - Monroe Airport. Identified Future Needs - Allen Street Connector. 153 e e e e e Ms. Rhea stated that the Transportation Committee recommended Council adopt a resolution requesting that NCDOT make all efforts to include the proposed recommendations for the City of Monroe in the 2002-2008 Transportation Improvement Program. Ms. Rhea further stated that this is an annual process. Anyone wishing to make suggestions or comments should contact the Planning Department. There being no other speakers, either for or against the proposal, Mayor Davis closed this public hearing. Item No. 14. Action from Public Hearings A.

Dale Helms advised that on November 29, 2000 he received a complaint from a residence on John Moore Road about abandoned cars at 1823 John Moore Road. On December 1, 2000, Capt. Helms went by 1823 John Moore Road and noticed vehicles in the back and side yard. Further investigation revealed that there were a total of nine cars in ~y~. - Capt. Helms inspected all nine cars and tagged seven that were dismantled/wrecked, had flat tires, were missing wheels or other essential parts. The other two vehicles were race cars, one old one and one in the process of being built. e On December 5, 2000 Mr. and Mrs. Clark sent a letter of appeal to Ms. Jeanne Deese, City Clerk. Capt. Helms stated that Ms. Deese called and advised him of the appeal and not to tow the vehicles since Mr. and Mrs. Clark would be appealing this decision to City Council. Capt. Helms also stated that Ms. Deese asked him to talk to the Clarks about a fence that they were wanting to build to hide the cars from the roadway. e Capt. Helms spoke with Ms. Clark on December 12, 2000 and explained that in order for her to keep all the cars on her property, she would have to build a building big enough to put all cars in. He explained to Ms. Clark that a privacy fence did not meet the specifications with the City Ordinance. Capt. Helms stated that at that time Mrs. Clark asked for extra time to 161 e e e e e move the cars. Mrs. Clark advised she had moved two of them but needed more time to move the others. Capt. Helms advised her that since she had appealed it to the City Council, nothing would be done until after the meeting on January 16, 2001. Capt. Helms said that Mrs. Clark thanked him and said she would probably have them moved by then. Capt. Helms said that Mrs. Clark also advised him that she had already received her permit to put up the fence but understood that it would not work and that they would cancel their plans to install the fence. Capt. Helms advised that as of 2:30 this afternoon, the vehicles had been moved except one and it had been covered with an approved vehicle cover. Council Member Smith questioned whether the parked bU$ in the yard was still there. Capt. Helms advised that he did not tag the bus because it is not considered a vehicle. It falls under the category of a storage building. It does not have wheels and is not on a chassis. Capt. Helms advised that he will refer this to Planning and Zoning t~ see what can be done. City Manager Spell advised that between the Police Department, Planning Department and City Attorney, they will address how they need to move forward with this. Item No. 16.

Council Member Keziah seconded the motion, which passed unanimously with the following votes: 166 -- e e e AYES: Council Members Hargett, Jordan, Keziah, Kilgore, Smith, Mayor Pro Tern Bazemore, and Mayor Davis None NAYS: Item No. 17. Monroe Municipal Airport Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP) 2002- 2O.M.. Engineering Director Loyd advised that the Aviation element of the TIP is a three-year allocation of State Block Grant (Federal funds) Program and State Aid to Airports (State funds). The program is updated annually by the Division of Aviation based upon local airport input and projected State/Federal funds. Airport Sponsors are requested to confirm their intent with regard to projects already in the TIP and to submit new and revised requests for the three- year period. Monroe's TIP submittal for this year's formulation is essentially the same as the one for FY 2001-03 with the exception that the MALSR Approach Lighting Project and the Taxiway Relocation Project are no longer included. These projects are to be completed with the Federal funds secured by Representative Robin Hayes. Projects that are included in the 2002-04 submittal include the Multi-year Relocate/Extend Parallel Taxiway; Aircraft Apron programmed for FY 2002 and FY 2003. This continues reimbursement of funds already expended by the City under the past $4.3 million dollar Capital Improvement