*****************-*

 

  1. Discussion of Part-Time Animal Control

 

At the August 14, 2018 Board meeting, Alderman Odham requested an update on the $25,000 funding that was appropriated in the FY2018-19 budget for animal control. Police Chief Summers will report on the progress made toward hiring a part-time animal control officer. A memo from Chief Summers is provided.

 

  1. Conduct a Public Hearing and Consider Adopting an Ordinance Amending Article II “Definitions” and Article XIV “Streets and Sidewalks” of Appendix A “Land Use” of the Code of

 

This public hearing has been duly noticed for today’s meeting to consider amendments to the land-use ordinance. The proposed amendments will delete duplicate residential definitions in Article II, Section 15-15. Additionally, changes are desired for Article II, Section 15-15 and Article XIV, Sections 15-210, 15-214 and 15-215 relative to street classifications, development connectivity, and subdivision requirements for street width, sidewalks and drainage. At its May 1, 2018 meeting, the Planning and Zoning Board voted unanimously to recommend approval of the changes. A memo from Brad Sceviour, Planner II, is attached.

 

  1. Conduct a Public Hearing and Consider Adopting an Ordinance Amending Article II, Section 15-15 “Basic Definitions and Interpretations” of the Code of Ordinances.

 

This public hearing was called to consider amending Article II, Section 15-15 “Basic Definitions and Interpretations”. The changes will clean up residential definitions found in the basic definitions and interpretations section. Older, redundant definitions will be eliminated. At its June 5, 2018 meeting, the Planning and Zoning Board voted unanimously to recommend approval of the changes. A memo from Mr. Sceviour is attached.

 

  1. Consider Adopting a Resolution Approving a Revision to the Street Design Standards.

 

In 2011, staff worked with local engineers and developers to develop design standards for new streets constructed within the city limits. At that time, the oversight of design requirements and inspections was assigned to the City Engineer since the position of Director of Public Works was vacant. The proposed revision will reassign those duties back to the Director of Public Works and will also incorporate changes that have been made to the Land Use Ordinance with respect to street and right-of-way widths. A memo from Matt Montanye, Director of Public Works, is attached.

 

  1. Consider Adopting a Resolution Approving Rules and Regulations for Lease of Parking

 

At the August 14, 2018 Board meeting, rules and regulations were adopted with respect to the City-owned leased parking lots. Revisions have been made with

 

respect to commercial trash dumpsters and the location of those dumpsters. These revisions are identified on the redline version of the rules and regulations. A memo from J.R. Sabatelli, Director of Finance, is attached.

 

  1. Consider Adopting a Resolution to Approve the Submission of an Application for the North Carolina Public Beach and Waterfront Access

 

(Ward 5) Staff is seeking approval to submit an application for the NC Public Beach and Coastal Waterfront Access Grant. If received, the funding will be utilized for amenities at Martin Marietta Park to include a canoe/kayak access and a shelter with restrooms. The anticipated cost of the project is $130,000. Grant funds in the amount of $97,500 are sought. If awarded, the grant will require a 25% match of the total project cost, which equates to $32,500. A memo from Foster Hughes, Director of Parks and Recreation, is attached.

 

  1. Consider Adopting a Resolution Approving a Memorandum of Understanding with Craven County for the 2018 Byrne Justice Assistance Grant (“JAG”) Program

 

The New Bern Police Department applied for and received grant funds from the FY2018 Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (“JAG”). The funds will be utilized to purchase equipment and materials for personnel workstations for the Coastal Narcotics Enforcement Team, which is shared with the Craven County Sheriff’s Office. Because the Police Department is a disparate jurisdiction with Craven County under the grant, a Memorandum of Understanding (“MOU”) is required. The MOU states the City and County agree to the use of $11,334 in grant funds for the purchase described above. No matching funds are required. A memo from Chief Summers is attached.

 

  1. Consider Adopting a Resolution Approving a School Resource Officer Contract with Craven County Board of

 

The Craven County Board of Education desires to contract with the City for the New Bern Police Department to provide school resource officers at New Bern High School, Grover C. Fields Middle School, and H.J. MacDonald Middle School for the 2018/19 school year. The contract provides, in part, for the Board of Education to pay $38,975.00 per school resource officer to offset the cost of salaries and benefits. A brief memo from Chief Summers is attached.

 

  1. Consider Adopting a Resolution Approving a School Resource Officer Contract with Craven County Board of Education for Additional Officers in Elementary

 

Craven County Board of Education has been approved for additional funding to place School Resource (“SRO”) officers in four of its elementary schools. Two of the schools are located within the city limits, JT Barber and Oaks Road Academy/Aspire. These are two of the City’s most disadvantaged elementary schools. Funding is available at the rate of $49,500 per officer. If the contract with the Board of Education is approved, the Police Department will need to increase its

 

number of sworn officers by two. A memo from Chief Summers is attached and includes the budgetary impact of approving this contract. Chief Summers and Mr. Mr. Sabatelli will be available to address budgetary questions.

 

  1. Consider Adopting a Budget Ordinance Amendment for FY2018-19 for Additional School Resource

 

This budget ordinance amendment relates to the previous item. If the contract is approved for two additional SROs to be placed at elementary schools, $109,000 will be appropriated to cover the additional expense to the Police Department. The amendment also recognizes $99,000 from the Board of Education and a transfer of

$10,000 from contingency. A memo from Mr. Sabatelli is attached.

 

  1. Consider Adopting a Budget Ordinance Amendment for FY2018-19.

 

This budget ordinance amendment rolls outstanding purchase orders (POs) from Fiscal Year 2017/18 into the current fiscal year. The reflected amounts represent unspent funds encumbered by the outstanding POs.

 

  1. Appointment(s).

 

Kristen Culler, Assistant City Manager, has resigned from her appointment to Allices for Cherry Point’s Tomorrow. The Board is asked to make a new appointment to replace Ms. Culler.

