Council Kit Creek Road Approval; P&Z Land & Transportation Plan Discussion Continued in November

Updated 10/28/08
At its meeting on October 9, the Planning & Zoning Board (P&Z) voted to recommend that the Town staff continue its deliberations with North Carolina’s Department of Transportation (DOT) to seek an acceptable Davis Drive Connection for the Kit Creek Community. Preferred was an alternative that will have minimal effect on existing homes as well as require considerable traffic calming measures and vehicle restrictions on Kit Creek Road. Included in the recommendation was support for pedestrian sidewalks and bike use.

The Town Council endorsed this recommendation at its business meeting on Tuesday, October 28.

During the October 9th meeting, P&Z also continued its consideration of the proposed Land Use & Transportation Plans (LUTP) for Morrisville. However, a recommendation to the Town Council was not made. The P&Z Board will continue discussion of the LUTP at its November 13th meeting.

At this point, the consensus of P&Z was to endorse the high priority placed on the improvement and widening of Route 54. The Board also favored including the Crabtree Crossing Parkway connection in the LUTP for future consideration. In addition, support was expressed for the proposed designation of additional Regional Activity Centers (RAC) around the planned Park West Village. Consideration was also given to changing a number of the Plan’s land use designations to low-density residential.
