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

§                     Funding contributions from private developers must be appropriated prior to the city’s initiation of work.

§                     The $324,415 in private developer funds is for road modifications, traffic signals, traffic signal modifications, and/or upgrades, and other related work associated with the developers’ projects. The funding is restricted to the projects noted below:

-                     SR University, LLC contributed $9,775 for signal modifications at North Tryon Street and University City Boulevard (Council District 4).

-                     Mecklenburg County contributed $185,380 for a new signal at Lancaster Highway and Carolina Academy Road (Council District 7).                                                               

§                     These developer contributions are based on cost estimates prepared by the Charlotte Department of Transportation (CDOT).

§                     Any funding contributed by the developer(s) for a signal project that is unused by the city will be refunded back to the developer(s) after project completion.

§                     CDOT will install and operate these signals as part of the existing signal systems in the area.
