PURPOSE: To consider the Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) recommendation that the historic properties known as the Cedar Grove School and the

Schley Grange Hall be approved and forwarded to the State Historic Preservation Office for listing in the National Register of Historic Places.
Tagged Passions:historic preservation, boards and commissions, historic, preservation, and education

BACKGROUND: The federal process for listing a property in the National Register of Historic Places includes a provision giving the BOCC the

opportunity to offer a recommendation supporting or opposing the listing of historic properties within its jurisdiction. The HPC fully supports the nomination of these properties to the National Register. As required, the HPC held a public hearing and received public comment about these proposed National Register listings at its regular meeting on January 22, 2020.
Tagged Passions:historic, property, and hearing

DEAPR contracted with consultants to prepare the National Register Reports to promote recognition for properties of special historical, architectural

or cultural significance to Orange County. This is an ongoing HPC program to protect and preserve historic resources. Funding was provided through the County s Lands Legacy Program, which includes as one of its priorities the protection of lands of historic, cultural, or archaeological significance.
Tagged Passions:funding, recognition, historical, historic, contract, services, and program

The National Register is an honorary designation that carries no local regulatory burden, but does provide a federal and state process for protection

in the case of projects receiving federal or state funding, or projects that require some form of federal or state permit or license.
Tagged Passions:funding, regulation, and license

The attached excerpts from the National Register Reports provide brief statements on the significance and describe how the properties meet the

applicable National Register criteria (Attachments 1 and 2). The full research reports for each property can be viewed via these links: Cedar Grove School: http://www.orangecountync.gov/DocumentCenter/View/9484/Cedar- Grove-School-National-Register-Report?bidId=

Schley Grange Hall: http://www.orangecountync.gov/DocumentCenter/View/9485/Schley- Grange-Hall-National-Register-Report?bidId=

FINANCIAL IMPACT: The National Register Reports were funded in part from the Lands Legacy Program budget for FY 2018-19. The Cedar Grove School cost

was 3,500 (less than usual cost due to DEAPR staff providing much of the research). The Schley Grange Hall cost totaled 2,750 in County funds, plus 2,750 in matching funds provided by the Schley Grange.

RECOMMENDATION(S): The Manager recommends that the Board endorse the National Register Nominations of the Cedar Grove School and Schley Grange Hall

and authorize the Chair to sign the Elected Official Comment Letters (Attachment 3) to indicate the Board s recommendation for listing both properties in the National Register.

PURPOSE: To hold a public hearing, receive comment, and consider action on a request to modify the Master Telecommunication Plan Map (MTP) in

accordance with the provisions of Section 5.10.2 Master Telecommunication Plan of the Orange County Unified Development Ordinance (UDO). Specifically, the BOCC is considering a request to add 7203 Union Grove Church Road to the MTP.
Tagged Passions:ordinance, streets, development, Telecommunications, union, church, telecommunications, Development, hearing, and UDO

BACKGROUND: There are portions of the County that are either not served, or are underserved, by telecommunication services. This has become an

impediment to essential County communications for several departments (i.e. Emergency Management, Sheriff, Information Technologies, Building Inspections, Health Department, etc.) and has negatively impacted local residents. In an attempt to address these issues, the County created the MTP.
Tagged Passions:Homebuilder, health, public safety, Telecommunications, services, emergency, telecommunications, communications, and Communications

The MTP is, ultimately, a marketing tool identifying properties where owners have expressed an interest in allowing the development of

telecommunication facilities. Staff encourages providers to develop facilities on these properties in an effort to promote the efficient distribution of telecommunication facilities serving the public at large as well as public safety telecommunication networks.
Tagged Passions:market, development, public safety, Telecommunications, telecommunications, and Development

Requests to include/remove properties from the MTP are processed consistent with the provisions of Section 5.10.2 of the UDO. Such requests must be

submitted to the Planning Department by December 1 of each year and are reviewed annually, as warranted, by the BOCC at the first public hearing of the calendar year.
Tagged Passions:planning, public safety, hearing, and UDO

The MTP was originally approved by the BOCC on February 28, 2011. Agenda materials from this meeting can be accessed at:

As the adoption/modification of the MTP does not involve the approval of a specific development project, establish regulatory guidelines, make formal

recommendations on revising development criteria or establish recommendations on modifying development policies (i.e. small area plans), or provide any form of development approval, the Planning Board is not required to review or make a recommendation on the MTP.
Tagged Passions:planning, regulation, development, and Development

(h) Prior to issuing a building permit for the collocation of an antenna array on an existing facility, an applicant shall demonstrate that the

collocation is located appropriately on the facility with the overall goal being to preserve the carrying capacity of the facility for future collocations and to minimize the visual intrusiveness and impact, including the profile of the facility. (i) In determining the necessary height for a facility, or the height of a collocation on a facility, the signal strengths analyzed shall be the threshold or lowest signal strength at which the customer equipment is designed to function, which may be required to be determined by the manufacturer s published specifications for the customer equipment. (j) Approval of the Planning Director to verify consistency with the definition of stealth facility is required. (k) All telecommunications towers shall be placed in heavily wooded areas on the site to the maximum extent possible so as to lessen the visual intrusiveness of the structure and accessory structures. (l) No tower shall be permitted to exceed its designed loading capacity. For all wireless support structures attached to existing structures, the engineer certification statement shall include certification that the structure can support the load superimposed from the wireless support structure. All wireless support structures shall have the capacity to permit multiple users; at a minimum monopole wireless support structures shall be structurally designed to accommodate four users and self-support/lattice or guyed wireless support structures shall, at a minimum accommodate three users.

1. Amendment to the Master Telecommunications Plan Map: In accordance with the provisions of Section 5.10.2 Master Telecommunication Plan of the

Orange County Unified Development Ordinance (UDO), the County has received a request to amend the Master Telecommunications Plan Map (MTP) by adding a parcel of property off Union Grove Church Road within the Chapel Hill Township. The MTP identifies properties where telecommunication providers are encouraged to develop, redevelop, modify, or expand telecommunication facilities in an effort to promote the efficient distribution of telecommunication facilities serving the public at large. This includes locations that serve, or may be required to serve, public safety and information technology telecommunications network. The MTP, originally adopted by the County on February 14, 2011, includes 15 parcels and is available on the Planning Department s web site at http://www.co.orange.nc.us/1334/Planning-GIS-Maps. It should be noted the MTP only pre-identifies potential telecommunication sites.
