4.7 Streets Maintenance Exchange

Tagged Interests: streets

Speaker: Kyle Hubert, Transportation and Facilities

Tagged Interests: transportation

Executive Summary: To efficiently balance street maintenance needs with

Tagged Interests: streets

available funding, staff has been in discussions with the North Carolina

Tagged Interests: funding

Department of Transportation (NCDOT) to exchange maintenance

Tagged Interests: transportation

responsibilities of several streets in Cary. The purpose of the street

Tagged Interests: streets

maintenance exchange is for NCDOT to maintain major thoroughfares, while

Cary maintains smaller local and collector streets. Over the years, similar

Tagged Interests: streets

resolutions have been passed to clarify the exchange of street maintenance

Tagged Interests: streets

responsibilities between Cary and NCDOT.

Recommendation: Adopt the attached Resolution requesting that (1) sections

of Morrisville Parkway and Cary Parkway be added to the State Highway

System; and (2) sections of Turner Creek Road, Piney Plains Road, Old

Tagged Interests: streets

Raleigh Road, and Gregson Drive be removed from the State Highway System

Tagged Interests: streets

and become the responsibility of Cary.

4.8 Remove Citizen s Convenience Center Hours from Town Code of Ordinances Speaker: Scott Hecht, Public Works

Tagged Interests: ordinance, Public Works, and public works

Executive Summary: The Citizen s Convenience Center is a drop-off facility that provides citizens with options for disposing of waste, yard waste,

and
Tagged Interests: facility

recyclables. Residents can quickly and easily dispose of waste, reducing the

likelihood that items slated for disposal are stored in less appropriate

Tagged Interests: commercial

locations. It also helps to ensure waste and recyclables are disposed of

properly. To set clear expectations for residents, the days and hours of the

Convenience Center had been included in the Town s Code of Ordinances. This is the only Town-owned facility with specific days and hours listed in

the
Tagged Interests: ordinance and facility

Code. Due to fluctuations in resident needs, inclement weather, and holiday

Tagged Interests: holiday

closings of the South Wake Landfill, staff has recognized the need for greater

Tagged Interests: recognition, landfill, and solid waste

flexibility on the Center s schedule. Rather than request approval from Council for each update, removal of this specific wording from the ordinance

Tagged Interests: ordinance and council

March 28, 2019

Page 5

will allow Public Works to continuously assess the needs and make

Tagged Interests: Public Works and public works

adjustments while still providing high quality services to our community.

Tagged Interests: services

Recommendation: Staff recommends that Council adopt the attached

Tagged Interests: council

amendment to Town of Cary Code of Ordinances Sec. 26-146(b).

Tagged Interests: ordinance

4.9 Street Renaming

Tagged Interests: streets

Speaker: Debra Grannan, Planning and Development Services

Tagged Interests: planning, development, services, and Development

Executive Summary: The Carpenter Fire Station Road Realignment Project will

Tagged Interests: streets and fire departments and districts

require the renaming of several street segments. A comprehensive approach

Tagged Interests: streets

will be taken with renaming the major road segments and will likely coincide

Tagged Interests: streets

with the completion of the realignment project. However, to enhance public

safety response, one segment of road affected by this project needs to be

Tagged Interests: streets

renamed now. As part of the Carpenter Fire Station Road Realignment Project,

Tagged Interests: streets and fire departments and districts

the at-grade CSX railroad crossing near NC 55 Highway was eliminated,

creating a gap in Carpenter Fire Station Road on the east side of NC 55

Tagged Interests: streets and fire departments and districts

Highway. To minimize the potential for any delays or confusion in the event of

Tagged Interests: events

an emergency, it is necessary to rename this newly created road fragment.

Tagged Interests: streets and emergency

The fragment is not within Cary s corporate limits, so Wake County must rename the road, but the County has asked Cary to provide the name. Staff

Tagged Interests: streets

has worked with the impacted property owners to select a new name for

Tagged Interests: property

consideration.

Recommendation: Town Council adopt the attached resolution requesting

Tagged Interests: council

Wake County change the name of a portion of Carpenter Fire Station to

Tagged Interests: fire departments and districts

Bandelier Lane.
