SHERIFF’S OFFICE BUDGET REVISION
FOR LOCAL BLOCK GRANT

The Wake County Sheriff’s Office received a grant for $103,801 in May of 2004 for the 2003 Local Law Enforcement Block Grant.
At that time, the Board of Commissioners adopted a budget for this grant. At the end of the fiscal year, not all of the funds had been expended or encumbered; only the amounts encumbered ($50,387) were included in the fiscal year 2005 budget at July 1, 2004. Consequently the remaining funds plus interest earned need to be rebudgeted in order to purchase the appropriate supplies as
originally intended. The amount needed is $54,521; of this $1,107 is for interest earnings and $53,414 is from the general fund balance.

Upon motion of Commissioner Jeffreys, seconded by Commissioner Ward, the Board unanimously approved the adoption of a budget revision for the Sheriff’s Office in the amount of $54,521 for the 2003 Local Law Enforcement Block Grant.

PUBLIC HEARING
ORDINANCE AMENDMENT OA 05/01
TO AMEND THE WAKE COUNTY UNIFIED DEVELOPMENT ORDINANCE
TO ESTABLISH PROVISIONS FOR RESIDENTIAL DENSITY BONUSES

Chairman Bryan announced a public hearing to consider an amendment to the Wake County Zoning Ordinance to establish provision for residential density bonuses, duly advertised as provided by statute for Monday, June 6, 2005, at 2:00 p.m., in Room 700 of the Wake County Courthouse, Raleigh, North Carolina.

Mr. Keith Lankford, Wake County Planning Department, was recognized to explain the amendment. He stated that the proposed amendment would establish a variety of methods that may be utilized to increase density in a proposed subdivision. The increased density is limited to a maximum of 35 percent of the allowable density in the zoning district where the proposed subdivision is located. All residential developments and/or subdivision that are approved with a density bonus must be consistent with the Wake County Land Use Plan, and must comply with all other County regulations. Density bonuses of varying amounts would be available if a proposed development met one or more of the following situations:

1. The joint platting of two or more adjoining parcels subject to certain criteria (10 percent bonus); would encourage the developer of two or more adjacent properties to coordinate their development plans.

2. The development of workforce housing (rental or ownership units) as described (up to 25 percent bonus); would address the need for workforce housing for low-moderate income families who currently live and/or work in Wake County

3. The development of mixed-use projects within designated activity centers (20 percent bonus); encourage mixed-use development and help minimize the increase in traffic on the County’s roadways by locating residences in close proximity to shopping and employment opportunities.

4. The provision of more than 65 percent of a development’s total land area as permanent open space (20 percent bonus); encourage developers to preserve substantial amounts of permanent open space to help the County meet its goal of preserving 30 percent of the County as open space.

The factual situation having been presented, Chairman Bryan announced that anyone desiring to comment would be heard at this time.
No one requested to be heard in support of or in opposition to the amendment.

The Chairman then called for the recommendation of the Planning Board and Planning staff.
Mr. Mason Williams, Chairman of the Planning Board, reported that the Planning Board at its meeting of May 4, 2005, by a vote of 7 to 0, recommended that the Board of Commissioners approve the proposed amendment as presented.

Mr. Lankford reported that Planning staff recommends that the Board of Commissioners approve the proposed amendment as presented.

Chairman Bryan declared the hearing closed and invited action by the Board.

There was much discussion about the proposed amendment, including Commissioner Gurley’s concerns regarding the legality of the eligibility requirement that owners/renters must live or work in Wake County for twelve months before occupying a unit provided through a workforce housing density bonus.

Following discussion, Commissioner Ward moved that the Board defer action on the proposed amendment, and that the County Attorney be directed to investigate the constitutionality of the residency and/or work eligibility requirements as it relates to workforce housing density bonuses outlined in the proposed amendment. The motion was seconded by Commissioner Webb. The motion passed with all Commissioners voting aye, except Commissioner Jeffreys who voted nay.