Program and provides for other possible Airport improvements in FY 2003. Mr. Loyd advised that the City has approximately $287,028 remaining to be recovered from the Capital Improvement Program. He stated that other projects proposed for the TIP submittal included reimbursement of the property previously acquired along the southwest side of, Runway 5 and the Dickerson Land Acquisition located along the east side of Runway 5. Projects associated with expanding the Airport toward Charlotte Avenue also are identified for funding consideration. Mr. Loyd advised that the Airport Consultant presented the TIP submittal to the Airport Commission at their meeting on January 8, 2001 and the Commission recommended approval of the program as presented. Mr. Loyd also asked that the Engineering Director be authorized to execute all necessary forms indicating the City Council's concurrence on the projects. The concurrence is not a commitment of funds but is an acknowledgement that the projects are consistent with local funds and objectives and that funding could be obtained within a reasonable time if the project grants became available. Council Member Keziah asked how many jets per day flew into the Airport. Mr. Loyd advised that he was not sure. Coµncil Member Keziah referred the question to Economic Director Chris Platé. Mr. Platé advised that two jets per day fly into the Airport. Council Member Smith asked Mr. Loyd how much of the $6,000,000 he felt we would get. Mr. Loyd advised that he feels we will receive $500,000. , Council Member Hargett made a motion to approve the TIP submittal as proposed. Council e Member Keziah seconded the motion, which passed unanimously with the following votes: 167 e e e e e AYES: Council Members Hargett, Jordan, Keziah, Kilgore, Smith, Mayor Pro Tern Bazemore, and Mayor Davis None NAYS: The Monroe Municipal Airport Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP) is hereby incorporated as a part of these Minutes as "Exhibit B. " Item No. 18. Resolution to Declare Surplus Property, Recognize a Negotiated Offer, Give a Notice of Sale and Advertise for an Upset Bid. Assistant City Manager Mark Donham advised that Mr. Larry McCain, Trustee for the Greater St. James Glorious Fire Baptized Holiness Church of God, Inc., has expressed an interest in purchasing land owned by the City of Monroe. The Church is located on the South side of the parking lot across the street from the Winchester Center. This land surrounds the Church on three sides. The land is left over from land the City purchased for improvements to Morgan Mill Road. The property consists of 0.95 acres. Recently appraised at $.20 per square foot, the land is valued at $8,294.00. The Church wishes to offer $8,294.00 for the land and has provided a $1,000.00 deposit. Mr. Donham advised that should the offer be acceptable to Mayor and the City Council, the land needs to be declared surplus and the City must advertise to receive upset bids in order to dispose of the property. Council Member Keziah asked whether or not the land had been appraised. Mr. Donham advised that the same had been appraised. City Attorney Milliken advised that this will need to be advertised in the paper for someone to have an upset bid. We will need three separate votes. Mayor Davis advised that the City will need to declare the land surplus, agree to accept their offer, and accept that the City needs to advertise for an upset bid. City Attorney Milliken advised that these will need to be voted on separately. Council Member Jordan advised that he was looking at the offer. He stated that he felt the offer does not spell out who is responsible for what. It needs an environmental study. It is close to the railroad tracks. There should be something in the contract that holds the City harmless. Council Member Jordan stated that while on this subject of declaring property surplus, there is other vacant property around there that the City owns and he was not sure what criteria considers this surplus property. In other words, if the other Church located around this property wanted to buy some property from us for a parking lot, what kind of criteria would they have to come up with so that the City could sell them property for the same kind of purpose. He asked does someone need to bring an offer to the City? Mr. Donham stated that regarding the specific use of the property, the City would use the zoning policy and ensure that it would be in compliance. This particular piece of property surrounds the Church. Council Member Jordan stated that he understood that but he was 168 e e e e looking at the bigger picture. He