§                     Private developer 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 $44,506.35 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:

-                     Northwood Development, LLC contributed $32,500 for signal modifications at Johnston Road and Brixham Hill Avenue (Council District 7), and

-                     On February 13, 2017, City Council appropriated $141,582 from GSLH Charlotte Realty Holdings, LLC for a new signal and push button pedestrian signals at the intersection of Church Street and West Hill Street (Council District 2). GSLH Charlotte Realty Holdings, LLC has contributed $12,006.35 in supplemental developer funds for an additional signal.

§                     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.
