Crowell, Clerk to the Board This ordinance shall be effective upon its adoption. BA 22-004 The Department of Social Services was awarded $34,112 on August 9, 2021. The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act provides emergency funding to respond to COVID-19. It is designed to support child welfare agencies in the prevention, preparation and response to the needs of children and families impacted by the child welfare system and the coronavirus pandemic. North Carolina was awarded these supplemental funds by Administration for Children and Families (ACF). Each county social services agency was awarded a portion of this supplemental funding based on the population of children in foster care. These funds must be used to ensure the safety, permanency, and wellbeing of children and families involved in child welfare during the coronavirus pandemic. New Hanover County Department of Health and Human Services will focus purchasing efforts to: enhance agency telecommunications hardware, software and service infrastructure to support telework and remote participation by agency employees in caseworker visits, child and family meetings, court hearings and access to other needed services; purchase Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for child welfare workers in efforts to minimize exposure when conducting visits; provide assistance to families (purchasing food or arranging for food delivery, obtaining household supplies, or paying utilities and rent) when a family is unable to access other pandemic-related assistance. The agency will ensure that assistance is not duplicative of any other aid provided by the CARES Act or other COVID-19 legislation; and identify, secure, staff and monitor emergency placements for children in foster care who have been exposed to the coronavirus. Funds can be used to replace county only expenditures not claimed for reimbursement to prevent, prepare for, and respond to COVID-19 prior to the effective date of the award, beginning January 20, 2020. The use of county allocated funds must be for expenses obligated or paid by September 30, 2021. There is no county match.

Board of Commissioners - September 7, 2021 ITEM: 6 Updated Aug. 27, 2021 American Rescue Plan Overview New Hanover County will receive $45,543,632 from the American Rescue Plan, which was signed into law by President Biden on March 11. The funds must be obligated by Dec. 31, 2024, and New Hanover County has developed a draft framework to utilize these funds over the next three years to strengthen our community. The Board of Commissioners approved the initial framework at its April 5 board meeting. This framework reflects an updated staff recommendation following the May 11 release of Treasury’s Rules and Guidance for the funds. Broadband Connectivity - $5,760,000 The Congressional language permits using the funds for broadband purposes , so the county proposes the following: Broadband Access: A program to connect around 8,000 homes to broadband, focusing on households with children who qualify for Medicaid or Food and Nutrition benefits, for two years in order to increase access and affordability to reliable high-speed internet for students and families. ($5,760,000) Business and Employment Assistance - $4,100,000 The legislation allows for assistance to businesses and nonprofits. New Hanover County’s leisure and hospitality sectors were particularly hard hit during the pandemic and the county proposes using funds for the following: Business Assistance: Business grants, scaled in size based on a business’ number of employees, focused on the retail, service, leisure and hospitality sectors and child care facilities. ($2,500,000) Nonprofit Assistance: Grants to nonprofits that have been negatively impacted and were not able to continue operations at some point during the pandemic. ($700,000) Job Training: Two jobs programs, to be administered in partnership with Step Up Wilmington, to include a six-week paid job training and placement program for up to 200 people with a particular focus on the local film industry, and a six-month paid internship and job placement f or an additional 10 to 20 people to develop long-term skills and employment. Includes administrative expenses equaling 5 percent of the programs’ cost. ($900,000) Housing - $3,800,800 The legislation allows assistance to households who have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, so the county proposes to use funds for the following: Mortgage Assistance: Provide assistance to homeowners who are in arrears on mortgages because of impacts from COVID-19. This would be in addition to the $7 million Emergency Rental Assistance Program that is currently underway through the county. ($3,000,000) Workforce Rental Housing Assistance: A pilot project to provide residents who qualify under workforce housing guidelines – 60 percent to 120 percent of area median income – by providing direct payments to landlords. ($600,000) Board of Commissioners - September 7, 2021 ITEM: 6 - 1 - 1 Updated Aug. 27, 2021 Housing Specialist (NEW): A position at the Department of Social Services to provide counseling around housing. ($100,800) Emergency Rental Assistance Program Manager (NEW): A position at the Department of Social Services to manage the ERAP program. ($100,000) Physical and Mental Health - $6,799,506 The well-being and mental health of children, students and seniors suffered during the pandemic and the legislation allows local governments to use funds to mitigate the public health impact of the pandemic. The county proposes to use funds as outlined below to help address these issues and provide long-term positive impacts. With the exception of the infant and toddler initiatives, the intention is to fold the services into the county’s continuation budget beginning in Fiscal Year 2023-24. Mental Health in Schools: Ensure access at each public school to mental health counselors through the county’s Health and Human Services Department.

