T he creeks included in this study are Pages, Futch, L o rds, Mo3, B arnards, Smith, and Prince Geo rge. I n addion, three sampling sites from within Airlie Gardens were included beginning with the 2015-2016 sampling efforts. Physical and biological parameter da ta is collected at each of the dal c reek sampling lo caons. Physical parameters include tempera ture, salinity, conducvity, pH , turbidity, a nd dissolved o xygen. B io lo gical pa rameters include chlo ro phyll-a and E nterococci. At Airlie Gardens, physical parameters as well as chemical parameters including ortho pho sphate and nitrate/nitrite are monitored. E nterococci sa mples are no t co llected at Airlie Gardens. T he informaon included in the annual report focuses on the results of the mo nitoring period that to o k place f ro m J uly 2020 thro ugh J une 2021. L ong term trends have also been assessed using data obtained since 2007. T he purpose o f this presentaon is for C P E-N C staff to present da ta from the F Y 2020-2021 mo nitoring program and long term trends. I n general, the disso lved o xygen levels within each creek ha ve not changed notably from year to year and connue to be non-problemac, tho ugh dissolved o xygen levels within Prince Geo rge C reek have been co nsistently lo w, which may be a3ributed to the natural slo w mo ving water o f the creek. Turbidity has slightly increased in several creeks since 2008 but overall, turbidity levels remain non-problemac. L evels of chlo ro phyll-a in all watersheds have remained consistent and show no signs for concern. O vera ll, E nterococci bacteria levels during the 2020-2021 sa mpling f o r the majority of the watersheds remained the same or were slightly lower than last yea r, with the excepo n o f Pages C reek and Princ e George C reek which saw increa ses. E nterococci bacteria has had a history o f elevated levels that have been of caref ully mo nitored o ver the years within several of the creeks inc luding Mo 3, Pages, B arnards, Smith, and Prince George. L o rds C reek and Futch C reek, o n average, have co ntained relavely lower bacteria levels co mpared to the o ther creeks. As a n o ngoing eff o rt to determine the so urce of the bacteria at Pages C reek, the county partnered with C P E-N C and the U niversity of N orth C arolina W ilmingto n (U N C W ) on a research project this past yea r. I n J anuary 2021, an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) equipped with thermal infrared sensors was flown alo ng targeted segments within the Pages C reek watershed to idenf y temperature differenc es between the surf ace water o f the creek and surro unding areas, which can indicate the presence o f any co ntaminao n entering the creek. Fo llo wing the study, several areas were invesgated, and some were ruled o ut based on reviewing aerial imagery and site visits. Gro undtruthing the remaining sites revealed several subterra nean water seeps entering the creek f ro m the streambank. Staff has worked with C P E to perform addional water quality tesng, which indicated there was E nterococci bacteria in the water coming f ro m the seeps.

Board of Commissioners - October 4, 2021 ITEM: 13 CPE-NC NEW HANOVER COUNTY WATER QUALITY MONITORING PROGRAM 2020-2021 FINAL REPORT Prepared by: Coastal Protection Engineering of North Carolina, Inc. Marine Scientist: Brad Rosov, M.Sc. Prepared For: New Hanover County, North Carolina Recommended Citation: Rosov, B., 2021. New Hanover County Water Quality Monitoring Program: 2020- 2021 Final Report. New Hanover County, North Carolina: Coastal Protection Engineering of North Carolina, Inc. September 2021 Board of Commissioners - October 4, 2021 ITEM: 13- 1 - 1 CPE-NC i This report represents the results of the New Hanover County Water Quality Monitoring Program from July 2020 to June 2021. The results and long-term trends presented in this report are described from a watershed perspective. Since 2007 the county has worked with Coastal Protection Engineering of North Carolina to test water quality at nineteen (19) monitoring stations within seven (7) tidal creeks in New Hanover County. The creeks monitored include Barnards, Futch, Lords, Mott, Pages, Prince George, and Smith. Each creek is monitored monthly for physical, chemical, and biological characteristics that depict the overall quality of the water. In addition to the raw sampling results, a general assessment of the water quality is provided for each watershed. The general assessment gives each parameter the rating of either “Good”, “Fair”, or “Poor” depending on the percentage of samples that went above the State standard for turbidity, chlorophyll-a, and Enterococci, or below the State standard for dissolved oxygen. If the recorded value of a parameter went outside the acceptable range of the