Council Work Session on Farm Women’s Market Parks Development Project
On June 28 at 7:30 p.m., the Town Council will hold a work session to discuss a response to a draft Letter of Intent (LOI) related to the Farm Women's Market parks development project, including a County request for the Town to consider increasing its financial commitment to the project from $4 million to $4.5 million.
The LOI, which was drafted by the County, will set out what is expected of the County, the Parks Department, the property developers, and the Town related to the project. The proposed funding increase from the Town, along with an additional $1 million from the developers, $3.5 million from State, and a contribution of at least $7.75 million from the County, would satisfy the County’s requirements for a financial plan.
The LOI and the funding request have been considered by the joint Long Range Planning Committee and Land Use Committee. Further discussion of the Town’s response will be on the agenda for the July 21 Council meeting. A public hearing also may be scheduled for that meeting to receive resident feedback on any decision taken at the June 28 meeting.
