Come join the celebration from 4:00 until 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, August 4 at Caldwell Park, and continue reading the CityLink Newsletter to learn more about National Night Out.

Take a stand against crime on National Night Out
Tuesday, August 4 is National Night Out, an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, better places to live. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community, and provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.

 

Neighborhoods across the nation host block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and other various community events with safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel, and exhibits.  This year marks the 14th National Night out Celebration for the City of Concord. All residents are encouraged to leave your porch light on and get out to meet your neighbors.

Along with the traditional display of outdoor lights, many neighborhood groups celebrate with events to help neighbors get to know one another and to build community spirit. City staff members and elected officials will be participating in many of these, and the entire community is invited to Caldwell Park from 4:00 until 8:00 p.m. on August 4 for free food, fellowship, fun, and more! Learn more about National Night Out at nno.org.

Voluntary Water Conservation requested as regional drought conditions worsen

Concord and Kannapolis Request Voluntary Water Conservation

On Wednesday July 22, the Cities of Concord and Kannapolis announced that customers of both municipalities’ water systems should follow Level 1 water use restrictions, due to regional drought conditions. These restrictions are for the municipalities of Concord, Kannapolis, Harrisburg, Landis, and Midland.  The Catawba-Wateree Drought Management Advisory Group (CW-DMAG) also announced that dry weather conditions and above-average temperatures have placed the Catawba-Wateree River Basin in Stage 1 drought levels of the Low Inflow Protocol (LIP). The LIP is the regional drought management plan that major water users in the Basin use to share responsibility and set priorities to conserve the limited water supply. Although not public water suppliers in the Catawba River Basin, Concord and Kannapolis follow the group's drought stages as part of the Interbasin Transfer Agreement. Customers are reminded that under normal, responsible water use guidelines adopted by Concord and Kannapolis, lawn irrigation is ONLY allowed on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. To learn more about what activities are permitted by Level 1 voluntary restriction, visit concordnc.gov.

 

Moving more local sales tax revenue from Concord still a possibility

The North Carolina Senate and House of Representatives have now both appointed their budget conferees to resolve differences between the Senate and House budget bills. The appointees include members of our local delegation. Representative Linda Johnson is a Co-Chair on the House side.  Senator Fletcher Hartsell is a member on the Senate side. The Senate budget bill contains the local government sales tax redistribution formula whereby Cabarrus County and the municipalities within it would annually lose millions of dollars as sales taxes collected in the County would be sent elsewhere in North Carolina. Estimates predict at least a $1.7 million annual revenue loss to the City of Concord by 2020. This loss in revenue stands to greatly restrict the ability of Concord and many other cities to provide the needed services and infrastructure to continue generating sales taxes for the State of North Carolina, which benefits even more from sales tax revenue. Residents are encouraged to continuing contacting legislators to protect local revenue.  Click here to find out who represents you in the North Carolina General Assembly, and contact them with your thoughts on these bills.

A milestone in good government
July 15th marked the 50th anniversary of the Council-Manager Form of Government in Concord. Perhaps the most important decision for local elected officials to make, all 100 counties and all municipalities of substantial size in North Carolina employ a professional local government manager to serve as the CEO of the government's organization. This person brings the professional knowledge, skills, and abilities to manage the day-to-day operations of the organization, handle all personnel matters, recommend a balanced budget each year, and serve as the chief advisor to the elected officials. To learn more about 50 years of professional local government management in Concord and who has served in this role, visit facebook.com/ConcordNC.

Construction ramping up on latest I-85 widening project
Beginning next week, the N.C. Department of Transportation will be ramping up construction efforts on the Interstate 85 widening project in Cabarrus County. Motorists are asked to be on the lookout for workers and construction vehicles in this active work zone. Crews began initial work on the project in May, but motorists traveling through the project area from Exit 55 to Exit 63 should expect heavy construction to begin in the I-85 median from Exit 55 to Exit 58 and at the U.S. 29/601 and I-85 interchange. Although all travel lanes will be maintained during project construction, motorists can expect construction/hauling traffic to occur periodically. The speed limit has been reduced to 55 mph throughout the project limits. The widening project will add four additional travel lanes (two in each direction) to approximately eight miles of I-85 from Exit 55 to Exit 63. The project also includes interchange improvements at U.S. 29/601 (Exit 58), Dale Earnhardt Boulevard (Exit 60) and Lane Street (Exit 63). Learn more about the project at ncdot.gov/projects/i-85widening.

A safety message from the Concord Fire Department
While fireworks are one of the things we enjoy most about the Fourth of July, they are also one of the greatest safety concerns. Fireworks can cause serious injuries, including burns, lacerations, eye injuries, vision loss, dismemberment, and even death. Sadly, children and young adults are the majority of victims of fireworks accidents requiring emergency room treatment. Many young children suffer burns from sparklers, which are often mistakenly considered safe for kids. You can help make the holiday safe for your family and friends by ensuring that fireworks are used in a legal and appropriate manner.

The State of North Carolina and the City of Concord only allow the sale or use of certain “permissible” fireworks that do not explode, rise in the air, travel laterally on the ground, or fire projectiles into the air. These permissible fireworks may only be sold to those 16 years of age or older, and include sparklers, fountains, smoke devices, snake and glow worms, trick noisemakers such as string poppers or snappers, and toy pistol caps. These are distinguishable from other fireworks such as firecrackers, Roman candles, missiles, bottle rockets, and shells, which are not legal in North Carolina. Be responsible and safe while enjoying time spent with family and friends! For more information about Fireworks safety, contact the Fire Department at 704-920-5517.

Timeless archway invites a stroll along history
Thursday morning, a wrought iron archway marking the entrance of the Union-Market Passageway was installed between 46 and 48 Union Street S. Funded by the City of Concord, artist Alan Gilbert of Iron Work, Inc. designed, fabricated, and installed the archway, which resembles vines growing around an oval sign. Gilbert is fabricating an additional iron vine that will connect a directional sign inviting visitors to the passageway’s historical exhibit, to be located on the Market Street entrance of the passageway. In May of 2012, the City Council adopted names for two Union Street S connector walkways to help guide visitors around the Downtown business district. The walkway between 46 and 48 Union Street S connecting to Market Street was named “Union-Market Passageway.” The archway installation is a continuation part of a project let by a committee of two City Council members, two Planning and Neighborhood Development staff members, and the directors of the Concord Downtown Development Corporation and the Cabarrus Arts Council. The first phase of this project included replacing faded murals in the Union-Market Passageway and the Bicentennial Parking lot. The passageway art was created by Charlotte artist Sharon Dowell, and commemorates several historic sites in Concord. Learn more about the mural project at concordnc.gov.

Dry weather conditions continue, drought management advisory group on alert
The City of Concord joined members of the Catawba-Wateree Drought Management Advisory Group today in more closely monitoring potential drought conditions in the area. Although not one of the public water suppliers in the Catawba River Basin, the City of Concord follows the group's drought stages as part of the Interbasin Transfer Agreement. The CW-DMAG entered Stage 0 of the Low Inflow Protocol (LIP) today, which alerts members to monitor conditions more closely. Below normal rainfall and above-average temperatures have dropped two of the three LIP drought indicators (triggers) to Stage 0. The LIP is the drought management plan major water users in the region employ to share responsibility and set priorities to conserve the limited water supply during drought conditions. The City's normal, responsible water use guidelines remain in place, including lawn irrigation using the City of Concord's water system only being permitted on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. Responsible water use all year, and particularly in periods without rain, helps us keep water supplies adequate and avoid more restrictive conditions. Visit
concordnc.gov/savethedrops for more information.
