DEPARTMENT: Public Works

 

CONTACT INFORMATION: Joe Guckavan, 919-918-7427, jguckavan@townofcarrboro.org

 

INFORMATION: The Town has a policy regarding applications for monuments located on town property. The policy lists guidelines to consider when reviewing potential monuments.

The applicant, Arthur DeBerry, has submitted the application in honor of Ronald Mann, a longtime community member.  Ronald Man was born in Carrboro, worked as the Manager for Fitch Lumber & Hardware for 40 years, and “was a friend to all who came in the store.”

The proposed monument is a black metal bench with a plaque.  The new bench will be the same make and style as our current metal benches at Town facilities and will include a plaque on the back support. 

The applicant stated the proposed location of the bench is “flexible and will accept the Town’s recommendation,” but suggested it be located next to the Farmer’s Market.  Public Works solicited suggested locations, at the Town Commons, from Town Departments and the Farmer’s Market.    It was agreed, the proposed bench should be located near the entrance to the Town Commons.  See Attachment D - Proposed Monument Location.

 

FISCAL & STAFF IMPACT: The applicant will pay the cost of the bench, installation, and plaque.

 

RECOMMENDATION:r It is recommended the Board of Alderman approve the application for a monument on Carrboro Town Property.
