ADOPTION OF AGENDA

Motion: Kennedy Second: Johns Vote: Unanimous

REPORTS/DISCUSSION

Affordable Housing Presenter: Jessica Holmes, Wake County Commission Chair, Alicia Arnold and Brian Coats, Wake County Staff Members Commissioner Holmes, Ms. Arnold and Mr. Coats presented and discussed the Affordable Housing plan and the three essential strategies to address Wake County s growing housing crisis: Land Use Policy: The county and its municipalities will use their land use regulations and zoning authorities to indirectly support the production and preservation of affordable housing. More intensive and flexible land use will better enable housing supplies to keep pace with housing needs. This strategy will also help to mitigate housing cost increases and reduce the pressure to convert existing affordable units to market rate housing.
Tagged Passions:policy, boards and commissions, strategic, market, preservation, regulation, zoning, and housing

Leveraged Programs: New subsidized affordable housing will be created or preserved to meet residents needs. Structuring programs to effectively combine public funding with private and philanthropic capital will increase the total amount of affordable housing that can be produced or preserved.

New Public Resources: New funding sources for affordable housing production and preservation will be developed to increase the resources available to meet Wake County s housing challenges. A dedicated public subsidy will help produce affordable housing, because it closes the gap between what a household can afford to pay and what it costs to develop and maintain quality housing. Council expressed appreciation for Commissioner Holmes and Wake County staff for providing such useful information. Commissioner Holmes stated a willingness to participate in further discussions and keep the conversation going.

Use of Fund Balance to Balance the Budget Presenter: Matt Roylance, Assistant Town Manager Operations and Pam Wortham, Finance Director

Tagged Passions:budget, manager, and finance

Mr. Roylance and Ms. Wortham presented the budget process and the use of fund balance to balance the annual operating budget. Also presented were alternatives for Council to consider the following options to minimize the use of fund balance as a budget balancing technique.

Continue current practice (when budget needs dictate) Increased use of multi year funding strategies (smooth out the spikes) Don t make the one time purchases (or cut an equivalent amount elsewhere in the budget to make room for those purchases) Budget revenues more aggressively Raise revenues through higher fees Raise revenue through higher property taxes

Tagged Passions:taxes, property, budget, Taxes, purchasing, council, funding, and property tax

Mr. Singleton recommended loosening the Towns projected revenue estimates as fund balance has not been used in recent years since the revenue has come in higher than projected.

The budget team will explore options to reduce use of fund balance in future budgets. VERT Funding Update Presenter: Mike Franks, Budget and Special Projects Manager

Tagged Passions:budget, manager, and funding

Historic Depot Relocation Presenter: Mari Howe, Downtown Development Director
Tagged Passions:downtown, development, historic, Development, and business

Ms. Howe reported staff completed a preliminary site plan for relocating the Depot to the Town owned property at the corner of Pearl and Main Streets. Ms. Howe reminded Council the Depot currently houses several donated historical items as well as providing general storage for the Downtown Garner Association. One consideration of use may be to utilize the Depot as flex space for meetings and event rentals. However, this would require access to the restrooms at Avery Street or Pearl Street. Depending on the use and location of the Depot, water and sewer facilities may need to be added. Discussions included the option to look at the feasibility of an additional site comparable to Pearl and Main Street in an area further out of the downtown area.

No additional detail provided

Tagged Passions:property, streets, downtown, council, Utility, rental, historical, utility, events, sewer, and water

Council discussed the original intended use of the property which was to provide additional parking in the downtown area. There has been an increase in activity in the downtown area which will increase once the Rec Center is complete and there will be an even greater need for additional parking.

Some concern was expressed at removing the Depot from the Town s historical district. However, with the implementation of the new transit and long range plan, placing the Depot at this site would not be a good fit. Mr. Hodges advised the Council that in 2015 the railroad agreed to pay a portion of relocating the Depot. At this time, they will need to review the site plan and understand the full cost, etc. to evaluate whether they would still consider paying a percentage towards the project.
Tagged Passions:property, downtown, council, historical, and parking

While Council was supportive of repairing and relocating the Depot, they felt at this time, there were still too many unknowns. Council also supported the need to move forward with this project sooner rather than later.

This amendment also includes adding budget for the temporary wages line item.