State standard less than 10% of the times sampled the watershed will receive a “Good” rating, a “Fair” rating 11%-25% of the times sampled, or a “Poor” rating for greater than 25% of the sampling times. Ratings by watershed during the 2020-2021 reporting period Parameter Barnards Creek Futch Creek Lords Creek Mott Creek Pages Creek Prince George Creek Smith Creek Turbidity GOOD GOOD GOOD GOOD GOOD GOOD GOOD Dissolved Oxygen GOOD GOOD GOOD GOOD FAIR POOR GOOD Chlorophyll-a GOOD GOOD GOOD GOOD GOOD GOOD GOOD Enterococci GOOD GOOD GOOD FAIR POOR FAIR GOOD Long Term Trends Dissolved oxygen, turbidity, and chlorophyll-a levels fluctuate on a seasonal basis where levels decrease in the winter and increase in the summer. Generally, dissolved oxygen levels have not changed drastically from year to year and there has been minimal issues with low dissolved oxygen levels with the exception of Prince George Creek where levels in the creek have been consistently low over time. This is due to Prince George Creek’s water flow, which is naturally slow and acts more like swamp-like waters. Slower moving waters are typical of having lower dissolved oxygen levels. Likewise, in general, turbidity and chlorophyll-a levels over time have not been of concern. Overall, Enterococci bacteria levels during the 2020-2021 sampling for the majority of the watersheds remained the same or were slightly lower than last year, with the exception of Pages Creek and Prince Georges Creek which saw increases. Enterococci bacteria has had a history of elevated levels that have been of carefully monitored over the years within several of the creeks including Mott, Pages, Barnards, Smith, and Prince George. Lords Creek and Futch Creek, on average, have contained relatively lower bacteria levels compared to the other creeks. In addition to monitoring the seven tidal creeks, New Hanover County in 2015 began monthly testing at the lake at Airlie Gardens due to concerns of water quality and noticeable algal blooms that had occurred over the years. The lake drains directly into Bradley Creek close to the Intracoastal Waterway. There are three sampling sites, one where contributing water enters the lake (intake), one in the middle of the lake, and one at the outfall before the water enters Bradley Creek. Board of Commissioners - October 4, 2021 ITEM: 13- 1 - 2 CPE-NC ii Since 2015 water quality monitoring has shown that dissolved oxygen varies significantly over an annual basis, increasing during the warmer summer months and decreasing during the colder winter months. Overall, there are no current concerns with the dissolved oxygen levels. Over past 7 years, the levels of the nutrient orthophosphate as well as Nitrite/Nitrate has generally been higher at the intake compared to the sampling sites located at the middle of the lake and at the outfall. High concentrations of orthophosphate and Nitrite/Nitrate has been linked to algae growth leading to algae blooms which can cause issues leading to low dissolved oxygen and a decline in overall water quality. Levels of orthophosphate have incrementally increased over the past six years while Nitrate/Nitrite levels have remained relatively stable. Chlorophyll-a levels can also indicate the presence of algal blooms. In recent years levels have increased at the middle of the lake and the outfall and compared to the sampling location in proximity to the intake into the lake. Improvement Efforts In addition to continued monitoring there have been efforts from New Hanover County to improve overall water quality including the purchasing of property with Clear Water Management Trust Funds, working with the Cape Fear Public Utility Authority to test sewer infrastructure, install stormwater BMPs (Best Manage Practices like raingardens, infiltration basins, and impervious surface retrofits), as well as perform additional source tracking. In 2008 New Hanover County partnered with University of North Carolina Wilmington’s Center for Marine Science and Coastal Protection Engineering NC Inc. to conduct an initial DNA source tracking study to identify the origin of the bacteria in Pages Creek. The study showed that the water sampled tested positive for a human source suggesting that the bacteria in the creek was coming from nearby wastewater systems such as septic tanks and/or the municipal sewer system. Following the report, NHC Planning & Land Use partnered with the Cape Fear Public Utility Authority and the NHC Health Department to search for leaking septic or sewer, however, that investigation did not find the source for contamination. In 2013 the County partnered with UNC-Chapel Hill to conduct an extensive study into the source of enterococci bacteria in Mott, Smith and Pages creeks. That study did find the presence of a human signature in the