($100,000) Infrastructure and Emergency Management - $11,336,567 Congressional language explicitly allows the American Rescue Plan allocations for water and sewer projects. Given Emergency Management’s role in the pandemic, it appears eligible for funding as well. The county proposes to use funds in the following ways: Board of Commissioners - September 7, 2021 ITEM: 6 - 1 - 2 Updated Aug. 27, 2021 Stormwater Services: Cover and pay for stormwater utility costs, not including debt and reserve funds, in the unincorporated county for fiscal year 2021-22.

($64,000) Essential County Employees - $7,040,040 The American Rescue Plan allows for “premium pay” for public employees who provided essential government services and for testing of the coronavirus, so the county is proposing to use funds in the following ways: Employee Pay:  Provide employee premium pay in fixed dollar amounts based on an employee’s length of service during the pandemic and full- or part-time status. This is in recognition of county staff who have remained on the frontlines, continued important public services, and ensured residents received the help they needed at a time when it was critical.

($331,017) Testing (NEW):  To provide weekly tests for unvaccinated employees ($1,456,000) Reserve and Administration - $6,706,719 The legislation appears to allow the county to set aside funds as a reserve for potential future allowable expenses as well as funds to administer and provide reports as needed on the use of the funds. The county proposes the following reserve funds for this purpose:  A reserve fund for future needs. ($4,436,719)  A reserve fund for administration and reporting, established at 5 percent of the total amount received.

T he R M F-M, Residen-al Mul-family Moderate Density D istrict provides for lands that accommodate mo derate density single-fa mily and mul--fa mily development. T he intent o f the R MF-M district is to f unc-o n as a transi-o nal district between intensive nonresiden-al development and higher-density residen-al areas. T he district is intended to pro vide a reaso nable range of choice, type, and loca -o n of ho using units. As c urrently zoned the subject site would be permi7ed up to 4 dwelling units at 2.5 du/ac under the performance residen-al sta ndards. A development o f this scale is es-ma ted to generate fewer than 10 trips during the peak ho urs (8 A M/5 P M). T he pro posed 16- unit development equates to an overall density of 10.7 du/ac and is es-mated to generate about 10 trips during the peak hours (8 A M/12 P M), f o r an increase of abo ut 7 trips in the P M peak hour. T he es-mated traffic generated from the site is under the 100 peak hour thresho ld that triggers the ordina nce requirement for a Traffic I mpact Analysis. B ased o n the current general student genera-on rate, staff would es-ma te that the increase in ho mes would result in appro ximately 3 addi-o nal students than would be generated under current zoning. T he general student genera-on rate pro vides only a n es-mate of an-cipated student yield as different fo rms o f housing at different pric e po ints yield different numbers o f students. O ver the past f o ur years, staff has also seen a decline in the number o f students generated by new develo pment.

This is a public hearing. We will hear a presentation from staff. Then the applicant and any opponents will each be allowed 15 minutes for their presentation and an additional 5 minutes for rebuttal. 2. Conduct Hearing, as follows: a. Staff presentation b. Applicant’s presentation (up to 15 minutes) c. Opponent’s presentation (up to 15 minutes) d. Applicant’s rebuttal (up to 5 minutes) e. Opponent’s rebuttal (up to 5 minutes) 3. Close the public hearing 4. Board discussion 5. Vote on the application. The motion should include a statement saying how the change is, or is not, consistent with the land use plan and why approval or denial of the rezoning request is reasonable and in the public interest. Example Motion for Approval I move to APPROVE the proposed rezoning to a (CZD) RMF-M district. I find it to be CONSISTENT with the purposes and intent of the Comprehensive Plan because the project provides for the types of uses and density recommended in the Community Mixed Use place type, the townhomes will provide a transition between a major corridor and existing low- density housing, and because the proposal will increase the range of housing in the area. I also find APPROVAL of the rezoning request is reasonable and in the public interest because the proposal supports the County’s goals of providing for a range of housing types and opportunities for households of different sizes and income levels. [Optional] Note any conditions to be added to the district. Example Motion for Denial I move to DENY the proposed rezoning to a (CZD) RMF-M district. While I find it to be CONSISTENT with the purposes and intent of the Comprehensive Plan because the project provides for the types of uses recommended in the Community Mixed Use place type, the residential densities are in-line with those recommended for the property, and the project will provide an appropriate transition between a major corridor and existing low-density housing. I find DENIAL of the rezoning request is reasonable and in the public interest because the proposal is not consistent with the desired character of the surrounding community and the density will adversely impact the adjacent neighborhoods.

