The Town Council will get a report Monday, Feb. 8, on the town’s ice storm response, talk about changes to downtown neighborhoods and discuss a possible redevelopment deal for Fire Station No. 2.
The meeting begins at 7 p.m. in the Town Hall Council Chamber, 405 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.
Neighborhood Conservation District amendments for Northside and Pine Knolls were proposed partially in response to state changes in how single-family homes and duplexes can be regulated. Other changes are aimed at the town’s affordable housing goals.
Council members also will consider a proposed redevelopment of the Hamilton Road fire station. The deal, if approved, would transfer the land to East West Partners to build a new, 10,106-square-foot fire station and a 53,342-square-foot commercial office building.
The developer would pay up to $1.75 million to build the fire station – expected to cost $3 million – leasing it back to the town for up to 500 years.
Orange County Emergency Services also has signaled a desire to co-locate the Medic 3 ambulance and crew at the fire station, officials said. The crew now keeps the ambulance in a parking lot near campus.