Progress Made Toward Hiring Part-time Animal Control Officer August 16, 2018

 

 

Greatest Need for Animal Control Assistance

 

After a decision was made to put funding towards part-time assistance with Animal Control, staff researched animal-related call data for the last year and compiled statistics for animal calls handled by police officers when the Animal Control Officer (ACO) was not available. The results were as follows:

  • The highest 4-hour block where an ACO was needed, but was not available was Monday through Friday 4:00 p.m.-8:00 m.
  • The second highest 4 hour block where an ACO was needed, but was not available was Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. This is likely due to the fact that ACO Bryant was off during these times due to training, having to work Saturday or was busy on another
  • 75 of the 506 (15%) calls handled by police officers were on the

 

 

Based on the research, it was determined that the best use of a part time ACO would be to have him work some week nights from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. (or similar hours) and to be placed into an on-call rotation with ACO Bryant so that there would always be an ACO available for call outs for situations that require an ACO’s expertise and/or equipment.

Were a part-time ACO hired and an on-call rotation were established, an ACO could be called out for emergency situations to include:

  • Life threatening injury to an animal that is stray or the its owner is not present;
  • Animal posing an immediate threat to public safety, or
  • Any situation where the Police Department requires Animal Control to

A Nationally Accredited Agency

 

 

Attempts to Find Qualified ACO for Part-Time Work

 

Staff has attempted to find experienced animal control officers who were possibly willing to accept the part-time animal control officer position. A couple of candidates were identified, but ultimately decided to decline, mainly due to their current job schedule conflicting with the proposed New Bern part-time ACO schedule. Staff has found it very difficult to find a candidate with animal control experience. While we can potentially post the position and see if we get any other candidates, it is highly unlikely since we have contacted most if not all of the qualified ACOs in the area.

Discussion on Potentially Outsourcing the Work

 

On June 4, 2018, Aldermen Bengel and Aster called a meeting to discuss the possibility of outsourcing the part-time animal control position to the Colonial Capital Humane Society, who had expressed interest in doing so. Captain Jones attended the meeting on behalf of the Police Department. Representing the Humane Society were Ms. Lisa Lee and Tyker Gonzalez. During the meeting, Captain Jones expressed concerns over utilizing the Humane Society to enforce animal control laws. The current city ordinance only permits city employees, specifically the animal control officer and police officers to conduct enforcement. Other issues identified included who would oversee their activities and what liability the city held for their actions.

Ms. Lee and Ms. Gonzales said that there were other jurisdictions throughout North Carolina that were utilizing their local Humane Society to handle animal control matters; however, Ms. Gonzales was unable to identify any jurisdictions in North Carolina where the local Humane Society handled animal control matters. She did provide a list of jurisdictions where the Humane Society provided shelter services for the jurisdiction.

On August 2, 2018, Alderman Aster forward a copy of the agreement proposed by the Colonial Capital Humane Society for after-hours animal control services. The document was reviewed and several potential issues identified in addition to those expressed during the initial meeting:

 

  • The agreement did not provide a clear indication of how much after-hours coverage they would actually provide;
  • The type of animal control related training and equipment that would be required was not addressed; and
  • There was no language in the agreement to address how calls handled by Humane Society staff would be passed onto Police Department staff to ensure   a coordinated effort in animal control

 

 

City Attorney Scott Davis reviewed the proposed agreement and determined that an extensive amount of legal time and research would be necessary as this would be the first of its kind in the

 

state. He also questioned whether current statutes provide any support for a model like this. Based on the unfeasibility of outsourcing to the Human Society, Human Resources was contacted to have the part-time ACO position advertised publicly to hopefully identify a good candidate for the position.

Other Considerations

 

During the process of evaluating the Police Department” s procedures for handling animal control matters, staff identified some obstacles to providing adequate care for animals encountered during calls for service. Currently, there are very limited resources available to the Police Department to provide immediate care to an animal who is either injured or severely neglected. Essentially, the only resource available to the Police Department is the Craven/Pamlico Animal Shelter. If the incident occurs during shelter business hours (Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. though 5:30 p.m. and Saturday, 10:00 a.m. through 3:00 p.m.), the animal can be transported to the shelter and shelter personnel will coordinate emergency care for the animal. If an incident occurs after those hours, the only option for Police Department personnel is to transp01i the animal to the shelter and place it in a garage until shelter personnel arrive the next morning. This would not be appropriate for situations where an animal requires emergency care.

Staff is in the process of locating an emergency veterinarian facility where personnel can transport animals requiring emergency care when the shelter is closed. The Police Department will have to bear the cost of the emergency care, but can potentially recoup it through restitution for animal neglect/cruelty cases.

MEMORANDUM

Mayor Outlaw and Board of Aldermen Bradleigh Sceviour

Planner II

August 17, 2018

 

 

SUBJECT: Hold a Public Hearing to consider adoption of the proposed amendments to Sections 15-15 15-210, 15-214 and 15-216 of Appendix A of the City of New Bern Land Use Ordinance; “Basic definitions and interpretations” “Street classifications” “Development connectivity” and “Street width, sidewalk and drainage requirements in subdivisions”.

 

Background

The Board of Aldermen is requested to hold a public hearing on August 28, 2018 at 6:00 p.m., or as soon thereafter as possible, to consider a request by the City of New Bern to consider adoption of proposed amendments to Sections 15-15 15-210, 15-214 and 15-216 of the City of New Bern Land Use Ordinance; “Definitions” “Street classifications” “Development connectivity” and “Street width, sidewalk and drainage requirements in subdivisions”.

 

Over many years our street design standards have fallen out of line with best planning practices and with the standards required to properly operate the fire equipment in use in modem times by the city. These changes will bring our standards up to date and help to ensure safe and effective operation of city equipment.

 

At their May 1st, 2018 regular meeting the Planning and Zoning Board voted unanimously (7-0) to recommend approval to the Board of Aldermen.

 

Recommendation

To adopt proposed amendments to Sections 15-15, 15-210, 15-214 and 15-216 of the City of New Bern Land Use Ordinance; “Basic definitions and interpretations “Street classifications” “Development connectivity” and “Street width, sidewalk and drainage requirements in subdivisions”.

 

Please contact me at 639-7582 should you have questions or need additional information.

“Section 15-210. – Street classification.