bacteria for all three creeks, with Smith and Pages having the higher counts. In 2019 New Hanover County partnered with the University of North Carolina Wilmington’s Socio- Environmental Analysis Laboratory and Coastal Protection Engineering of North Carolina to conduct a thermal imagery scan of two portions of Pages Creek adjacent to monitoring sites that have consistently detected elevated levels of Enterococci bacteria in an attempt identify any possible sources of bacteria entering the creek. The thermal study consisted of utilizing a thermal sensor (thermal camera) attached to a fixed wing drone. The thermal sensor was flown following a rain event in January of 2021 in order to detect differences in temperature both above and below ground to show anywhere where there maybe uncommon warm spots or patterns that would normally be cold. Following the flight, UNCW and CPE analyzed the imagery to identify uncommon differences in temperature that may be a possible target or areas that may need follow up investigation. The full report from UNCW of the thermal study and a summary from CPE are found in Appendix D and E of this report. Most recently, staff has worked with CPE to perform additional water quality testing in two areas where the thermal imagery showed peculiar temperature differences. Groundtruthing these sites revealed Board of Commissioners - October 4, 2021 ITEM: 13- 1 - 3 CPE-NC iii several subterranean seeps entering the creek from the streambank. That testing indicated there was Enterococci bacteria in water coming from the seeps in proximity of the two sewage lift stations adjacent to the long-term monitoring sites at Pages Creek. More samples and PCR tracing will be needed in order to make a definitive determination as to whether that ground water contains bacteria and if the bacteria is from a human source. Airlie Gardens To help combat problems associated with eutrophication and overall water quality, Airlie Gardens has implemented initiatives identified in their stormwater master plan. These initiatives include installing several aerators in the lake to increase the dissolved oxygen levels, restore a wetland area near the entry point where water enters the lake and the completion of a dredging operation effectively removing approximately 4,000 cubic yards of bottom sediment and material. Monitoring data from this past year has not shown a reduction on nutrient loading into the lake. It may take a couple to several years for a data trend to emerge. It is recommended to continue to monitor the lake to gauge the status of the lake and the effectiveness of the implemented projects. Program Expansion For this upcoming year, a new watershed and testing site have been added to the program. Island Creek located in the norther portion of the county is segmented by Sidbury Road and is largely undeveloped. The testing site proposed at a culvert that runs under Sidbury Road will provide a baseline for the water quality data in the watershed. The baseline data will be necessary in in order to establish trends as the area is anticipated to develop over time.

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 13 dwelling units at a density of 2.5 du/ac. The proposed 40 units equate to an overall density of 7.8 du/ac. • The purpose of the R-5, Residential Moderate-High Density District is to provide lands that accommodate moderate to high density residential development on smaller lots with a compact and walkable development pattern. The R-5 district allows a range of housing types and can be developed in conjunction with a non-residential district to create a vertical mixed-use development pattern as well as serve as a transition between mixed-use or commercial development and low to moderate density residential development. • The site is situated between residential development to the north, south and west and a place of worship to the east. • While the adjacent residential developments are zoned R-15 and MF-L(CD), the development patterns deviate from the traditional densities of these districts. Silver Creek Village at Jasmine Cove, north of the request, contains a density of 8.7 units per are. Fortune Place II, south of the request, is located within the municipal limits, and contains a density of 2.6 units per acre.

A development of this scale is estimated to generate about 33-42 trips during the peak hours, for an increase of 19-28 trips during the peak hours. The estimated traffic generated from the site is under the 100 peak hour threshold that triggers the ordinance requirement for a Traffic Impact Analysis. • A driveway permit will be required to be obtained from NCDOT prior to the issuance of any building permits. This permit may require roadway improvements if determined to be necessary during permit review.

