Renovation and Expansion of the Fordham Boulevard Sidepath
The Council approved the acceptance of $446,400 in funds from the NC Department of Transportation for the Fordham Boulevard Sidepath, an important element in the Town’s existing system of off-road, multi-purpose trails. This project will provide an important link in the pedestrian/bicycle transportation network along Fordham Boulevard. It will help connect the neighborhoods around Glen Lennox and Meadowmont with the Ephesus-Fordham District.

Task Force for the American Legion Post 6 Property
The Council approved appointments to a new task force to consider future land uses at the American Legion Post 6 property. A community charrette is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 8, at the American Legion Hut, 1714 Legion Road. The charrette is the first step in a public engagement process initiated by the Town Council, following its December 2016 decision to purchase the 36-acre property.

New Innovative, Light Industrial Conditional Zoning District (LI-CZD) and Land Use Plan Amendment to Include an Innovative, Light Industrial Opportunity Area Designation
The Council approved a new zoning classification in order to encourage new creative jobs that are a good fit for the community consistent with the Town’s adopted Commercial Development Strategy. The actions do not rezone any property; instead, they give individual property owners within the designated Millhouse Road area the opportunity to submit a rezoning application for Council review and action.

Land Use Management Ordinance Re-Write
In response to a request from the Town Council, Town Manager Roger Stancil has initiated a process for conducting a major re-write of the Town’s Land Use Management Ordinance (LUMO). The Council considered resources required to accomplish this task and recommended funding and authorization to proceed. The LUMO is more than 30 years old. The Town conducted the last major update more than a decade ago.