 

  • A street whose sole function is to provide access to abutting properties. It serves or is designed to serve not more than nine dwelling units and is expected to or does handle up to 100 trips per day with-a minimum street width of 27 feet back of curb to back of curb.
  • A street whose sole function is to provide access to abutting properties. It serves or is designed to serve at least 10 but not more than 99 dwelling units and is expected to or does handle up to 1,000 trips per day with a minimum street width of 31 feet back of curb to back of curb.
  • Cul-de-sac. A street that terminates in a vehicular turnaround with a minimum street width of 31 feet back of curb to back of curb and not over 750 feet in total length. All cul-de-sacs shall have a minimum width of 31 feet back of curb to back of curb, and a cul-de-sac terminus diameter of 88 feet unless a smaller diameter is authorized pursuant to subsection (1) below. Longer cul-de-sac lengths may be authorized provided the director development services, or their respective designee determines that there is no practical option for providing street connectivity due to existing documented environmental features such as wetlands, natural water bodies, topographical features, environmental conditions or physical conditions such as property shape, property accessibility, or land use relationships. If the subdivision meets or exceeds the requirements of an A-5, R-15, or R-10 residential zone and the cul-de-sac has a total length not in excess of 150 feet, cul-de-sacs may have a minimum street width of 27 feet back of curb to back of curb, and a terminus diameter of 63

“Section 15-214. – Development connectivity.

 

  • Residential connectivity standards

 

  • The street system of a subdivision shall be coordinated with existing, proposed, and to the extent possible, anticipated streets outside the subdivision or outside the portion of a single tract that is being divided into lots (hereinafter, “surrounding street”) as provided in this section.

 

  • Collector streets shall intersect with surrounding collector or arterial streets at safe and convenient locations.

 

  • Subcollector, local, and minor residential streets shall connect with surrounding streets where necessary to permit the convenient movement of traffic between residential neighborhoods or to facilitate access to neighborhoods by emergency service vehicles or for other sufficient reasons, but connections shall not be permitted where the effect would be to encourage the use of such streets by substantial through

 

  • Wherever connections to anticipated or proposed surrounding streets are required by this section, the street right-of-way shall be extended to the property line of the subdivided property (or to the edge of the remaining undeveloped portion of a single tract) at the point where the connection to the anticipated or proposed street is expected. In addition, the department of public works may require temporary turnarounds to be constructed at the end of such streets pending their extension when such turnarounds appear necessary to facilitate the flow of traffic or to accommodate emergency vehicles. Notwithstanding the other provisions of this subsection, no temporary dead-end street in excess of 750 feet may be created unless no other practical alternative is available as determined by the director of development services or their

 

  • All residential developments requiring a departmental review by city staff and containing 150 lots or more shall provide a second point of street access from such development onto a surfaced public street. The second point of street access shall be a minimum of 1,000 feet from the first point of access as measured along the project boundary line.

 

  • Non-residential connectivity standards: In order to prevent added congestion along major roads from trips starting and ending in close proximity to each other, and in order to increase commerce and the ease of access to amenities for customers and residents alike, new development shall provide a high degree of connectivity to adjacent properties and streets. All

Development Connectivity Requirements

 

  1. New development shall utilize, whenever possible, all existing stub outs or internal drives abutting property lines on adjacent properties to create cross access between parcels.

 

  1. At least one (1) cross access point shall be required on each side of the new development, except those found to be applicable to subsection 8 below. When there are no existing cross access points on adjacent properties, whether developed or undeveloped, new drives and/or stub outs shall be created abutting the property lines of those adjacent

 

Page 4 of9

 

  • To the greatest extent possible, cross access points on opposite sides of a development shall be aligned with each other, parking lot travel lanes, internal drives and other cross access points on non-adjacent parcels on the same block so as to provide for a consistent lane of travel between parcels on a

 

  • Design and Dimensional Requirements. All stub outs, shared drives and other cross access features shall be developed according to all applicable parking standards with the exception of sections abutting undeveloped property lines, which do not require curbing. All cross access features shall be constructed with a minimum width of 24 feet, curb-to-curb, or two separate 12foot lanes to accommodate 2 lanes of

 

  • Parking Requirement Reductions. For each parcel they serve, each shared drive, stub-out or connected cross-access drive shall equate to a reduction of 3 required parking spaces each. All undivided, shared parking areas designated and reserved on plans shall equate to a reduction of 8 parking spaces, which may be applied in any fashion over the subject parcels. The total reduction in required parking spaces per this section shall not equal more than 25 percent of the required spaces per parcel. Nothing in this section shall prohibit additional parking exceeding the requirements of this

 

  • Landscape Buffer Relief. All paved areas within cross access points and shared drives shall be exempt from landscape buffer

 

  • Alterations and Exemptions. When environmental and development constraints exist on or adjacent to one or more areas of a new development site preventing the reasonable application of this section the director of development services, or his or her designated representative, at their discretion, may allow the relocation of one or more required cross access points. In extreme circumstances they may also allow the reduction in the required number of cross access points. The following circumstances may represent the need for an alteration to the required design or location of or exemption of one or more cross access points:

 

  • Adjacent properties in zoning districts which prohibit multi-family or non-residential development or existing adjacent single family residential

 

  1. Existing heavy industrial or other development that poses a safety or

security issue.

 

  • Significant natural features such as streams and wetlands, which would be harmful to disturb or pose an unreasonable economic

 

  1. Existing topographic features with slopes of greater than fifteen (15)

percent.

 

  1. Existing utility or other infrastructure obstructions which make future

access unreasonable.

 

 

 

Page 5 of9

 

  1. Where adjacent multi-family or non-residential structures are located closer to property lines than would allow for adequate two-way traffic circulation around such structures.

 

  • Other existing features determined by the Development Services Director to make connectivity requirements

 

  • Maintaining Connectivity. Unconnected stub outs may be used for parking or other permissible uses prior to cross access with new adjacent development. All open cross access points shall be kept clear to permit unimpeded two way traffic for the duration of the use of the

 

  • Recorded Easements. All developments with shared drives and cross access points shall document all recorded shared access easements on final plats prior to final approval.”