The units will be located in four buildings containing four units each. • Primary access to the development will be provided on Carolina Beach Road, a principal arterial roadway. • The proposal would include about 0.34 acres of open space, which exceeds the County’s requirement of providing 20% open space. ZONING CONSIDERATIONS • The R-15 district in this area was established in 1971. The purpose of the R-15 district is to provide lands that accommodate very low to low density residential development that can serve as a transition between very low-density residential development patterns and smaller lot, more dense residential areas of the County. • Under the County’s performance residential standards, the subject parcel would be permitted up to 4 dwelling units at a density of 2.5 du/ac. The proposed 16 units equate to an overall density of 10.7 du/ac. • The purpose of the RMF-M, Residential Multifamily Moderate Density District is to provide lands that accommodate moderate density single-family and multi-family development. The intent of the RMF-M district is to function as a transitional district between intensive nonresidential development and higher-density residential areas. The districts is intended to provide a reasonable range of choice, type, and location of housing units. Board of Commissioners - September 7, 2021 ITEM: 8 - 2 - 3 Z21-10 Staff Report BOC 9.7.2021 Page 4 of 15 • The site is situated between low-density residential to the west, a principal arterial roadway to the east, and undeveloped property to the north and south. • The proposal provides the required transitional buffer to the adjacent single-family zoning north, south, and west of the request. AREA SUBDIVISIONS UNDER DEVELOPMENT Board of Commissioners - September 7, 2021 ITEM: 8 - 2 - 4 Z21-10 Staff Report BOC 9.7.2021 Page 5 of 15 TRANSPORTATION • Primary access to the development will be from Carolina Beach Road, an NCDOT maintained principal arterial. • As currently zoned the subject site would be permitted up to 4 dwelling units at 2.5 du/ac under the performance residential standards. A development of this scale is estimated to generate fewer than 10 trips during the peak hours (8 AM/5 PM). The proposed development is estimated to generate about 10 trips during the peak hours (8 AM/12 PM), for an increase of about 7 trips in the PM peak hour. The estimated traffic generated from the site is under the 100 peak hour threshold that triggers the ordinance requirement for a Traffic Impact Analysis. • Traffic improvements may be evaluated during the driveway permit application. A driveway permit will be required to be obtained from NCDOT prior to the issuance of any building permits.