stated that his question was when you start opting for upset bids, there are people out there who view those kinds of things and they may become interested in some of that other vacant property. If that should happen, what kind of objective criteria can the City establish in determining how the City plans to go about declaring surplus property. Mr. Spell stated that the fIrst thing would be to poll all Department Directors and see if there is any potential City use, current or proposed, in the future that the City would have. Information would then be provided on what could be allowed, how it is zoned, etc. If someone wished to entertain an offer to the City and have the property appraised and move through that process, the City could continue based on that with the knowing that Council had to approve initiating the process. The bigger picture is initiating a process of identifying every piece of property in the City that the City itself owns and trying to see what use the property may have. The ultimate goal would be, if the City does not have a use for it, try to dispose of it and try to get it back on the tax rolls, making it available for use. This is an issue that is being initiated to be worked on at Staff level. Mayor Davis felt that there was no potential use for this property and that the City had researched the same. She stated that she does not want to dispose of any City property that can be used down the road. Council Member Jordan stated that this was his feeling as well. He further stated that he just wanted to be careful about how the City went about accommodating one entity when it may come back to' haunt the City. City Attorney Milliken stated that he felt it was too late to get indemnification. Council Member Jordan stated that if something was found there later, he would like to know who was responsible for cleanup after the City sold the property. If the purchaser wanted to build something there and needed to get title insurance and the bank required that there be some kind of environmental assessment done, who would be responsible. Mayor Davis asked that if the property was sold, would it not be the buyer's problem. Council Member Jordan responded that he was not sure. City Attorney Milliken advised that there was some review when that property was purchased. He thought there was some assessment of what had been conducted there and in particular what the railroad had done. Mayor Pro Tem Bazemore advised that there was a preliminary test. It was not a thorough test and it found that it was harmless. A. Declaration of Surplus Property. Council Member Keziah made a motion that this land be declared surplus property. Mayor Pro Tem Bazemore seconded this motion, which passed e unanimously with the following votes: 169 e . e e e AYES: Council Members Hargett, Jordan, Keziah, Kilgore, Smith, Mayor Pro Tem Bazemore, and Mayor Davis None NAYS: B. Resolution and Notice of Sale Negotiated Offer and Upset Bid. Council Member Hargett moved to adopt Resolution R-2001-06: CITY OF MONROE RESOLUTION AND NOTICE OF SALE NEGOTIATED OFFER AND UPSET BID R-2001-06 THAT, WHEREAS, the City of Monroe has negotiated for an offer to purchase certain surplus property at W alkup Avenue and Seaboard Street and being known as .95 acres consisting of parts of Deeds 337/093, 342/397, and 341/829; and, WHEREAS, the Greater St. James Glorious Fire Baptized Holiness Church of God, Inc. as shown on the attached map has tendered an offer to purchase said property in the amount of $8,294.00 and has posted 12.1 percent (%) of said offer with the City Clerk; and, WHEREAS, the City Council proposes to accept said offer pursuant to G.S. 160A-269. NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that said property is declared to be surplus and the City Clerk is ordered to publish said offer as required by law and report back to the Council when the time for filing an upset bid has expired.