 

SECTION 3. That Section 15-216. “Street width, sidewalk, and drainage requirements in subdivisions.” of Article XIV. “Streets and Sidewalks” of Appendix A “Land Use” of the Code of Ordinance of the City of New Bern be and the same is hereby amended by deleting Section 15- 216 in its entirety and inserting in its stead the following:

 

“Section 15-216. – Street width, sidewalk, and drainage requirements in

subdivisions.

 

  • Street rights-of-way are designed and developed to serve several functions: (i) to carry motor vehicle traffic and, in some cases, allow on-street parking, (ii) to provide a safe and convenient passageway for pedestrian traffic; and (iii) to serve as an important link in the city’s drainage system. The board of aldermen finds that arterial streets and other major streets with no driveway access from abutting properties may be constructed without curb and gutter. Where curbs and gutters are not provided, the paving widths shall not be less than the following:

 

  1. Arterial streets: 33 feet.

 

  1. Collector streets: 27

 

Such streets as defined in this subsection shall have a minimum shoulder of SHE: feet on either side with drainage swales on either side, constructed in accordance with the specifications referenced in section 15-219.

 

  • Streets platted before March 5, 1968 may be constructed without curbs and gutters if they would be in keeping with streets previously constructed in that subdivision and, in the opinion of the director of public works and the city engineer, such streets can be constructed without causing significant safety, maintenance, or drainage problemsAll cross sections of streets and drainage shall be shown on plats. All streets which are constructed without curb and gutter shall meet the city’s standards for curbed and guttered streets as contained the City of New Bern Street Design Standards. Notwithstanding any other provision of this ordinance, all driveways

Page 6 of9

 

and driveway culverts must be installed to city standards by the developer or owner of the lot at his/her expense.

 

  • Streets not constructed according to the requirements of subsections (a) and (b) shall conform to the requirements of the City of New Bern Streets Design Standards. Sidewalks, when installed, shall be at least 5 feet in width and be separated a minimum of two feet from the back of the curb. Typical street sections illustrating streets with utility installation and with and without sidewalks are contained in the City of New Bern Street Design

  • Sidewalks are to be installed in all residential subdivisions on one side of the street at a minimum, and shall be constructed according to the specifications in the City of New Bern Street Design Standards, except that the director of public works may permit the installation of walkways constructed with other suitable materials when he concludes that:

 

  • Such walkways would serve the residents of the development as adequately as concrete sidewalks; and

 

  • Such walkways would be more environmentally desirable or more m keeping with the overall design of the

 

  • All developments requiring a departmental review by city staff shall be required to provide for the construction of sidewalks and other pedestrian amenities internally as well as along all adjacent portions of roadway designated for such improvements in accordance with adopted city plans and city standards when such amenities do not exist to the standard set forth in the plan. Such improvements shall adjoin any immediately adjacent pedestrian features and be installed so as to be easily adjoined to in the future. In the event that greenways or bike and pedestrian trails are required in accordance with adopted plans, the developer may provide to the

 

Page 7 of9

 

City a recorded easement of no less than 15 feet in width and in keeping with the general intent of adopted plans for the future construction of said features by the city.

 

  • In the absence of an adopted city plan that addresses the construction and location of sidewalks and other pedestrian amenities as identified in subsection 15-216(e), all developments, commercial and residential, requiring a departmental review by city staff shall be required to construct sidewalks and other pedestrian amenities along adjacent portions of roadway or internal drives and open spaces on-site when there are found to be pre-existing sidewalks and pedestrian amenities on adjoining properties or along road rights-of-way within 500 feet, except that the director of development services may waive this requirement when severe environmental constraints or other such conditions exist so as to make future connection unlikely or unreasonable. Such improvements shall be constructed consistent to the standard of adjacent pedestrian amenities or city standards, whichever are deemed to be greater, and with the intent that future pedestrian access between developments and along adjacent streets be

 

  • Whenever the board of aldermen finds that a means of pedestrian access is necessary from the subdivision to schools, parks, playgrounds, or other roads or facilities and that such access is not conveniently provided by sidewalks adjacent to the streets, the developer may be required to reserve an unobstructed easement of at least ten feet in width to provide such access.”

curb-cuts or driveway cuts, the street shall have two lanes divided or three lanes with a center lane.

fejffi Arterial. A major street in the city street system that serves as an avenue for the circulation of traffic into, out fofl, or around the city, aad-carries high volumes of traffic., and generally serves to connect multiple connector streets. All state-maintained streets within the city and their extensions into the extraterritorial area are arterial streets with a minimum street width of 44 feet back of curb to back of curb.

tBW Marginal access (service) street. A street that is parallel to and adjacent to an arterial street and that is designed to provide access to abutting properties so that these properties are somewhat sheltered from the effects of the through traffic on the arterial street and so that the flow of traffic on the arterial street is not impeded by direct driveway access from a large number of abutting properties with a minimum street width of 27 feet back of curb to back of curb.

(8) LimUed access street. A street developed to pro¥ide for the free and safe movement of traffic through a subdivision, 1Nhieh at the time of de¥elopment is platted showing all driveway or street connections, whether improved or reserved for future impro¥ement. In the

ease of residential subdi¥isions, no direct dr¥i e1.Yay access shall be pro¥ided on said street from

any residential property. In the ease of nonresidential subdi’lisions, direct dri•,,eway access shall be limited to one dri¥eway e’,’ef)’ 800 feet. The intent of the limited access street in a nonresidential application is to encourage the clustering tv.’o or more developments aroood a single dri¥01tYay to reduce the number of curb cuts on the said street. In no ease shall any additional access be granted to limited access streets v.’ithout the submission of plans for a change in the subdivision plat. A.II such changes are subject to the subdi’lision review process set forth in article IV. A.11 limited access streets shall have a minimum pavement ·.vidth of 20 feet with minimum shoulder v,zidths of six feet.

“Section 15-214. – Development connectivity.

 

  • Residential connectivity standards

 

  • The street system of a subdivision shall be coordinated with existing, proposed, and to the extent possible, anticipated streets outside the subdivision or outside the portion of a single tract that is being divided into lots (hereinafter, “surrounding street”) as provided in this section.

