WEB: Village Council to Consider Traffic Corridor, Farmer's Market at Tuesday Meeting
The Pinehurst Village Council will hold its regular work session at 9 a.m. Tuesday in the Conference Room of the Village Hall. The council will reconvene at 1 p.m. in the Assembly Hall for various public hearings, after which members will vote on action items.
Controversial measures typically are deferred for final action to a later meeting.
Tuesday's agenda includes a presentation on the status of a Western Connector feasibility study, which the council agreed to finance in its initial stages. The study is aimed at examining a potential corridor from N.C. 211 west of Pinehurst, taking Seven Lakes round-trip traffic mostly to and from the southern Moore commercial area without congesting the Pinehurst Traffic Circle.
Also on the agenda is a presentation of the village's annual financial report, which is required by law, and a follow-up presentation on a proposed recreation center.
The agenda also includes a resolution to assess costs of storm sewer and drainage improvements for Dam No. 1 between the village and 22 property owners whose homes are on the Pond No. 1.
Health insurance renewals and a re-appointment to the village planning and zoning board, in addition to the public comment period are also on the morning agenda.
Following a closed session to discuss negotiations of price and "other material terms" of a proposed property acquisition contract, the work session will recess and reconvene in the Conference Room after a series of required public hearings.
At the 1 p.m. public hearings, the council will hear comments on:
--An amendment to the Pinehurst Development Ordinance to govern the number of different exterior facade materials in new residential construction in R-10, R-15, and R-20 zoning districts.
--A proposal to allow FirstHealth of the Carolinas a mobile farmer's market of fresh vegetables and fruit on its property.
General public comments are also heard at the end of the work session and regular council meeting, when anyone may address the council on a public matter.
