Objective A: To ensure strong financial management with fiduciary accountability and plan for the future resource sustainability by aligning

resources with City priorities.
Tagged Passions:finance, accountability, and sustainability

Executive Summary: The FY 19 adopted budget included funding to complete a public safety needs assessment in preparation for a public safety bond

referendum to be considered by voters in November 2019. The adopted FY19 Capital Improvement Program ( CIP ) included funding from a public safety bond referendum to support several public safety projects. Council has recently decided not to pursue a referendum. The needs assessment, however, was initiated prior to that decision. The contract team will present their findings at this point and next steps. Direction from Council regarding the timing and priority of future capital investments to support public safety operations will be needed to support the consultant team s completion of their analysis and support public safety capital planning.

Background: The number and diversity of public safety related capital project requests has grown as the City has continued to develop and existing

facilities have aged. Many of the City s current fire stations were constructed in the distant past for a smaller city or inherited from County fire district volunteer operations. These facilities in many cases no longer support modern equipment or operations, or they may be poorly located to adequately respond to current and future development, or they may simply suffer from the ravages of age, or all of the above. Similarly police operations have grown and evolved along with the community they serve, but supporting facilities have not always kept pace with changing operational needs and standards for emergency operations.

Council funded a study to review the capital needs for both police and fire operations. The initial results of that work will be presented.

Tagged Passions:council and public safety

Issues/Analysis: The next phase of the study is to assist in the development of a five year CIP responding to the needs identified. Council direction

on how or whether that effort should proceed is sought.

Relationship To Strategic Plan: 2024 Goals, Goal IV: Desirable Place to Live, Work and Recreate

Tagged Passions:strategic

Executive Summary: Currently, the City of Fayetteville does not have a process for reviewing murals in the City s Historic District, nor on Local

Landmarks in the Design Guidelines for Fayetteville s Historic District and Local Landmarks (2000). Staff has received several inquiries regarding whether murals are permitted and if so, what is the approval process. Staff is recommending that Council consider options to amend the Design Guidelines for Fayetteville s Historic Districts and Local Landmarks to establish a review and approval process.
Tagged Passions:council and historic

Background:

Page 1 City of Fayetteville Printed on 5/1/2019

File Number: 19-772

On September 25, 2018, the Historic Resources Commission (HRC) heard a request to paint a mural on the rear wall of 126 Hay Street (COA 18-030). A

discussion held between the applicant, staff and the HRC revealed that no process existed for regulating murals in the City of Fayetteville. At the request of the Commission, members of the planning staff researched the process used by other localities in North Carolina to regulate murals in historic districts. The findings were presented to the HRC and discussions were held over the course of several months.
Tagged Passions:planning, boards and commissions, streets, and historic

At its February 26, 2019 meeting, the Historic Resources Commission recommended a request be forwarded to City Council so a public hearing would be

set to receive citizen comments on a proposed amendment to the Design Guidelines for Fayetteville s Historic District and Local Landmarks that would regulate murals in the HLO.
Tagged Passions:council, boards and commissions, historic, and hearing

Issues/Analysis: Numerous cities and towns in North Carolina allow murals, including in historic districts. They include Raleigh, Greensboro,

Hillsboro, Matthews, Greensboro, Winston-Salem and Durham, to name a few. While the review and approval process for each varies, most require an administrative review for the repainting of formerly painted walls or noncontributing walls in historic district. The painting of previously unpainted contributing surfaces requires the approval of the local Historic Board/Commission. The commonality amongst the local government ordinances and processes reviewed was that they specifically define artwork. Most exempt murals from being defined as signage, since they contain no graphics nor text, which advertises businesses, products or services offered on the premises. Murals are solely artistic in nature. The City of Fayetteville does not prohibit, permit or regulate art in the Design Guidelines for Fayetteville s Historic Districts and Local Landmarks manual. As it is silent, this ambiguity could call into question the City s authority to review murals in Historic/Landmark Overlay (HLO) Districts. Adding additional language would provide clarity.

should be large enough to dominate the wall surface, but not so large as to overwhelm the