Mayor Pro Tem Bazemore seconded the motion, which passed unanimously with the following votes: AYES: Council Members Hargett, Jordan, Keziah, Kilgore, Smith, Mayor Pro Tem Bazemore, and Mayor Davis None NAYS: Item No. 19. Other Business A. John Norris. Mr. Norris stated that he owns property on Curtis Street. He has been unable to get a satisfactory answer on some questions from Customer Service. Mr. Curtis has a warehouse on Curtis Street that he has had for eight years. He stated that his utility bill runs the same every month. He went back to this year and for the first nine months of 2000, his bill averaged $59.70 per month. He spoke with one lady at Customer Service and she advised him that the minimum rate that he paid included 100 cubic feet of water which was 748 gallons. He spoke with another lady in Customer Service and she told him that he got the base charge. Mr. Norris stated that in August his bill went from the normal $59 up to $80. He advised that he has six lights, one commode and one sink. He stated that the next month his bill was $113. He called back to Customer Service and the lady advised him that he used 170 e . e e e 27,000 gallons of water that month. She further advised that if he was not using that much water, it had to be bubbling up in the yard somewhere. He asked the City to come check the meter. The lady in Customer Service advised that they could not check the meter. She advised him to raise the meter up and if it was leaking that bad, he could see the meter move. Mr. Norris stated that he went to his meter and that he could not read it. He had to scrape the meter. He called back to City Hall and he spoke with a lady in Customer Service and had her research his bill. Mr. Norris stated that it had been 10 months since the meter had been read but that he has been getting charged every month for the minimum, and then all of a sudden, he ended up getting these two large bills and his water consumption had not changed, and no one could explain to him how they got an extra $75 out of him and his water consumption had not changed at all. Mr. Norris further stated that he has natural gas. He checked to find out prices and to ensure that he was able to get gas at his business. He asked them about cutting it off in the Spring and cutting it on in the Fall. They advised that they do not cut the gas off but that they charge a $5 minimum every month. Mr. Norris said he told them this was fine and to leave it on. He stated that three years down the road the price went up to $10 and now it is $15. He stated that it cost him $180 a year if he did not use gas and the only thing he uses it for is to keep soft drinks from freezing or if he needed to work on his truck. He just wanted to voice his opinion on this issue. Mr. Norris stated that one of the ladies in Customer Service advised him that she had been here three years and she assured him that she is right and the rest of them do not know what they are talking about. Mayor Davis advised that she did not have an answer for Mr. Norris now but that she would have someone get in contact with him in a few days. Mayor Davis advised that Customer Service is one of the City's top priorities this year and apologized that this incident came up. Mr. Norris advised that any correspondence should be sent to his home address which is 605 Heatherwood Drive, Monroe, NC, 28112. His business address is 1154 Curtis Street. His mobile number is (704) 292-0550. B. Larry McCain. Mr. McCain advised that he is the trustee from Greater St. James Glorious Fire Baptized Holiness Church of God, Inc. and just wanted to thank Council for the consideration they have given them. They have a 50-year history at that location. It is their intent to level that building and build a new sanctuary and from that sanctuary they wish to have community involvement, a daycare, early childhood development, adult literacy, etc. They plan to be a force in the Community and on behalf of the members, Deacons and trustees he thanked Council for their consideration. Mayor Davis asked if Mr. McCain understood the upset bid process and he advised that he did. C. Bradford Estates. Council Member Kilgore advised that a resident of Bradford Estates, located off Secrest Shortcut Road, contacted him regarding their desire to hook up to natural gas. This citizen was unable to be at Council so Council Member Kilgore passed on his 171 e e e request. It was Council Member Kilgore's understanding that natural gas is halfway into that development and that there are five to six additional residents wishing to hook up to natural gas. Council Member Kilgore requested a study on this to see what needs to be done to finish the line out on this street so additional residents can hook up to natural gas. Mayor Davis advised that if they cannot be hooked up to natural gas, Council needs to know the reason why so that Council can provide an answer either way. There being no further business, Mayor Pro Tern Bazemore moved to adjourn. Council Member Kilgore seconded the motion, which passed unanimously with the following votes: AYES: Council Members Hargett, Jordan, Keziah, Kilgore, Smith, Mayor Pro Tern Bazemore, and Mayor Davis None NAYS: The Regular City Council Meeting of January 16, 2001 adjourned at 7:20 p.m. . ¿frno Attest: ~Ýì1~~~ Jeanne M.

