Patt Crissman, The Wooten Company, noted that a public hearing is required when closing out a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program. Ms. Crissman reported that the FY 2004 Infrastructure Grant application was for up to 22 water connections and 6 sewer connections. The program was advertised twice and letters were mailed to 68 rural churches throughout Harnett County. Ten families applied, four were eligible. The original budget was $75,000; $24,037.64 was spent and $50,962 will be de-obligated. Chairman Byrd called to order a public hearing and opened the meeting for comments from the public. Comments were received from Jerry Morris, Walker Road, Lillington, regarding his relative’s water and sewer. His comments did not relate to the

subject of this public hearing. There being no further comments, Chairman Byrd closed the public hearing. Commissioner Titchener moved to authorize execution of documents regarding the CDBG FY 04 Infrastructure Grant Closeout. Commissioner McNeill seconded the motion and it passed unanimously. Patt Crissman, The Wooten Company, noted that the County recently received notification of the award of a $400,000 housing rehabilitation grant under the NCHFA Single Family Rehabilitation Program. Prior to receiving formal award of the grant, the County must adopt an Assistance Policy and a Conflict of Interest Policy. Only elderly and/or disabled low or moderate income households are eligible to apply for rehabilitation assistance. The finished level of rehabilitation is held to a higher standard than in the CDBG program, so only moderately deteriorated versus severely deteriorated households are likely to be eligible for assistance. The maximum amount of assistance is $40,000 per household. NCHFA loans are forgiven at the rate of $3,000 per year versus CDBG programs where loans are typically forgiven over an 8-year period. Depending on date of receipt of the formal grant award, the program will be advertised to the public in late March or in April. Commissioner Andrews moved to adopt a Conflict of Interest Policy for the NCHF SFR 06 Program and an Assistance Policy for the 2006 Cycle of the Single-Family Rehabilitation Program. Vice Chairman Hill seconded the motion and it passed unanimously. Joseph Jeffries, Chief Planner, presented a zoning change request from Donald Blalock, .69 acre tract located in Black River Township, Hwy. 55, from RA-30 to Commercial. Staff concludes that the request does not conform to the Harnett County Land Use Plan and does not advance the public health, safety , and general welfare, and recommends that the request be denied. The Planning Board also recommends denial of the zoning change request. Chairman Byrd called to order a public hearing on the proposed zoning change request and opened the meeting for comments from the public regarding the matter. Comments were received from the following citizens: 1. Donald Blalock, owner, for 2. Ted Altman, Angier for 3. William B. Ray, Willow Spring, owns adjacent property against 4. Harold Moore, Angier, adjacent property against 5. Barry Gregory, lives across the road from property against 6. Barbara Locklear, Old Stage Road north against 7. Frank Matthews, 3535 NC Hwy 55 against There being no further comments, Chairman Byrd closed the public hearing and moved to deny the request to rezone the property from RA-30 to Commercial. Commissioner McNeill seconded the motion and it passed unanimously. Joseph Jeffries, Chief Planner, presented a proposed text amendment to the Subdivision Regulations which would establish Recreation and Park Development fees. Mr. Jeffries noted that due to the amount of residential growth in the County, the demand for public recreation and park areas has increased. The Planning Board considered the text amendment application and no one spoke in opposition. Chairman Byrd called to order a

public hearing and opened the meeting for comments regarding the matter. Comments were received from the following citizens: 1. George Womble, Keith Hills, developer against 2. Diane Soliday, Cameron for 3. Mickey Bennett, 1662 Clark Road, surveyor against 4. Tammy Wyland, Cameron for 5. Jimmy Johnson, Angier, developer against 6. Cary Stewart, 520 Old Coats Road against 7. Jeffrey Smith, Old Buies Creek Road against There being no further comments, Chairman Byrd closed the public hearing. Commissioner McNeill moved to adopt the resolution amending the Harnett County Subdivision Regulations text to establish a $500 per lot fee for recreation and park development. The requested text amendment will be implemented immediately and the options for the collection method will be considered at a future Board meeting. Commissioner Titchener seconded the motion and it passed unanimously. Joseph Jeffries, Chief Planner, presented a proposed amendment to the Highway 87 Land Use Map. Mr. Jeffries explained that in 2002, the Board of Commissioners adopted a future land use map for the Hwy 87 corridor. As a result of rapid growth in that area, Planning staff recommends the land use plan, specifically between the intersection of Buffalo Lake Road and Hwy 24, be revaluated. Staff believes this area would be better served with a land use classification of Compact Mixed Use (CMU) instead of the current residential classification. A Compact Mixed Use (CMU) designation encourages a combination of small lot residential, multifamily, manufactured home parks, and commercial and light industrial uses. Chairman Byrd called to order a public hearing regarding the proposed change. No comments were offered and Chairman Byrd closed the public hearing. Commissioner McNeill moved to adopt the amendment as presented. Commissioner Hill seconded the motion and it passed unanimously. Neil Emory, County Manager, presented a proposed utility agreement with the Town of Erwin. The County desires to purchase from the Town both the wastewater collection and treatment system and the water treatment and distribution system so that these systems may become a part of the systems owned and/or operated by the County. The Town desires to sell to the County both its wastewater collection and treatment system and its water treatment and distribution system. This utility agreement transfers ownership of the Town of Erwin’s water system and wastewater system to the County of Harnett. Commissioner McNeill moved to approve the agreement as presented. Commissioner Titchener seconded the motion and it passed unanimously. Departmental reports were filed with the Board from the Sheriff’s Department, Emergency Medical Services, Animal Control and Planning & Inspections. Commissioner Titchener moved to endorse local phone service between Angier and Smithfield. Commissioner Andrews seconded the motion and it passed unanimously. Mr. Emory provided an update on the sales tax exchange proposal regarding Medicaid.

There being no further business, Commissioner McNeill moved to adjourn. Commissioner Hill seconded the motion and it passed unanimously. The Harnett County Board of Commissioners’ regular meeting, February 20, 2006, adjourned at 9:00 p.m.
