Applications Accepted to Task Force on Future Uses of American Legion Property

Post Date:03/15/2017 5:14 PM

UPDATE 3/16/2017: The deadline for submitting applications has been extended to 5 p.m. Thursday, March 30.

Are you interested in the future land uses for the American Legion property, a 35-acre piece of land located at 1714 Legion Road? Applications to a Council appointed task force will be accepted through 5 p.m. Thursday, March 30.

The Town Council passed a resolution on March 13 to form a task force representative of a spectrum of viewpoints, including community interests, staff technical support, Council interests, and advisory board perspectives to consider possible future uses of the American Legion property. The Council approved the $7.9 million purchase of the property in December 2016.

If you are interested in representing community interests on the task force, email with your full name, street address, phone number, email address, and a brief statement about your interest in serving, or call Assistant Town Clerk Beth Vazquez at 919-969-5014 no later than 5 p.m. Thursday, March 30.

The Council endorsed a charge for the task force to:

  1. Attend the April 8, 2017 charrette;
  2. Participate in a follow-up work session the week of April 17, 2017, with the consultant team and technical staff to review commonalities and strong themes identified at the charrette and provide the consultant team with feedback and guidance;
  3. Review the proposed schedule for development of a final report with the consultant team and recommend modifications or changes to that schedule for the Town Council’s consideration; and
  4. Continue participation in the process, including additional Task Force meetings, the refinement of a report to Council, a community-report out, and recommendations to the Council for their consideration.

The task force will have met its charge after providing future land use recommendations to the Council for the American Legion Post 6 property, unless the Council determines otherwise.