Board of Transportation Public Meeting in Concord, November 21, 2000 e e e e e INTRODUCTION Located in the strongest growth conidor of the Charlotte metropolitan region, Monroe is experiencing unprecedented growth and development. Accompanying this growth is a need for the infrastructure to support it. Congested streets and thoroughfares have become common in the city as traffic counts continue to soar. Although much of the traffic is generated locally, a significant portion of it can be attributed to the fact that Monroe lies at the crossroads of several important state maintained thoroughfares: u.s. 74, U.S. 601, NC 75, NC 84, and NC 200. These thoroughfares serve as important truck routes funneling large amounts of traffic through the city daily. The construction of the 74 bypass will relieve some of the east-west traffic congestion, but improvements still need to be made along other roadways to move traffic efficiently, safely, and effectively. The City of Monroe respectfully submits the following roadway and aviation improvement recommendations for the 2002-2008 Transportation Improvement Program Update. These recommendations represent the outcome of careful planning and consideration and are, by all estimates, necessary for the planned orderly growth of the city and the transportation network which supports it. The ,list of priorities for Monroe are: Hi2hwav ImDrovements 1. The Western Loop 2. Secrest A venue Extension 3. Charles Street 4. Charlotte Ave 5a. Airport RoadlGoldmine Road Sb. Rocky River Road 6. U.S. 601 North 7. Northern Loop Aviation ImDrovements 1. Monroe Airport Identified Future Needs 1. Allen Street Connector mGHW A Y IMPROVEMENT RECOMMENDATIONS Priority #1: The Western Loop (U-3412) Monroe needs the western loop as soon as possible and requests that this project remain on the TIP for 2002-2008. Currently all Traffic leaving southwestern Monroe must use Charlotte Avenue to access U.S. 74 or 601 North. Because of the absence of the western loop, downtown Monroe experiences high traffic levels including heavy truck traffic linking up with and traveling NC 75 and NC 200. The western loop would provide a direct, unimpeded route from U.S. 74 at the Monroe Mall, a favorite destination for local residents, to NC 75 and NC 200 southwest of the downtown. This would remove mòst of the truck traffic and many of the vehicles traveling through town from the downtown area. Traffic volume projections for the year 2020 (based on thoroughfare plan projections) show the western loop exceeding 28,000 vehicles per day even as traffic volume increases in the downtown over current traffic counts. Without the loop, traffic on critical downtown roadways could easily increase by 7,000 vehicles per day during this period rendering these roadways impassable during much of the day. In addition to hiring a full-time downtown revitalization coordinator, the City of Monroe has 1 City of Monroe 2002-2008 TIP Priorities e e e e e spent more than $500,000 in the past two years to improve the appearance and functionality of the downtown. Of corttinued concern is the large number of tractor-trailer trucks that clog downtown streets. Many of these trucks carry live poultry, poultry waste, and lumber products spreading feathers, waste, and wood debris along the streets. Tight turns on downtown streets also mean that these trucks cause traffic snarls, run up on curbs causing significant damage, and intimidate pedestrians at crosswalks. Unless the excessive truck traffic is removed trom the downtown, the city's efforts to revitalize the area will have limited success. By building the western loop, the city would, for the first time, be able to declare these streets off limits to through trucks and reroute them down U.S. 74 to the western loop where they can link up with NC 200, NC 84, and NC 75 west of the city. The second section of the Western Loop, trom Charlotte Avenue to Goldmine Road, has been constructed as a two-lane facility. This section was planned as a five-lane roadway and NCDOT purchased right-of-way accordingly. The City of Monroe strongly requests that the western loop, including this section, be built as a five-lane roadway. Priority #2: Secrest Avenue Extension (U-3619) The extension of Secrest Avenue to the U.S. 74 Monroe Bypass has been identified for some time as a long range goal to relieve traffic congestion within the Sutton Park area of Monroe. In addition, improvements are needed to the existing section of Secrest Avenue, between US 74 and Walkup Avenue, including widening. The City of Monroe requests that this project be added to the 2002-2008 TIP and that funding for an environmental impact statement be allocated as soon as possible. The Sutton Park area has approximately 29 industries employing nearly 6,000 people located within its immediate area. This results in roadways such as Walkup Avenue being choked with traffic at peak periods due to the lack of access routes. The only means to access U.S. 601 North, Secrest Shortcut and other residential areas of Union County, is to travel to U.S. 74 