 

  • Collector streets shall intersect with surrounding collector or arterial streets at safe and convenient

 

  • Subcollector, local, and minor residential streets shall connect with surrounding streets where necessary to permit the convenient movement of traffic between residential neighborhoods or to facilitate access to neighborhoods by emergency service vehicles or for other sufficient reasons, but connections shall not be permitted where the effect would be to encourage the use of such streets by substantial through traffic.

 

  • Wherever connections to anticipated or proposed surrounding streets are required by this section, the street right-of-way shall be extended to the property line of the subdivided property (or to the edge of the remaining undeveloped portion of a single tract) at the point where the connection to the anticipated or proposed street is expected. In addition, the department of public works may require temporary turnarounds to be constructed at the end of such streets pending their extension when such turnarounds appear necessary to facilitate the flow of traffic or to accommodate emergency vehicles. Notwithstanding the other provisions of this subsection, no temporary dead-end street in excess of 750 feet may be created unless no other practical alternative is available as determined by the director of development services or their

 

  • All residential developments requiring a departmental review by city staff and containing 150 lots or more shall provide a second point of street access from such development onto a surfaced public street. Said The second point of street access shall be a minimum of 1000ft 1,000 feet from the first point of access as measured along the project boundary line.

 

  • Non-residential connectivity standards: In order to prevent added congestion along major roads from trips starting and ending in close proximity to each other, and in order to increase commerce and the ease of access to amenities for customers and residents alike, new development shall provide a high degree of connectivity to adjacent properties and streets. All development requiring departmental review shall be designed to allow for cross-access to adjacent compatible development in accordance with the following standards:

 

  • Connectivity to Adjacent Streets and Drives. All new development on parcels adjacent to two or more existing streets or drives shall provide for access to each to the greatest extent possible with existing City and State traffic

 

 

Page 4 of 11

 

  • Shared Drives. Shared driveway access between new developments or through agreement with existing development is encouraged to reduce the need for curb cuts and changes to medians and traffic signalization on major roads. When such drives are provided no additional cross access points shall be necessary between subject

 

  • Cross Access Drives. Cross access points shall be provided between all new developments and adjacent properties in order to provide traffic circulation parallel to adjacent arterial and collector roads. The following shall apply in development of cross access points:

the exception of sections abutting undeveloped property lines, which do not require curbing. All cross access features shall be constructed with a minimum width of twenty four (24-j feet, curb­ to-curb, or two separate PNelve (12t-foot lanes to accommodate twe–(2) lanes of traffic.

 

  • Parking Requirement Reductions. For each parcel they serve, each shared drive, stub-out or connected cross-access drive shall equate to a reduction three of (3) required parking spaces All,—undivided, shared parking areas designated and reserved on plans shall equate to a reduction of eight (8) parking spaces, which may be applied in any fashion over the subject parcels. The total reduction in required parking spaces per this section shall not equal more than t\v:enty five (25) percent of the required spaces per parcel. Nothing in this section shall prohibit additional parking exceeding the requirements of this ordinance.

 

  • Landscape Buffer Relief. All paved areas within cross access points and shared drives shall be exempt from landscape buffer

 

  • Alterations and Exemptions. When environmental and development constraints exist on or adjacent to one or more areas of a new development site preventing the reasonable application of this section the director of development services, or his or her designated representative, at their discretion, may allow the relocation of one or more required cross access points. In extreme circumstances they may also allow the reduction in the required number of cross access points. The following circumstances may represent the need for an alteration to the required design or location of or exemption of one or more cross access points:

 

  • Adjacent properties in zoning districts which prohibit multi-family or non-residential development or existing adjacent single family residential

Planner II

August 17th, 2018

 

 

SUBJECT: Call for a Public Hearing to consider adoption of the proposed amendments to Section 15-15 of the City of New Bern Land Use Ordinance; “Basic definitions and interpretations”.

 

Background

The Board of Aldermen is requested to hold a public hearing on August 28th, 2018 at 6:00 p.m., or as soon thereafter as possible, to consider a request by the City of New Bern to consider adoption of proposed amendments to Section 15-15 of the City of New Bern Land Use Ordinance; “Basic definitions and interpretations”.

 

These proposed edits are to clean up the residential definitions found in our basic definitions and interpretations section. With the last major overhaul of the Land Use Ordinance some errors in formatting lead to the retention of some older, now redundant, definitions for residential uses. Adopting the proposed ordinance changes will make sure there is no confusion in how different residential uses are defined within the Land Use Ordinance.

 

At their June 5th, 2018 regular meeting the Planning and Zoning Board voted unanimously (8-0) to recommend approval to the Board of Aldermen.

 

Recommendation

To adopt proposed amendments to Section 15-15 of the City of New Bern Land Use Ordinance; “Basic definitions and interpretations” as presesnted.

 

Please contact me at 639-7582 should you have questions or need additional information.

Matt Montanye, Director of Public Works.. .,J.1   gcji</f 1f’

Consider adopting a resolution approving updates to the City of New Bern Street Design Standards, dated August 2018.

 

 

Background Information:

ln January of 2011, the City of New Bern worked with local engineers, developers and other stakeholders to develop design standards for new streets being constructed within the City of New Bern. At that time the Public Warks Department was in the transition phase of hiring a new Director of Public Works and therefore all of the design requirements and inspections fell under the City Engineer.

 

At the August 28th Board of Aldermen meeting, you will also consider updates to the City of New Bern Land Use Ordinance which will incorporate several changes to the required street widths and right-of­ way widths that are noted in the Street Design Standards. Therefore, the Street Design Standards are being updated to align with the most updated version of the Land Use Ordinance and would transfer the design review and inspection responsibilities from the City Engineer to the Director of Public Works.

 

Recommendation:

 

The Public Works Department has been working with the City Engineer as well as the Development Services staff to ensure that the updated design standards are consistent with the Land Use Ordinance and that the best interest of the City are met. Therefore, it is recommended that the Board of Aldermen approve the attached updated version of the City of New Bern Street Design Standards.