The notable improvements consisted of: Provide a southbound, left-turn lane on River Road with 50-feet of storage, 50 feet of full-width deceleration and appropriate taper at SR 1576 (River Road) and The Cape Boulevard. Nearby Proposed Developments included within the TIA: No approved developments were considered in this analysis. Development Status: Complete ENVIRONMENTAL • The property does not contain any Special Flood Hazard Areas or Natural Heritage Areas. • The property is within the Telfairs Creek watershed. • Per the Classification of Soils in New Hanover County for Septic Tank Suitability, soils on the property consist of Class I (slight limitation). However, the site is expected to be served by AQUA America when developed. OTHER CONSIDERATIONS SCHOOLS • Students living in the proposed development would be assigned to Carolina Beach Elementary, Murray Middle, and Ashley High Schools. Students may apply to attend public magnet, year-round elementary, or specialty high schools. • Under the current zoning, 3 dwelling units would be permitted by right. A maximum of 16 units could be developed under the proposed rezoning. • Based on the current general student generation rate*, the increase in homes would result in approximately 3 additional students than would be generated under current zoning. • The general student generation rate provides only an estimate of anticipated student yield as different forms of housing at different price points yield different numbers of students. Over the past four years, staff has also seen a decline in the number of students generated Board of Commissioners - September 7, 2021 ITEM: 8 - 2 - 8 Z21-10 Staff Report BOC 9.7.2021 Page 9 of 15 by new development. Student numbers remained relatively stable between 2015 and 2020 (excepting the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic), while 14,500 new residential units were permitted across the county. In addition, the student population is anticipated to only grow by approximately 1,300 students over the next 10 years based on the recent New Hanover County Schools Facility Needs Study. Development Type Intensity Estimated Student Yield (current general student generation rate)* Existing Development Undeveloped Approximate**Total: 0 (0 elementary, 0 middle, 0 high Typical Development under Current R-15 Zoning 3 residential units Approximate**Total: 1 (0 elementary, 0 middle, 0 high) Proposed (CZD) RMF-M Zoning 16 residential units Approximate**Total: 4 (1 elementary, 1 middle, 1 high) *The current general student generation rate was calculated by dividing the projected New Hanover County public school student enrollment for the 2021-2022 school year by the number of dwelling units in the county. Currently, there are an average of 0.22 public school students (0.09 for elementary, 0.05 for middle, and 0.08 for high) generated per dwelling unit across New Hanover County. These numbers are updated annually and include students attending out-of-district specialty schools, such as year-round elementary schools, Isaac Bear, and SeaTech. **Because the student generation rate often results in fractional numbers, all approximate student generation yields with a fraction of 0.5 or higher are rounded up to a whole number and yields with a fracti on of less than 0.5 are rounded down. This may result in student numbers at the elementary, middle, and high school levels not equaling the approximate total. • Given the size of the proposed development, it may have a build-out date within 5 years, so staff has outlined existing school capacity to provide a general impact of the potential impact on public schools. These numbers do not reflect any future capacity upgrades that may occur over the next five years or trends in student population changes. Board of Commissioners - September 7, 2021 ITEM: 8 - 2 - 9 Z21-10 Staff Report BOC 9.7.2021 Page 10 of 15 School Enrollment* and Capacity** (2021-2022 School Year) * Enrollment is based on the New Hanover County Schools enrollment that was projected for the 2021-2022 school year. **Capacity calculations were determined based on the projected capacities for the 2021 -2022 school year, and funded or planned capacity upgrades were those included in the Facility Need s Study presented by New Hanover County Schools to the Board of Education in January 2021. This information does not take into account flexible scheduling that may be available in high school settings, which can reduce the portion of the student body on c ampus at any one time. • The recent facility needs survey that has been prepared by Schools staff indicates that, based on NC Department of Public Instruction (DPI) student growth projections and school capacity data, planned facility upgrades, combined with changes to student enrollment patterns, will result in adequate capacity district wide over the next five years if facility upgrades are funded. NEW HANOVER COUNTY STRATEGIC PLAN • One of the goals of the New Hanover County Strategic Plan for 2018-2023 is to encourage the development of complete communities in the unincorporated county by increasing housing diversity and access to basic goods and services. • The proposed RMF-M CZD zoning district would allow for an increase in housing diversity and would allow those residents to utilize existing goods and services within one mile of the subject property. • The predominant housing type in the area is single family detached at 80%. Under the proposed RMF-M district the site would allow for single family attached (townhomes) and increase housing type diversity by reducing the percentage of single family detached (80% to 79%) and increasing the percentage of single family attached residences (9.5% to 10.5%). • The subject property is located in the Snows Cut community area, where 37% of residents currently live within one-mile of a community facility (public park, school, library etc.). The proposed RMF-M district would increase the number of residences within one-mile of a community facility (36.5% to 37%).

