INFORMATION:   Mayor Lavelle received the attached letter dated June 7, 2017 from the Orange County Board of Commissioners (Attachment A).  There is renewed interest to reformulate the Chatham/Orange Joint Planning Task Force that was originally formed in 2009.

 

In 2009, Chatham and Orange Counties developed a task force to discuss topics of mutual interest including transportation, water resources, comprehensive planning, population and employment projections, etc. These quarterly meetings also included other interested parties (via appointments by representative boards) such as the towns and OWASA. 

 

FISCAL & STAFF IMPACT:  None noted.

 

RECOMMENDATION:The staff recommends that the Board consider the request. A resolution (Attachment A) that provides the Board with an opportunity to select a representative to the task force has been prepared for its use.
