2019 Status Status Comments/Explanation
Open Space Preservation – Existing Open Space Plan identifies and evaluates various land and open space resources throughout the ETJ and Urban Services Areas. The plan is used by Town staff to identify properties to be protected from development.
Comprehensive Plan was completed and implementation is In- Progress. Adaptive stormwater aproach to openspace and green stormwater infrastucuture opportunities. Town has spent the last year on a new Adaptive Stormater approach which includes a review and revisions to stormwater ordinances, a pilot dynamic floodplain model in the Walnut Creek Basin that will be expanded to include partners such as the City of Raleigh as well as modoleing of other basins, a proactive approach to maintenance of the Town stormwater infrastructure, using GIS for Condition Assessment and most importantly understanding that our most effective tool for floodplain management is Open Space and exploring ways to continue the development of that very important tool.
If grant application is approved by FEMA, the Town will conduct a detailed study to determine the risk level of each residential structure in the identified floodplain areas and take actions to reduce the risk to those properties.