The property is located between low density residential development and vacant property, prime for moderate to high residential density and mixed use Board of Commissioners - September 7, 2021 ITEM: 8 - 2 - 12 Z21-10 Staff Report BOC 9.7.2021 Page 13 of 15 projects. The project also takes direct access off Carolina Beach Road, a principal arterial roadway. 2016 COMPREHENSIVE PLAN The New Hanover County Future Land Use Map provides a general representation of the vision for New Hanover County’s future land use, as designated by place types describing the character and function of the different types of development that make up the community. These place types are intended to identify general areas for particular development patterns and should not be interpreted as being parcel specific. Future Land Use Map Place Type Community Mixed Use Place Type Description Focuses on small-scale, compact, mixed use development patterns that serve all modes of travel and act as an attractor for county residents and visitors. Types of appropriate uses include office, retail, mixed use, recreational, commercial, institutional, and multi-family and single-family residential. Board of Commissioners - September 7, 2021 ITEM: 8 - 2 - 13 Z21-10 Staff Report BOC 9.7.2021 Page 14 of 15 Analysis The proposed (CZD) RMF-M development is located between low-density residential, a principal arterial roadway, and undeveloped property. In general, the Comprehensive Plan designates areas along roadways for higher residential densities and a mix of uses. The proposed (CZD) RMF-M zoning would provide a transition in density and intensity between future Community Mixed Use development along Carolina Beach Road and the established single-family neighborhood, west of the subject site. Providing options for alternative housing types in direct relationship to single-family detached development is one of the stated intents for this district. The proposal is also in line with the preferred density range for the Community Mixed Use place type. The Community Mixed Use place type envisions moderate density residential development up to 15 dwelling units per acre. The applicant is proposing 16 units, for an overall density of 10.7 units per acre. Consistency Recommendation The proposed (CZD) RMF-M, Conditional Residential Multifamily Moderate Density District rezoning is generally CONSISTENT with the intent of the 2016 Comprehensive Plan because this zoning district is intended to provide alternative housing types to single-family detached development, the project provides for the types and mixture of uses recommended in the Community Mixed Use place type, the townhomes will provide a transition between a major corridor and exiting low density housing, and because the proposal will increase the range of housing types in the area. PLANNING BOARD RECOMMENDATION The Planning Board considered this application at their August 5, 2021, meeting. At the meeting, two residents spoke in opposition to the request, citing concerns of drainage, density, and traffic. The Planning Board recommended approval of the application (5-0). • The Planning Board found the application to be CONSISTENT with the purposes and intent of the Comprehensive Plan because the project provides for the types and mixture of uses recommended in the Community Mixed Use place type, the townhomes will provide a transition between a major corridor and exiting low density housing, and because the proposal will increase the range of housing types in the area. • The Planning Board also found APPROVAL of the rezoning request is reasonable and in the public interest because the proposal supports the County’s goals of providing for a range of housing types and opportunities for households of different sizes and income levels. Board of Commissioners - September 7, 2021 ITEM: 8 - 2 - 14 Z21-10 Staff Report BOC 9.7.2021 Page 15 of 15 STAFF RECOMMENDATION Staff concurs with the Planning Board’s recommendation and suggests the following motion: I move to APPROVE the proposed rezoning to a (CZD) RMF-M district. I find it to be CONSISTENT with the purposes and intent of the Comprehensive Plan because the project provides for the types and mixture of uses recommended in the Community Mixed Use place type, the townhomes will provide a transition between a major corridor and exiting low density housing, and because the proposal will increase the range of housing types in the area. I also find APPROVAL of the rezoning request is reasonable and in the public interest because the proposal supports the County’s goals of providing for a range of housing types and opportunities for households of different sizes and income levels. (Optional) Note any conditions to be added to the district. Alternative Motion for Denial I move to DENY the proposed rezoning to a (CZD) RMF-M district. While I find it to be CONSISTENT with the purposes and intent of the Comprehensive Plan because the project provides for the types and mixture of uses recommended in the Community Mixed Use place type, the residential densities are in-line with those recommended for the property, and the project will provide an appropriate transition between a major road corridor and existing low density housing, I find DENIAL of the rezoning request is reasonable and in the public interest because the proposal is not consistent with the desired character of the surrounding community and the density will adversely impact the adjacent neighborhoods.

