2021 Triangle East Chamber Legislative Agenda

 

TRANSPORTATION:

  • Commuter Rail to Selma from Raleigh at the minimum. This is needed for many reasons: first to allow our under-employed, low-income sector to have better access to employment; next to create easier access to expand our areas’ "workforce shed" for current and future workforce needs.
  • Don't wait for the full blown 10-year "Cadillac" of commuter rail, work with NCDOT to expand Piedmont service on existing infrastructure now. We cannot afford to wait 10 years.
  • Update the Countywide Transportation Plan in 2021 and implement the findings.
  • Fund Transportation, both Public and Commuter, through available funding mechanisms that will then qualify the County for Matching Federal Funding.

 

INFRASTRUCTURE:

    • Study a change to a County/Regional sewer/water system.
      • Act on the Study's findings.
    • Support the update and adoption of a new County-wide Land Use Plan & Implementation.
    • Support the recommendations from the BroadBand study with quick implementation.
    • Support the study of a County-wide Stormwater Management Plan to avoid multiple duplications.  
  • Support the continued development of a parks and recreation system for the County.

 

COMMUNITY SPECIFIC:

  • Support and pursue a stand-alone Zip Code for the Cleveland Community of Johnston County.
