Article 14.1 - Overview

To lessen congestion in the streets and to facilitate the efficient and adequate provision of transportation and other public services pursuant to N.C.G.S § 160D-701, proposed development plans shall be subject to a determination of the sufficiency of infrastructure as defined by predetermined levels of service in accordance with this Article. 

When a Traffic Impact Analysis (TIA) is required to determine the sufficiency of infrastructure pursuant to Section 14.2, the TIA will be prepared by a qualified traffic engineering consultant retained by the applicant or petitioner and reviewed and approved by the Town.  

Infrastructure shall be considered sufficient where it is demonstrated to have available capacity to accommodate the demand generated by the proposed development, as well as other approved developments and the Comprehensive Transportation Plan. 

Pursuant to subsection 14.4.2, when infrastructure is determined to have insufficient capacity to accommodate the demand generated by the proposed development, the applicant or petitioner may propose to mitigate the impact of the development by constructing, or providing sufficient funding for the construction of, infrastructure or facilities necessary to provide sufficient capacity to accommodate the development. The commitment to construct or fund the construction of infrastructure or facilities shall be included as a condition of development.
