Mayor Williams opened the hearing and asked Mr. Bamford to provide the staff report for the zoning portion of the request. CUD-Z-19-05 CUP-SB 19-02, Thompson Business Park Presenter: David Bamford, Planning Services Manager Conditional use rezoning (CUD-Z-19-05) with associated subdivision plan (CUP-SB-19-02) request submitted by TMTLA Associates to rezone 33.7 +/- acres from Service Business (SB) and Single-Family Residential (R-20) to Service Business Conditional Use (SB C-218) and Single-Family Residential Conditional Use (R-9 C-218).

Action: Move the Town Council find that although the rezoning request is partly inconsistent with the Garner Forward Comprehensive Plan as detailed in Section V of the staff report, it is reasonable and in the public interest because it will likely allow appropriate types of business and industry at the described location which will provide opportunities for access to goods and/or services useful to the surrounding area and therefore, I move further the Town Council adopt Ordinance (2019) 4007 approving rezoning request number CUD-Z-19-05 and in doing so also amend the Town s Comprehensive Growth Plan from designating the western 24.51 +/- acres of the subject property identified previously as Medium Density Residential to Light Industrial.

RESOLUTION DESIGNATING THE TOWN OF GARNER AS A BEE CITY USA AFFILIATE

WHEREAS, the mission of BEE CITY USA is to galvanize communities to sustain pollinators, responsible for the reproduction of almost 90 of the world's flowering plant species, by providing them with healthy habitat, rich in a variety of native plants and free to nearly free of pesticides; and WHEREAS, thanks to the more than 3,600 species of native bees in the United States, along with introduced honeybees, we have very diverse dietary choices rich in fruits, nuts, and vegetables; and
Tagged Passions:agriculture, plant, and pesticide

WHEREAS, bees and other pollinators have experienced population declines due to a combination of habitat loss, poor nutrition, pesticides (including insecticides, fungicides, and herbicides), parasites, diseases, and climate change; and

WHEREAS, pollinator-friendly communities can benefit local and regional economies through healthier ecosystems, increased vegetable and fruit crop yields, and increased demand for pollinator- friendly plant materials from local growers; and

Tagged Passions:agriculture, materials, environment, plant, poverty, pesticide, nutrition, and herbicide

WHEREAS, ideal pollinator-friendly habitat:

Provides diverse and abundant nectar and pollen from plants blooming in succession

throughout the growing season; Provides undisturbed spaces (leaf and brush piles, unmown fields or field margins, fallen trees

Tagged Passions:plant and trees

and other dead wood) for nesting and overwintering for wild pollinators; Provides water for drinking, nest-building, and butterfly puddling; Is free to nearly free of pesticides, as many pesticides can harm pollinators and/or their habitat; Is comprised of mostly native wildflowers, grasses, vines, shrubs, and trees, since many wild

pollinators prefer or depend on the native plants with which they co-adapted; Provides connectivity between habitat areas to support pollinator movement and resilience; and WHEREAS, Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is a long-term approach to maintaining healthy landscapes and facilities that minimizes risks to people and the environment by: identifying and removing the causes of pest problems rather than only attacking the symptoms (the pests); employing pests' natural enemies along with cultural, mechanical, and physical controls when prevention is not enough; and using pesticides only when no other method is feasible or effective; and WHEREAS, supporting pollinators fosters broad-based community engagement in environmental awareness and sustainability; and WHEREAS, the Town of Garner should be certified a BEE CITY USA community because: The Town recognizes the value of providing opportunities and amenities that improve the quality of life of its residents. The Town supports activities that encourage an active and engaged citizenry. The Town seeks to provide a broad mix of arts, leisure and recreation opportunities to meet the needs of an active, growing and diverse community. The Town proactively plans for appropriate use of open space and environmental resources. NOW, THEREFORE, in order to enhance understanding among local government staff and the public about the vital role that pollinators play and what each of us can do to sustain them, the Town of Garner chooses to support and encourage healthy pollinator habitat creation and enhancement.