However, the site is expected to be served by Cape Fear Public Utility Authority when developed. OTHER CONSIDERATIONS SCHOOLS • Students living in the proposed development would be assigned to Williams Elementary, Myrtle Grove Middle, and Ashley High Schools. Students may apply to attend public magnet, year-round elementary, or specialty high schools. • Under the current zoning, density would be limited to a maximum of 13 dwelling units. A maximum of 40 units could be developed under the proposed rezoning. Board of Commissioners - October 4, 2021 ITEM: 14- 2 - 10 Z21-11 Staff Report BOC 10.4.2021 Page 11 of 17 • Based on the current general student generation rate*, the increase in homes would result in approximately 6 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 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 13 residential units Approximate**Total: 3 (1 elementary, 1 middle, 1 high) Proposed (CZD) R-5 Zoning 40 residential units Approximate**Total: 9 (4 elementary, 2 middle, 3 high) *The current general student generation rate was calculated by dividing the projected New Hanover County public school studen t 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 Hanov er 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 f raction of 0.5 or higher are rounded up to a whole number and yields with a fraction 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 - October 4, 2021 ITEM: 14- 2 - 11 Z21-11 Staff Report BOC 10.4.2021 Page 12 of 17 School Enrollment* and Capacity** (2021-2022 School Year) * Enrollment is based on the New Hanover County Schools enrollment that was projected for the 202 1-2022 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 Needs 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 campus 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 R-5 zoning district would allow for new 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. Under the proposed R-5 district, single family detached would decrease (78.9% to 78.5%) and single family attached units would increase (7.5% to 7.9%). • The subject property is located in the Monkey Junction community area, where 67% of residents currently live within one-mile of a convenience need (grocery store, retail staples, pharmacies, etc.), a support service (urgent care, primary doctor’s office, child & adult care, etc.), and a community facility (public park, school, museum etc.). • With the proposed number of units and a recently approved mixed use project nearby incorporating housing and retail/commercial, the number of residences within one -mile of goods and services would increase (67% to 69%).

Fortune Place II, south of the request, Board of Commissioners - October 4, 2021 ITEM: 14- 2 - 14 Z21-11 Staff Report BOC 10.4.2021 Page 15 of 17 located within the municipal limits, is zoned MF-L(CD) and contains a density of 2.6 units per acre. • This proposal does not provide additional buffers; however, both established neighborhoods maintain their own vegetated buffers along shared property boundaries. • The elevations provided by the applicant include a similar architecture of the adjacent neighborhood homes and attached garages. 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 General Residential Place Type Description Focuses on lower density housing ranging up to approximately 8 du/ac and typically consisting of single-family or duplexes. Types of appropriate uses include single-family residential, low-density multi-family residential, light commercial, civic and recreational. Board of Commissioners - October 4, 2021 ITEM: 14- 2 - 15 Z21-11 Staff Report BOC 10.4.2021 Page 16 of 17 Analysis The proposed (CZD) R-5 zoning would provide a transition in density and intensity between the place of worship along S. College Road frontage, designated as Community Mixed Use development, and the variety of densities within the established single-family neighborhoods north, west, and east 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. While connectivity is difficult for this location due to the existing development pattern and roadway configuration in the area, the proposed development will connect with Jasmine Cove Way. Future residents will also have access to an existing Wave Transit stop on South College Road, located between Jasmine Cove Way and Pine Hollow Drive to access goods and services in close proximity. The proposal is in line with the preferred density range for the General Residential place type. This place type envisions lower density residential development up to 8 dwelling units per acre. The applicant is proposing 40 units, for an overall density of 7.8 units per acre. Consistency Recommendation The proposed (CZD) R-5, Conditional Residential Moderate-High Density District rezoning is generally CONSISTENT with the intent of the 2016 Comprehensive Plan because the project provides for the types of uses and density recommended in the General Residential place type and the proposal will provide a transition between a place of worship and the established low and moderate residential neighborhoods. PLANNING BOARD MEETING The Planning Board considered this application at their August 5, 2021 meeting. At the meeting, six residents spoke in opposition to the request, citing concerns with density, parking, traffic, and drainage. Upon the applicant’s request, the Planning Board voted to continue the item until their September 2, 2021 meeting (5-0). The Planning Board considered this application at their September 2, 2021 meeting. At the meeting five residents spoke in opposition, citing concerns about traffic, density, and drainage. The Planning Board recommended approval of the application (6-0) with one condition: • Each residential structure shall include an attached garage consistent with the elevations submitted with the revised petition. 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 of uses and density recommended in the General Residential place type and the proposal will provide a transition between a place of worship and the existing low and moderate density housing. Board of Commissioners - October 4, 2021 ITEM: 14- 2 - 16 Z21-11 Staff Report BOC 10.4.2021 Page 17 of 17 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. STAFF RECOMMENDATION Staff concurs with the Planning Board’s recommendation and suggests the following motion and condition: I move to APPROVE the proposed rezoning to a (CZD) R-5 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 General Residential place type and the proposal will provide a transition between a place of worship and the existing low and moderate density housing. 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. Staff suggested Condition: 1. Each residential structure shall include an attached garage consistent with the elevations submitted with the revised petition. Alternative Motion for Denial I move to DENY the proposed rezoning to a (CZD) R-5 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 General Residential place type, the residential densities are in-line with those recommended for the property, and the project will provide an appropriate transition between a place of worship and existing low and moderate 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.