for disbursement. The proposed roadway, as shown by the present Thoroughfare Plan for Monroe, is recommended to extend across Richardson Creek, to a connection with the U.S. 74 Bypass, and then continue north of the bypass to an intersection with Olive Branch Road (SR 1906). With the impending construction of the U.S. 74 Monroe Bypass, the City of Monroe sees an opportunity to rectify traffic concerns within the Sutton Park area, as well as enhance the accessibility of the area for industrial growth. This is due to the planned extension of the Bypass onto the Charlotte Outer Belt. This will provide industries of the area with a "limited access" treeway to 1-77 and 1-85 to the west. Also, as an added benefit, new industrial land on the north side of Richardson Creek will become open for development. The Monroe Wastewater Treatment Plant, which is a vital part of any industrial base, is located immediately downstream and will facilitate line upgrades into the area. Without the extension of Secrest Avenue, most of the industrial traffic will use Morgan Mill Road as their primary link to the planned bypass. Traffic volume projections (based on the thoroughfare plan projections)for Morgan Mill Road in the year 2020 with Secrest Avenue extension in Dlace approach a five-lane roadway capacity. Routing the 24,000 vehicles per day expected to travel Secrest Avenue Extension to the bypass to Morgan Mill Road instead will nearly triple the projected volume of Walkup Avenue and almost double the volume of traffic on Morgan Mill Road. In addition, the availability of a Secrest A venue connection to the U.S. 74 Monroe Bypass will dramatically reduce the amount of travel time for the industrial traffic. 2 City of Monroe 2002-2008 TIP Priorities e e e e e Priority #3: Charles Street (U-2547) For several y~ars, Monroe has considered the improvement of Charles Street a priority project to provide adequate capacity for existing and future traffic and to improve safety. This project was an identified future need in the 1996 TIP and included as a project on the 1997 TIP. The city requests that this project remain on the 2002-2008 TIP. Projected traffic volumes in the year 2020 exceed 8,000 vehicles per day (based on the thoroughfare plan projections); a substantial amount for this street. The northern terminus of Charles Street is at the intersection of Morgan Mill Road and Franklin Street. Morgan Mill Road, ending directly across the intersection from Charles Street, is five lanes at the intersection and is projected to carry as many as 30,000 vehicles per day in the year 2020. Charles Street is currently a two lane local collector with varying pavement widths, alignment shifts, and carries a substantial amount of school traffic including school buses. Proposed improvements to this street include widening, straightening and resurfacing which should alleviate the safety and capacity concerns. Priority #4: Charlotte Avenue (U-213) Charlotte A venue between Airport Road and downtown Monroe is a major entryway into the city. Although the Department of Transportation shifted funding for this project to the western loop at the city's request in 1996 to reflect the loop's priority status for the city, the City of Monroe requests funding for this project in the TIP for 2002-2008. Current traffic counts along the target segment of Charlotte A venue are estimated at 18,000 vehicles per day. Even with the western loop in place which should draw a substantial amount of traffic off of this roadway, traffic volume is projected to reach 19,000 vehicles per day (based on thoroughfare plan projections) by the year 2020. Without improvements to Charlotte Avenue, especially between downtown and Concord Avenue, traffic will exceed design standards creating long delays and safety problems. Charlotte Avenue between Rocky River Road and Airport Road also serves as a major roadway connector to the Monroe Airport and corporate and industrial development along Airport Road. As development continues in this area, traffic will increase. This section of Charlotte Avenue should be widened to accommodate current and future traffic, much of which is and will be truck traffic. The intersections at Rocky River Road and Charlotte Avenue and Charlotte Avenue and Airport Road should be improved as well. Priority #5a: Airport Road and Goldmine Road (R-4050) The Development of land along Airport Road and Goldmine Road as a major corporate and industrial base for the City of Monroe and Union County, especially the highly successful Monroe Corporate Center, will continue to tax the ability of the current roadways to handle the type and volume of traffic this development demands. The City of Monroe strongly requests that NCDOT accelerate plans for widening Airport Road to four lanes between Charlotte Avenue and Goldmine Road and for similar improvement of Goldmine Road between Airport Road and Animal Shelter Road. The City also requests that NCDOT commit funds for repaving, lane widening (minimum of 28' of pavement), and shoulder improvements along Airport Road from Goldmine