 

RESOLUTION

 

WHEREAS, Section 15-219 of the City of New Bern Land Use Ordinance refers to Appendix C “City of New Bern Street Design Standards” dated January 2011; and

 

WHEREAS, since the issuance of standards in January 2011, changes have been made to the Land Use Ordinance with respect to street and right-of-way widths. The Street Design Standards are in need of revision to incorporate these changes as well as transfer the design review and inspection responsibilities from the City Engineer to the Director of Public Works.

 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT ORDAINED BY THE BOARD OF ALDERMEN OF THE CITY OF NEW BERN:

 

That the revision to Appendix C “Street Design Standards” of the Code of Ordinances dated August 2018, a copy of which is attached hereto and incorporated herein by reference, is hereby approved and adopted.

 

ADOPTED THIS 28th DAY OF AUGUST, 2018.

SECTION 3.0 DESIGNREQIBREMENTS

  • GENERAL

 

AL a minimum, all proposed street s shall be required lo meet the design requirements contained in this sections as well as all reqwremenls set forth by the NCDOT where applicable.

 

  • ASPHALT PAVEMENT

 

The asphalt pavement structure shall be de termined by U1e design engineer based on existing soil conditions and anticipa ted traffic loading. The following is an outline of the design methodology for pavement structure that is approved by the City of New Bern. An example using this design methodology is shown in Appendi.x-C:

 

  • Determine the Soil Support Value (SS V): The SSV shall be detem1ined using one of the following three methods:

 

  • Measure CBR of Soils and Calculat e SSV: The preferred method for dete1mining the The California Bearing Ratio (CBR) tesl shall be perfonned in accordance wi th AASHTO designation Tl 93. (latest edition) with the exception that if the required soil compaction density to be used during construction is known, only one specimen needs to be tested at the required density for each soil type.

 

Although the following minimum testing is required , a sufficient number of CBR tests s hall be performed to determine the consistency of the soil conditions in the areas to be paved:

 

  • Soil Borings: Perform soi l borings witb a ximwn s pacing of 500 linear feet and with at least three borings in each separate street and with at least one boring in soil type iden tified in the county soil survey map. Each boring shall extend at least 2 feet below the proposed finis hed su bgrade elevation.
  • CBR Tests : A CBR test shall be performed on each soil type which will be within two feet of the finished subgrade If off-site soils are to be used as fill, CBR test shall also be perfonned on each type which will occur in the upper 2 feel below pavement subgrade.

 

The average CBR value for the section under study shall t hen be substitu ted into the Equation 3. 1 to obtain the SSV:

 

 

5

revisedAugust 2018

 

 

 

 

 

SSV = 5.32 (logCBR) – 1.52 [Equation 3.1]

 

 

  • Measure the CBR of Soils to be used as FiU and C alculate the SSV: If the characteristics of the existing soils in the area to be paved result in an uneconomical pavement section based on the preceding method, the design engineer may opt to undercut the existing soils to a depth of at least 24 inches below the finished pavement subgrade elevations and backfill with select mate1ial. The SSV for the proposed pavement section is then determined by perfo rming a CBR test on each so il type used for The SSV shall be determined using the equation shown in Section 3.2.1.1.

 

  • Assign a SSV from Classificatio n of the County Soil Map: The soil types may be determined by using the applicable Soil Survey map prepared by the USDA – Natural Resources Conservation Services. The proposed project shall be located on the soils map to determine the so il type s in the area s to be A copy of the soil survey map with the project boundaries and the areas to be paved sha ll be su bmitted to the Director of Public Wo rks .

 

From the Engineering Index Properties Table of the soil survey, determine the AASHTO Classification of the soil types. From this information use the following table to assign the SSV. Using this method the entire paved area shalI be designed using the lowest SSV obtained along any portion of the paved area.

Example Pavement Design

 

 

 

 

 

 

APPENDIX C: Pavement Design Example

Design a pavement for a new residential development which will consist of I00 single family homes. All proposed streets will tenninatc within the development and will not be used to accommodate any loading other than the initial 100 homes. USGS Soil Maps identify all native so ils within the proposed streets to be classified as A-3.

Solution:

 

Step 1 Determinethe Soil Support Value (SSV):

Using Table 3.1 the assigned SSV for A-3 soils s hall be 3.5

SSV = 3.5

Step 2- Determine the Design Average Daily Traffic ( ADT ):

 

  • Using Table 2 the trips per day based on land use shall be 9.53 trips/day/unit for single rarnily homes.

ADT = 9.53 tripsldayl unit x JOO u 11il s = 951 trips/day

 

  • Tbe growth factor (G) shall be calculated for a 20 year design life using the approp1iate estimated yearly annual increase from Table 3. Using Table 3.3 for a subdivision street (fully developed) tbe estimated yearly increase is 0. 5%; so i = 0 .005 .

G =(1 + i/’ = (1 + 0.005) 20 = 1.10

  • Use Equation 3.2 to determine the design average daily

ADT = ADT + (G x AJ)T ) = 953 + (I.JO x 953) =1,001 trips/day

2                                2

 

Step 3 – Determine the Truck Factor ( N ):

Using Table 3.4 the approximate truck factor ( N ) is 16.

( N) = 16

Step 4 Determine the Structural Number (SN):

 

Using Equation 3.4 determine the s tructural number (SN) by substituting known values.

 

SN = 2.41 (N )°-1 5 1      = 2.41(16)°-w = 2.32

(J.14/SI’            (J.14)3-5

 

 

 

 

 

A.P-C I

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 5 – Select PavementSeccion Required to Obtain the Structural Number:

 

Using Tab l.e 3.6 determine the structural coefficients for the desired pavernenl components and multip ly tbe by the tl1ic kness of each component to oblaio the s tructural number. Use trial and error to detennine a pavement structure that meets the required Structural Nwnber (SN).

D ES I GN REQUIREMENTS

 

  • GENERAL

 

At a minimum, all proposed streets shall be requu:ed to meet the design requirements contained in this sections as well as all requirements set forth by the NCDOT where applicable.