Proposed Zoning, Use(s), & Narrative Please list the uses that will be allowed within the proposed Conditional Zoning District, the purpose of the district, and a project narrative (attach additional pages if necessary). Note: Only uses permitted in the corresponding General Use District are eligible for consideration within a Conditional Zoning District. River Birch Investments, LLC is requesting the property, including parcels R07100-003-046-000, R07100-003-568-000, and R07100-003-567-000, be rezoned to from R-15 to Residential Moderate-High Density (R-5) District for a forty (40) lot, single family residential use of the property to provide a necessary missing middle housing opportunity. The R-5 district allows a range of housing types and can be developed in conjunction with a non-residential district to create a vertical mixed-use development pattern as well as serve as a transition between mixed-use or commercial development and low to moderate density residential development. The project is proposed on three tracts of mostly vacant land with one residence. The proposed project is an infill site currently surrounded by developed properties of single family and a church and conveniently located between two commercial centers with the Pine Valley library and shopping to the north and Monkey Junction to the south. The Future Land Use Map identifies this site as General Residential. General Residential focuses on lower density housing ranging up to approximately 8 units per acre and typically consisting of single-family or duplexes. The proposed project is for single-family residential at under 8 units per acre which aligns with the properties’ classifications on the 2016 Comprehensive Plan’s Future Land Use Map. We will amentize the pond by placing walking trails and a dog park adjacent therefore having the pond be a vital part of our active open space. The proposed project will plant street tress in addition to other landscape amenities to enhance the visual appeal of the neighborhood. The project will have access via of the public right of way of Jasmine Cove Way and a WAVE transit stop is conveniently located at the intersection of Jasmine Cove Way and College Road. There are no wetlands or waters of the US present within the boundaries of the project parcels. Water and sewer are available to the property line of the project site. 4. Proposed Condition(s) Note: Within a Conditional Zoning District, additional conditions and requirements which represent greater restrictions on the development and use of the property than the corresponding general use district regulations may be added. These conditions may assist in mitigating the impacts the proposed development may have on the surrounding community. Please list any conditions proposed to be placed on the Conditional Zoning District below. Staff, the Planning Board, and Board of Commissioners may propose additional conditions during the review process. Board of Commissioners - October 4, 2021 ITEM: 14- 7 - 7 We will amentize the pond by placing walking trails and a dog park adjacent therefore having the pond be a vital part of our active open space. 6. Conditional Zoning District Considerations 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. The proposed project is currently classified General Residential on the Future Land Use Map and boarded by General Residential and Community Mixed Use. General Residential focuses on lower density housing ranging up to approximately 8 units per acre and typically consisting of single-family or duplexes. The proposed project is for single-family residential at under 8 units per acre which aligns with the properties’ classifications on the 2016 Comprehensive Plan’s Future Land Use Map. The single family residential would assist with the County’s Strategic Plan Objective of enhancing the self-sufficiency of individuals and families and Goal XV of providing a range of housing types, opportunities, and choices. This project will provide a safe and conveniently located community and provides another housing type near the employment centers as it is located between two commercial centers with the Pine Valley library and shopping to the north and Monkey Junction to the south. 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. The proposed project is currently zoned General Residential and boarded by general residential and community mixed use. General Residential focuses on lower density housing ranging up to approximately 8 units per acre typically consisting of single family or duplexes. The proposed project is for single-family residential at under 8 units per acre which aligns with the properties’ classifications on the 2016 Comprehensive Plan’s Future Land Use Map. Board of Commissioners - October 4, 2021 ITEM: 14- 7 - 8 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 project site is boarded on the north by Jasmine Cove, a townhome community, Cedar Cove Assisted Living Facility, and the Wilmington Shrine Club; to the east by religious institutions and the Wilmington Shrine Club, the south by a religious institution; and to the south and west by single family residential. The surrounding properties have not been developed in the typical R- 15 purpose of very low to low density residential development and the R-5 zoning with single family lots would be a proper transition to the surrounding uses. The R-5 district allows a range of housing types and can be developed in conjunction with a non-residential district to create a vertical mixed-use development pattern as well as serve as a transition between mixed-use or commercial development and low to moderate density residential development. Due to the unique dimension of this tract, the proximity to College Road, the proximity to transit and services, this site lends itself to meet the purpose of the R-5 zoning district.