Road to NC 84 (Weddington Road). The improvement of Airport Road was mentioned and funds promised by Senator Aaron Plyler during his July 18, 1997 welcome to and formal announcement of CoItec Industries relocation to the Monroe Corporate Center. In addition, several recent accidents along this road involving trucks 3 City of Monroe 2002-2008 TIP Priorities e e e e e which serve the industries clearly points out the need for pavement widening and shoulder improvements. Priority #5b: Rocky River Road Rocky River Road from US 74 to Charlotte Avenue, including the intersections at either end of this segment, need to be improved to facilitate the movement of traffic between the Monroe Airport area and US 74. Recent signalization improvements at Rocky River Road and US 74 have improved traffic flow, however, current lane widths, shoulders, and turn lanes are inadequate for the increasing amount of heavy truck and passenger vehicle traffic along this segment of roadway. Priority #6: U.S. 601 North U.S. 601 will become a major corridor once the first phase of the U.S. 74 Monroe Bypass is completed. The City of Monroe requests that that portion of U.S. 601 between existing U.S. 74 and Sikes Mill Road be improved as a multi:"lane facility prior to the opening of the first phase of the bypass in order to handle the increased traffic. Priority #7: The Northern Loop The proposed northern loop is a vital link in the future transportation network serving Monroe. It is part of a loop facility that, when completed, will encircle the city. The northern loop will provide local traffic with opportunities to move between residential, commercial, and industrial areas in the high growth areas north of the downtown without having to move in and out of the central business district. Projected traffic volumes along the proposed roadway for the year 2020 (based on thoroughfare plan projections) vary between 5,300 and 14,000 vehicles per day. Although the proposed U.S. Highway 74 Monroe Bypass would appear to forestall the need for the northern loop, this loop will actually serve as a primary connector for local traffic traveling east and west. In fact, the existence of this loop may serve to keep local traffic from using the bypass ther~by helping to protect its design integrity. AVIATION IMPROVEMENT RECOMMENDATIONS Priority #1: Monroe Airport The Monroe Airport is a critical link in the transportation network of Monroe and Union County and should remain as a project on the 2002-2008 TIP. In a regional study conducted by the NC Department of Transportation, Division of Aviation comparing twelve municipal airports, the Monroe Airport was documented to have the highest annual operations (53,178) even though its operations per based aircraft (503) was only mid-range. Although some of this traffic is through traffic stopping for refueling, etc., a lot of it is driven by growth in industry in the region and by an increasing demand to serve as reliever for general aviation traffic for the Charlotte Douglas International Airport. The City of Monroe and the State of North Carolina have committed substantial funds for growth and development of the Monroe Airport. In 1996, the city adopted a resolution authorizing the issuance of$4,245,000 in combined enterprise system revenue bonds to finance a number of needed improvements at the airport. The Capital Improvement Program at the Airport, which included expanding aircraft aprons, new access roads, a hangar relocation and the construction of a new terminal building, was completed in the Fall of 1998. Land acquisition for future expansion of the 4 City of Monroe 2002-2008 TIP Priorities e e e e e airport was finally concluded this summer. Aircraft activity at the airport continues to increase and current consideration is being given to expand the aircraft apron at the new terminal to accommodate the increasing air traffic and the need for a new maintenance hangar. Planning for this expansion is currently underway with initial estimates approaching $1,000,000~ City staff has consulted with the Division of Aviation on the degradation of our present parallel taxiway and has requested funds for the relocation of the taxiway and extension to Runway 23. The relocation of the parallel taxiway from 200 feet to 300 feet will enable the City and the State to fulfill a commitment made to the FAA during the commissioning of the Monroe ILS in August, 1994. The proposed project includes constructing 1,750 linear feet of new taxiway, reconstructing 1,300 linear feet of existing ramp, constructing one new cross over at the Runway 23 end and overlaying three existing crossovers. The total estimated cost of the project is $2,000,000. The City has already spent $70,000 as a stop gap measure in overlaying two sections of the present parallel taxiway that had become very brittle with age. While the work did not resolve the needed relocation, these areas were immediate safety issues and were affecting the integrity of the Airport for general aviation use. The State has contributed at least $500,000 for the past several