 

  • ASPHALT PAVEMENT

 

The asphalt pavement structure shall be determined by the design engineer based on existing soil conditions and anticipated traffic loading. The following is an outline of the design methodology for pavement structure that is approved by the City of New Bern. An example using this design methodology is shown in Appendix-C:

 

  • Determine the Soil Support Value (SSV): The SSV shall be determined using one of the following three methods:

 

  • Measure CBR of Soils and Calculate SSV: The preferred method for determining the The California Bearing Ratio (CBR) test shall be perfo1med in accordance with AASHTO designation Tl93, (latest edition) with the exception that if the required soil compaction density to be used during construction is known, only one specimen needs to be tested al the required density for each soil type.

 

Although the following minimum testing is required, a sufficient number of CBR tests shall be performed to determine the consistency of the soil conditions in the areas to be paved:

 

  • Soil Borings: Perform soil borings with a maximum spacing of 500 linear feet and with at least three borings in each separate street and with at least one boring in soil type identified in the county soil survey Each boring shall extend at least 2 feet below the proposed finished subgrade elevation.
  • CBR Tests: A CBR test shalJ be performed on each soil type which will be

within two feet of the finished subgradc elevation. If off-site soils are to be

J.cemaJ’j’ WU revised Janumy 20188emembe · 1014

 

 

 

 

 

 

used as fill, CBR test shall also be performed on each type which will occur in the upper 2 feet below pavement subgrade.

 

The average CBR value for the section under study shall then be substituted into the Equation 3.1 to obtain the SSV:

 

SSV= 5.32 (logCBR) – 1.52 [Equation 3.1]

 

  • Measure the CBR of Soils to be used as Fill and Calculate the SSV: If the characteristics of the existing soils in the area to be paved result in an uneconomical pavement section based on the precerung method, the design engineer may opt to undercut the existing soils to a depth of at least 24 inches below the finished pavement subgrade elevations and backfill with select material. The SSV for the proposed pavement section is then dete1mined by perfo1ming a CBR test on each soil type used for backfilling. The SSV shall be determined using the equation shown in Section 2.1.1.

 

  • Assign a SSV from Classification of the County Soil Map: The soil types may be determined by using the applicable Soil Survey map prepared by the USDA – Natural Resources Conservation The proposed project shall be localed on the soils map to determine the soil types in the areas to be paved. A copy of the soil survey map with the project boundaries and the areas to be paved shall be submitted to the City EngineerDirector of Public Works .

 

From the Engineering Index Prope1ties Table of the soil survey, determine the AASHTO Classification of the soil types. From this infmmation use the following table to assign the SSV. Using this method the entire paved area shall be designed using the lowest SSV obtained along any portion of the paved area.

For proposed residential development Table 3.2 shall be used to determine the ( ADT ).

Using this table, multiply the trips per day per unit by the total number of units based on the proposed full development of the street. For non-residential development the design engineer shall use the latest edition of the Institute of Traffic Engineer’ s “Trip

Generation” to determine the fully develo ped ( ADT ).

 

Table 3.2

 

The next step in determining the ( ADT) is to determine the traffic growth factor (G).

The traffic growth factor accounts for the rate of increase in traffic on the proposed street. The traffic growth factor (G) shall be calculated using Equation 3.3:

G = (1 + 1)11       [ E quation 3.3)

i = Fractional rate of growth, from Table 3.3

  • Determine the Structural Number (SN): the structural number is an abstract number that reflects the structural strength of the pavement section required for soil suppor t and traffic loading. Equation 3.4 shall be used to calculate the structural number (SN) using the soil support value (SSV) determined in Section 2.l and the trnck factor determined in Section 3.2.3.

APPENDIX-C

Example Pavement Design

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

APPENDIX C: Pavement Design Example

Design a pavement for a new residential development which will consist of 100 single family homes. All proposed streets will terminate within the development and will not be used to accommodate any loading other than the initial 100 homes. USGS Soil Maps identify all native soils within the proposed streets to be classifie d as A-3.

Solution:

 

Step 1 Determine the Soil Suppo rt Value (SSV):

Using Table 3.1 the assigned SSV for A-3 soils shall be 3.5

SSV = 3.5

Step 2 Determinethe Design Average Daily Traffic ( ADT ):

 

  • Using Tab le 2 the trips per day based on land use shall be 9.53 trips/day/unit for single family homes.

ADT = 9.53 tripsldttyl zm it x JOO ,mil s = 953 trips/day

 

  • The growth factor (G) shall be calculated for a 20 year design life using the appropriate estimated yearly annual increase from Table 3. Using Table 3.3 for a subdivision street (fully developed) the estimated yearly increase is 0.5%; so i = 0.005.

G =(1 + i)” = (1 + 0.005) 20 =1.10

  • Use Equation 2 to detennine the design average daily traffic.

ADT = ADT + (G x ADT) = 953 + (1.10 x 953 ) = 1 ,001 trips/day

2                              2

 

Step 3 Dete1mine the T1u ck Factor ( N ):

Using Table 3.4 the approximate trnck factor ( N) is 16.

( N ) = 16

Step 4 Determine the Strnctural Number {SM:

 

Using Equation 3.4 determine the stmctural number (SN) by subs tituting known values.

 

SN = 2.41 (N )°-151 = 2.41(16 }°·151 =2.32

(J.14/ SV           (J. 14/ 5

 

 

 

 

AP-CI

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 5 Select Pavement Section Required to Obtain the Structural Number:

 

Using Table 3.6 determine the strnctural coefficients for the desired pavement components and multiply the by the thickness of each component to obtain the structural number. Use trial and en·or to dete1mine a pavement strncture that meets the required Structural Number (SN).