The procedure is intended primarily for use with transitions between zoning districts of dissimilar character where a particular use or uses, with restrictive conditions to safeguard adjacent land uses, can create a more orderly transition benefiting all affected parties and the community at-large. The applicant must explain, with reference to attached plans (where applicable), how the proposed Conditional Zoning district meets the following criteria. 1.How would the requested change be consistent with the County’s policies for growth and development, as described in the 2016 Comprehensive Plan, applicable small area plans, etc. Residential Townhouse (230) The policies for growth and development encourage safe and affordable housing to be available to every citizen. Sustainability of the County depends on sensible in-fill and maximizing use of lands already accessible to urban services. The proposed development will provide for an alternative housing product in the area. per Dwelling Unit @ 16 7 8 Board of Commissioners - September 7, 2021 ITEM: 8 - 7 - 4 Page 4 of 6 Conditional Zoning District Application – Updated 12-2020 2.How would the requested Conditional Zoning district be consistent with the property’s classification on the 2016 Comprehensive Plan’s Future Land Use Map. 3.What significant neighborhood changes have occurred to make the original zoning inappropriate, or how is the land involved unsuitable for the uses permitted under the existing zoning? The tract is identified in the Comprehansive Land Use Plan as a "Community Mixed-Use" place-type. The plan suggests higher densities. The proposed project is an acceptable transition use along the busier Carolina Beach Road, and the single-family / "age-restricted" residential community of Capeside Village to the West. Carolina Beach Road is a major thoroughfare, and has become extremely busy over the years. These undeveloped tracts along the highway are no longer attractive for the classic single-family home. Attached housing is a reasonable transitional use. Increased density allows for more affordability.

A copy of that written notice and a list of recipients are attached. Subsequently, one of the recipients objected to the venue and offered the community clubhouse as an alternative. Another mailing was made for the updated location. It is also attached. The meeting was held at the following time and place: Monday, June 28, 2021 6:00 p.m.; at the Capeside Village Clubhouse, 704 Capeside Drive. The persons in attendance at the meeting were: Reference attached sign-in List. The following issues were discussed at the meeting: A presentation was given on the proposed project, how it relates to the Comp Plan and the particulars about Conditional Zoning Districts. A representative from the community gave a presentation and provided a Petition of signatures outlining the various points their opposition (See Attached). Subsequent conversation revolved around mistrust in the stormwater regulations to protect them and the ever-increasing traffic on Carolina Beach Road. Some opponents simply did not want anything to be developed on the site, and others made a request that the developers consider age-restricting the proposed development as would be similar to their community. As a result of the meeting, the following changes were made to the petition: No changes were made to the concept layout of sixteen (16) units, but the developers are pro-actively reviewing the soils and preliminary stormwater management design.

Eads Street, Apl406N Arlington, Virginia 22202 August 19,2021 New Hanover County Board of Commissioners Attn: Office of the Clerk to the Board 230 Government Center Drive, Suite 175 Wilmington, North Carolina 28403 Re: Rezoning Request Z2l-10 7578 Carolina Beach Road Sepember 7, 2021 Hearing Dear County Commissioners: I am writing to provide comment on the above-referenced rezoning request being considered at the September 7th public hearing. My siblings and I own the tract adjacent to the subject tract (7588 Carolina Beach Road). We support the above referenced rezoning request, with the stipulation that if rezoning is approved for the Badhiwala property, my siblings and I will also be applying for rezoning of our property at some point in the near future. This is the second time that rezoning has been requested for this property. The Eatons and the Fonvielles (previous owners of the tract now owned by the Badhiwalas) requested rezoning of these two tracts in 2002 at which time the Capeside Village residents presented a strong opposition and the rezoning did not occur. I have read through their statement in opposition to the current rezoning request and it's clear that their position has not changed. It is unlikely that either of these two tracts would be suitable for single family dwellings under the current R15 zoning. The Capeside Village opposition to rezoning seeks to restrict the use of the Badhiwala (and ultimately the Eaton) tract and would be tantamount to a taking if their opposition is allowed to continue to restrict the use of those two tracts. The Capeside Village Owners Association has had nineteen (19) years to purchase those two tracts if they wanted to legitimately control how that land is ultimately used (or not used.) Please do not allow their continued opposition to dissuade you from granting the rezoning request. I further ask that you please enter this letter into the record on this matter. Sincerely, h,u/"A.ahc Carolyn A. Eaton Board of Commissioners - September 7, 2021 ITEM: 8 - 10 - 1