Property owners within 500 ft. of Jasmine South, as required by New Hanover County, were notified of the community meeting by mail on June 18, 2021. The meeting allowed people to view a context aerial for general site location purposes and a concept of the overall proposed conditional rezoning. The Development Team also provided a brief overview of the public hearing process and technical review process for development projects in New Hanover County. The community asked the Development Team questions about the plans, and many of the same questions were discussed repeatedly during the meeting. The following is a synopsis of the comments heard at the meeting. • A few people mentioned receiving the notice of the community meeting late and possible difficulty of accessing the Zoom meeting. The Development Team agreed to set up a separate email account for Jasmine South and to follow up with the neighbors after the meeting. • Attendees were most concerned about the density of the project. The Development Team explained the project is intended to serve as workforce housing. • Neighbors expressed worry about what type of housing product would be built. The Development Team stated the proposed request will be for detached, single family housing. • Questions were presented regarding homes sizes and sale prices. The Development Team explained the exact product type is still under consideration, but the home size is estimated to be 1600 sq feet with a price range starting at $250,000. • One participant expressed concerns over potential air, light, and noise pollution. The Development Team explained the proposal is for single family residential and any street lights will be required to shine down on Jasmine South. • Concerns were raised over the potential for Jasmine South to lower the property value of the adjacent neighborhoods. Again, the Development Team explained the exact product type is still under consideration, but the home size is estimated to be 1600 sq feet with a price range starting at $250,000. • Neighbors asked if the project would seek government assistance or subsidies. The Development Team said no. • Concerns were raised regarding the project's impact on the school system and bus stops. The Development Team agreed to discuss this concern with New Hanover County staff. • Neighbors expressed concern over the visibility of the structures from their properties. The Development Team is going to work on potential elevations of the proposed single family Board of Commissioners - October 4, 2021 ITEM: 14- 7 - 16 detached homes. The project site has few trees and it appears most are within the adjacent Homeowner Association areas. • A question was asked if Jasmine South would be fenced. The Development Team stated that due to the desire for workforce housing, the proposal does not include a fence. However, homeowners could certainly install them if they chose. • Neighbors had concerns over the current stormwater issues, ponds, and ditches as well as the potential hazards of a pond. It was explained that the state stormwater regulations require the project to treat all water on site and not contribute to flooding in the area. The ponds are not required to be fenced under New Hanover County code requirements. • Concerns centered around traffic that will be created by the development and the proposed access. The Development Team explained a traffic impact analysis was not warranted but they did study the traffic and found 33 AM Peak Hour Trips and 42 PM Peak Hour Trips. The Development Team explained that Jasmine Cove Way is a public road and that is why it will be used for access to the project instead of access through third party private property. • Jasmine South proposed a dog park and neighbors were concerned over noise and fencing. The proposed dog park would be fenced and was proposed as an additional amenity to Jasmine South. • A question was asked if there had been an environmental study completed and if there was any endangered wildlife. The Development Team stated they had completed an environmental survey to determine if there were any wetlands or waters of the U.S. present within the boundaries of the parcels and there were none found. A study had not been done for wildlife but the Development Team would check with New Hanover County since there is other recent development in the area. • One neighbor asked about Native American camps on the site. The Development Team had no knowledge of such but agreed to check with New Hanover County since there is other recent development in the area. • Questions arose regarding the water and sewer capacity and connection areas. CFPUA has stated there is capacity and connections are located on Jasmine Cove Way. Attached, please find the sign-up sheet and a copy of emails received regarding the proposed meeting.
