Items of interest on the agenda included:
- An agreement with the NCDOT to construct a right turn lane on westbound Oleander Drive at the intersection of South College Road and Oleander Drive. The NCDOT would like to add the lane as part of a resurfacing project on South College Road between Shipyard and Wilshire boulevards. There is no cost to the city for the project.
- Council gave tentative funding approval for repairs to the Water Street parking deck, but they will have to give final approval at their Jan. 15 meeting before the repairs can move forward. The repairs would provide for use of the deck for 3-5 years while the city evaluates long-term options for redevelopment of the property. Funding for this project was previously approved and budgeted, but final approval next week would allow specific repairs that have now been identified to move forward.
Watch the meeting.
