§                     Private developer appropriations are needed when a developer is required through the rezoning process to make traffic signal improvements.

§                     Funding contributions from private developers must be appropriated before work begins.

§                     The $85,000 in private developer funds will be used exclusively for the installation of a traffic signal at the intersection of Sam Wilson Road and Performance Road, adjacent to Council District 3.

§                     The location of the new signal is on State Routes; therefore, the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) authorizes a signal installation at this location.

§                     These developer contributions will help offset the costs of this signal installation incurred by NCDOT.

§                     NCDOT will install and operate this signal as it is located outside the city limits.

§                     NCDOT does not have the mechanism to accept private developer funds. The city assists NCDOT when outside organizations want to contribute monetarily to projects.

§                     This format is consistent with the past Municipal Agreements between the city and NCDOT.