On behalf of the applicant government entity named below, and in support of its application, I certify to the Office of Justice Programs (“OJP”), U.S. Department of Justice (“USDOJ”), that all of the following are true and correct:

 

  • I am the chief legal officer of the State or local government of which the applicant entity named below is a part (“the jurisdiction”), and I have the authority to make this certification on behalf of the jurisdiction and the applicant entity (that is, the entity applying directly to OJP). I understand that OJP will rely upon this certification as a material representation in any decision to make an award to the
  • I have carefully reviewed 8 U.S.C. § 1373(a) & (b), and 1644, including the prohibitions on certain actions by State and local government entities, -agencies, and -officials regarding information regarding citizenship and immigration status. I also have reviewed the provisions set out at (or referenced in) 8 U.S.C. § 1551 note (“Abolition … and Transfer of Functions”), pursuant to which references to the “Immigration and Naturalization Service” in 8 U.S.C. §§ 1373 & 1644 are to be read, as a legal matter, as references to particular components of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
  • I (and also the applicant entity) understand that the U.S. Department of Justice will require States and local governments (and agencies or other entities thereof) to comply with 8 U.S.C. § 1373 & 1644, with respect to any “program or activity” funded in whole or in part with the federal financial assistance provided through the FY 2018 OJP program under which this certification is being submitted (the “FY 2018 OJP Program” identified below), specifically including any such “program or activity” of a governmental entity or -agency that is a subrecipient (at any tier) of funds under the FY 2018 OJP Program.
  • I (and also the applicant entity) understand that, for purposes of this certification, “program or activity” means what it means under title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (see 42 U.S.C. 2000d-4a), and that terms used in this certification that are defined in 8 U.S.C. § 1101 mean what they mean under that section 1101, except that the term “State” also shall include American Samoa (cf. 34 U.S.C. § 10251(a)(2)). Also, I understand that, for purposes of this certification, neither a “public” institution of higher education (i.e., one that is owned, controlled, or directly funded by a State or local government) nor an Indian tribe is considered a State or local government entity or -agency.
  • I have conducted (or caused to be conducted for me) a diligent inquiry and review concerning the following (which, for the specific purpose of paragraph 5, shall not be understood to include any “program or activity” of any subrecipient at any tier):

RE: Purchase of Office Furniture for Multi•JurisdictionalTask•Force Program

 

The New Bern Police Department will utilize FY 2018 JAG funds to purchaseoffice equipment to renovate its current off·site facility by restructuring and upgrading office space and workstations to accommodate the expansion of Officers assigned to the multi·jurisdlctional narcotics task·force. The purpose of this proposal is to provide a scope of work, schedule, and costs associated with the proposed project under this grant application.

Bacl<ground

The Craven County Sheriff’s Office and the City of New Bern Police Department joined forces in 2013 to form the Coastal Narcotic Enforcement Team. The Coastal Narcotic Enforcement Team (CNET) is a multi•jurisdictional narcotics task. force comprised of sworn law enforcement detectives and investigators from Craven, Carteret, and Pamlico Counties. The full•t ime detectives and investigators assigned to the task•force along with other supporting agencies ope rate through active mutual aid

agreements between the participating agencies for the purpose of reducing drug trafficking within these Eastern North Carolina jurisdictions .

Rgure 1 Photograph of the current workstations utilized by the multi-jurisd,ctianal narcotics task-farce at the Wind Hill Court facility.

 

 

The mu lti•jurisdict ional narcoticstask force consists of two (2) full -time agencies and six (6) supporting agencies who utilize the jointly shared facility to reduce the trafficking of narcotics and other drugs within the jurisdictions of Craven, Carteret, and Pamlico counties. The City of New Bern Police Department has recently added three (3) new detectives, one of which is assigned to the US M arshal’s Fugitive Task. force; and the Craven County Sheriff’s office is currently in the process of assigning two (2) additional detectives to the multi-jurisdictional narcotics task-force program.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Scope of Work

 

As outlined in the mutual aid agreement signed by the Sheriff’s Office and the City of New Bern Police Department it is their responsibility to provide the facility and office space, and to jointly share in the accounting obligations and expenditures of funds necessary run the facility,

 

The current arrangement and of workstations is an inefficient use of space, provides no privacy, and the equipment is dilapidated and beyond its usefulness (Figure 1).

 

Figure 2 Proposed drawing 11/ustrotmq how the equipment will beutilized for the restructuringof the workstations at the foci/lty located at Wind Hill Court.

 

 

Therefore, the Craven County Sheriff ‘ s Office and New Bern Police Department will utilize FY 2018 JAG funds to purchase materials to restructure and upgrade (Figure 2) its current off-site facility located on Wind Hill Court for the purpose of accommodating the expansion of newly assigned det ectives and investigators.

 

 

Schedule

 

Due to the small scale of this proposed project, the anticipated completion date is between three (3) and six (6) months after award.

 

 

Costs

 

The estimated project cost is $14,375 (Table 1) and the associated costs for the expansion project will be jointly shared between Craven County Sheriff’s Office and the City of New Bern Police Department. The awarded grant funds will be utilized towards the purchase of the necessary materials and equipment for eleven (11) personnel workstations to offset the total project costs.

Mayor Outlaw and the Board of Alderman Toussaint E. Summers, Jr., Chief of Police

Approval for Two Additional School Resource Officers August 16, 2018

Toussaint E. Summers, Jr.

Chief of Police

 

 

The New Bern Police Department is seeking approval to proceed with the implementation of two additional School Resource Officers. We have been advised that the Craven County Board of Education has approved $49,500 for each of the four full-time School Resource Officers and that two of the funded positions fall within the city limits: JT Barber Elementary School and Oaks Road Academy/Aspire. These aforementioned elementary schools have been identified as having students with limited positive interaction with police officers. Assigning School Resource Officers would facilitate a safe learning environment, encourage positive relationships with law enforcement and reduce the number of violent acts within our schools. If approved, the newly inducted School Resource Officers would promote anti-bullying initiatives, lead drug and crime prevention programs, provide a safe and secure campus for both the students and the teaching staff during regular school hours and at after-school activities.

 

The City will need to increase the number of officers in the Police Department to accommodate this request. The 2 School Resources Officer will be staffed by existing Master Police Officers. The Board of Education will be reimbursing the City $99,000 for the 2 SROs. The table below provides a breakdown of the approximate current annual cost of 2 MPOs, the portion of that cost allocated to the SRO program, and the impact this request will have on the FYI 9 budget. The annual cost of vehicles, uniforms and equipment are 20% of their purchase price.

In order to reduce the budgetary impact of having two additional SRO positions, we will hire 2 additional Police Officer positions and retain 2 vehicles scheduled for replacement this current year.

 

In light of heightened school violence nationwide, it is recommended that the Board of Aldermen consider approving the above request for two additional School Resource Officers within two of the City’s most disadvantaged elementary schools.
