Starting off w/ a presentation on signage and exemptions.
Bishop McMillan (?) of Faith Tabernacle, sign in place since 1984 & needs to be replaced, asking for permission to change how the sign looks & illuminate the sign while replacing it.
Foushee asks about whether lighting is internal or external. It is external.
Public Hearing on a Land Use Ordinance Amendment Relating to Community or Regional Utility Facilities
OWASA requesting permission to construct a facility to improve water quality production. Needs to place in area not currently zoned for it.
Interesting (no sarcasm).
OWASA utilities engineer comes up to answer and gives us a longer presentation on what the purpose and need are.
oxidant used to add to raw water to help with taste and odor. used during warm seasons to keep algae, etc down. The closer this is done to the raw water, the better, before it's on its way to the treatment plant.
The injection system is through a pipe, no misting, already mixed into water before hitting open basins.
Very often, labs dedicated to this. Carrboro water is very safe.
400 residents surveyed, and we received high marks throughout.
High level of satisfaction with cleanliness & appearance in public areas. People feel safe in Carrboro (except maybe those who left????)
C+ for citizens with disabilities.
D- for affordable housing. (No one is surprised, see earlier tweets on who has started drifting away from our town).
Most important issues to citizens - controlling growth, overcrowding, and affordable housing.
Respondents feel well informed and involved.
Slade reminds us that environmental sustainability is included
Just cause the high(er) SES people are happy, doesn't mean things are awesome.
Talking about the large number of "neutral" on satisfaction w/ development. People don't care? Want to understand more what people are thinking.
Foushee: Why was race/ethnicity not used in the cross tabulations made available in the report? (Ooooohhhhhh).
No answer right now, will get back to the board.
I really think hot cocoa would go a long way towards #CBOA attendance.