years to assist with the Airport Capital Improvement Program completed in 1998. The City of Monroe strongly requests a continuation of this funding and consideration for the parallel taxiway improvements and additional apron expansion projects. IDENTIFIED FUTURE NEEDS Allen Street Connector A portion of the city, the Icemorlee neighborhood in particular, is separated from much of the rest of the city and emergency services by two heavily used railroad tracks. The proposed Allen Street connector, as indicated on the adopted Thoroughfare Plan for the City of Monroe, would provide unimpeded access to this part of the city. The City of Monroe requests that NCDOT undertake a feasibility study to determine if the connector can be constructed at a reasonable cost and what possible negative impacts the connector will have on the Icemorlee neighborhood. ENDORSEMENT OF SELECTED COUNTY PRIORITIES Although the recommendations as listed above are Monroe's top priorities for the 2002-2008 TIP, the city also endorses Union County's list of Consensus Priorities, especially the following items: 1. R-2559 and R-3329, multi-lane, limited access, Monroe Bypass from Forest Hills School Road (SR 1754) westward to the Charlotte Outer Loop. R-2SS9 is FUNDED. a) Move segments B and C to construction as soon as possible (Forest Hills School Road to West of US 601). Widen US 601 to multi-lane from existing US 74 northward to Sikes Mill Road (US 74 Monroe Bypass). Now included in draft TIP, 2002-2008 as U-4024. b) Accelerate the segments running westward from US 601 to Charlotte Outer Loop as much as possible. c) Implement improvements to Rocky River Road (SR 1007) to enable this road to facilitate movement of traffic from US 74 bypass to existing US 74. 2. Realign NC 75 from east ofWaxhaw to the SC state line to connect with the new SC 75 to 1-77 in Rock Hill. 5 City of Monroe 2002-2008 .

This is a request to complete the funding for the existing property. Land Acquisition-Reimbursement-Dickerson Property The City of Monroe purchased 39.62 acres of land from the Dickerson Realty Corporation for future Airport development along the southeast side of Runway 5. This request is to recover funds that the City has already expended to acquire land for future airport expansion. Land Acquisition-Phase I This project consists of the acquisition of approximately 47 acres of land near the end of Runway 23. This land is located in the approach to Runway 23 and will allow for the integrity of the approach to be maintained. This acquisition will also allow for future development of a Corporate Hangar area. Existing T-Hangar Area Taxilane Extension Under a previous project, a Taxilane was constructed for T -Hangars. This project will continue the Taxilane to allow for the construction of an additional set of T-Hangars. Terminal Area Security Fencing This project includes the installation of approximately 5,000 LF of chain link fence and gates from the Terminal/Hangar area along the property line and tie in to existing fence at the end of Runway 5. This will completely secure the terminal area. e FISCAL YEAR 2003 e Runway Rehabilitation and Strengthening This project consists of the overlay and rehabilitation of the existing runway to increase the strength to 60,000 pounds Dual Wheel with approximately 2" of P-401 asphalt. Land AcQJIisition-Phase II Currently the land to the East of Runway 23 is owned by Teledyne Industries. This land lies within the Transitional surfaces of the airport. The project would entail swapping approximately 9.5 acres of land and purchasing 3.5 acres more. This will allow the City of Monroe to remove the existing parking lot and access road and relocate these facilities outside the Transitional surfaces. e e e e e FISCAL YEAR 2004 North Hangar Area Taxiway Extension Due to the increase of requests for hangars and the lack of space available in the existing terminal area for development, this project will allow for the needed expansion. This project consists of the construction of approximately 1000' X 35' of Taxiway, including a runway connector to the end of Runway 23, for the development of the North Hangar Area. North Hangar Area Aircraft Apron, Phase I-A Due to the increase of requests for hangars and the lack of space available in the existing terminal area for development, this project will allow for the needed expansion. This project consists of the construction of a 600' X 100' apron for access to the large hangars. North Hangar Area Access Road, Phase I-A Due to the increase of requests for hangars and the lack of space available in the existing terminal area for development, this project will allow for the needed expansion. This project consists of the construction of approximate 1000' X 24' access road and parking for the hangar area. Teledyne Area Parking Lot and Access Road This project consists of the construction/relocation of the existing access road to the Teledyne facility and relocation of the main parking lot. This project is necessary in order to move these facilities out of the Transitional Surfaces.
