line crossing. The increase will be paid out of the project contingency fund.

6. Increasing change order for T.A. Loving Company for the Harnett/Fuquay
Wastewater Project in the amount of $3,100,732.82. This increase is for additional
capacity upgrades and various modifications made to the North Harnett Regional
Wastewater Treatment Plant to facilitate the inclusion of Angier into the regional
partnership. The facility also had to be enlarged to assume the flow from the Erwin
facility which is scheduled to be shut down in FY 2008-09. The Town of Angier will pay
approximately $2,1 million for this upgrade with the Harnett County Department of
Public Utilities paying for the balance.

Housing Northern Training Area (NTA) Project in the amount of $71,745.63. This
change order reflects additional construction costs due the contractor because of
construction delays associated with the wastewater forcemain construction on this
project. Most of the delays derived from environmental permitting problems with the
route of the forcemain on federal property. The increase will be paid from the project’s
contingency funds.
8. Construction Agreement (WBS41086) between the County and NC Department of
Transportation for NC DOT to provide $400,000.00 to grade, drain, base and pave

Bidding, construction, reporting and acceptance of road into the state system will be

bid process as the consulting engineers.

acres, Hwy. 27 W, Barbecue Township. The Planning Board voted unanimously to

Harnett County Zoning Ordinance. Chairman Byrd called to order a public hearing
regarding the requested zoning change and opened the meeting for comments from the
public. No comments were offered and Chairman Byrd closed the public hearing.
Commissioner McNeill moved to approve the zoning change for Chris & Greg Cameron

Christi Barthelme, Planner, presented a proposed text amendment to the Zoning
Ordinance: Article X, Section 1.4, 8.1, B, J & K, 9.0, 9.1, 12. The purpose for the
proposed text amendment is to delete patio homes from being identified as a Specialized
Residential Use within Planned Unit Developments, Setback Requirements and Zero Lot
Lines. The patio home regulations have been used in subdivision design to increase the
density in a development. That is not the intent of this regulation and therefore staff
recommends revising language pertaining to patio homes. The Planning Board voted
unanimously to recommend approval of the request. Chairman Byrd called to order a
public hearing and opened the meeting for comments from the public. Garry Ross, 1148
Melody Lane, requested that the Planned Unit Developments that have been approved but