DATE: October 30, 2019

SUBJECT: Public Works Committee Recommendation Changes to Adopted Fee Schedule At their October 29, 2019 meeting, the Public Works Committee discussed an addition to the Town s Adopted Fee Schedule proposed by the Town Engineer. The proposal adds fees for construction drawing review that will help offset the cost of services required to support development. This type fee is being charged by several neighboring municipalities. Additional information can be found in the attached memo. The Public Works Committee recommends adopting the following fees as proposed by staff: Construction Drawing Review Fee Proposed Fee_______ Initial Construction Drawing Fee (includes 2 review and 1 signature submittal) 500 + 10 per lot Subsequent Construction Drawing Fee (per each additional review) 300 The Public Works Committee also recommends increasing the following Development Review Fees: Development Review Fee Current Fee Proposed Fee_______ Major Subdivision, Preliminary Plat CUP 500 + 10 per lot 600 + 10 per lot Major Subdivision, Preliminary Plat SUP 500 + 10 per lot 600 + 10 per lot Major Subdivision, Preliminary Plat 250 + 5 per lot 300 + 5 per lot The Public Works Committee recommends these changes to the fee schedule take effect January 1, 2020. TO: Public Works Committee FROM: Chris Johnson, PE - Town Engineer DATE: August 13, 2019 SUBJECT: Engineering Construction Drawing Review Fee FY2020 _____________________________________________________________________________________ During the FY20 budget preparation, the Engineering Department reviewed its current fee schedule in relation to services provided by Departmental staff. Currently, the Engineering Department charges fees associated with inspections of streets, sidewalks, and stormwater control measures (SCM s) prior to construction. These fees are shown in Figure 1 below for reference. Although these fees recover costs associated with inspections staff, there are currently no fees associated with time related to construction drawing plan review. The Planning Department charges development review fees that cover the Preliminary Subdivision/Site Plans portion of projects (see Figure 2 below). These development review fees recover a portion of costs by staff for the review of preliminary subdivision/site plans as administered by Planning Department via the Technical Review Committee (TRC), which also includes Engineering staff time for the review of preliminary street, sidewalk, and stormwater design. However, following approval of preliminary design plans, construction drawings are required for all public infrastructure, including streets, sidewalks, stormwater, and water/sewer (as reviewed by City of Raleigh). Engineering staff administers the construction drawing review process, which typically includes a similar number of plan reviews (3 reviews and a final plans signature submittal). There are currently no fees collected by the Town of Garner for this portion of the plan review process. Contrarily, most towns in Wake County charge similar plan review fees for construction drawing review to recover the associated costs of staff time dedicated to these services. Based on our review, fees for construction drawing review in similar sized municipalities in Wake County are shown in Figure 3 below.

For example, the Town of Apex charges cover 2 plan reviews only, they charge another fee at half the cost of the original fee for the 3rd, 5th, 7th plan review cycles. Holly Springs charge 450 per review after the 2nd plan review cycle. These additional fees are intended to cover additional staff time on those projects that require a higher degree of staff time associated with the project. Additional review cycles may be required due to significant plan changes, or due to comments not being properly addressed by the engineering consultant. The Town of Garner is currently the only Town shown that is not charging fees associated with construction drawing review. In addition, the absence of fees has led to many projects encountering a higher number of plan review cycles due to engineering consultants not adequately addressing plan review comments provided. In some cases, plans have been submitted two to three additional times without addressing comments from the first plan review cycle. Unfortunately, when plan reviews are provided at no charge, there is less incentive for a consultant to efficiently address comments, but rather rush a resubmittal back in to the Town for review as requested by their client. This leads to wasted time by Town staff to address the same comments repeatedly through each plan review cycle. With this said, staff believes that instituting a similar plan review fee for construction drawing review would not only recover a portion of staff time dedicated to this service, but would also decrease the number of plan review cycles on come projects as consultants will be more likely to be more efficient with their initial plan submittal and subsequent resubmittals. RECOMMDENDATION Based on the information provided, staff recommends instituting fees for construction drawing plan review as shown in Figure 4 below. Staff recommends Council consider making these fees effective in September 2019 for all new construction drawing submittals. Initial Construction Drawing Fee Subsequent Construction Drawing Fee 500 + 10/lot (2 reviews and 1 signature submittal) 300 for each additional review
