Converting Private Residential Streets to Publicly Maintained Streets
North Carolina General Statutes allow cities to create Municipal Service Districts. Municipal Service District (MSD) designation provides an equitable method for funding special improvements to public right-of-way areas because property owners share in the cost. The following neighborhoods are included in the Municipal Service District:
- Carpenter Park
- The Gables
- Huntington Park
- Kelton II
- Kelton Square
The MSD went into effect on July 1, 2013, at which point residents of the neighborhoods listed above were taxed at an additional tax rate on top of the ad valorem tax rate for the Town. The additional MSD tax rate is $0.10 per $100 in property valuation, which was approved with the budget adoption on June 25, 2013.
The Town has received final pavement structure assessment and recommendation reports from Geotechnologies Inc., and staff has generated preliminary cost estimates based on the consultant’s recommendations. Additional sub-surface investigation is required to determine depths to utilities for which staff has received bids from contractors to perform the work. The work was completed at the end of 2013. Staff has discussed the schedule and funding source options for the repairs.
The Town of Morrisville has contracted with Ruston Paving to perform pavement, curb & gutter, and sidewalk repairs on the public streets throughout the Carpenter Park Condominium community. The Town has given the contractor a notice to proceed, and we have been notified that they intend to start working on or about Monday, December 3rd in the Carpenter Park Condominium community.
The work will consist of 3 phases, phase 1 will be concrete repair work (curb & gutter and sidewalk) Monday December 3 thru December 21 and take approximately 15 business days to complete. During this time the contractor will place orange cones at the areas where the repairs will take place, residents that park where the orange cones are should make alternative parking arrangements to allow for the repairs to be completed. Additionally, the concrete and pavement repair work is located intermittently throughout the site as indicated by orange cones which may restrict drive isle and parking beginning at 7:30 AM.
Phase 2A and 2B will begin on or about February 18, 2019 thru March 15, 2019 an area map of phases 2 A and 2 B will be provided prior to February 18th this work will consist of milling the existing asphalt and pavement overlay. During this time no parking will be permitted in the coned off areas shown on the area map. All vehicles should be removed from the coned off parking areas by 7:30AM. Any vehicle left in the way may be towed. Residents should expect some delays and inconveniences while active construction is occurring.
Once the asphalt paving of the entire area is complete, striping and clean-up will occur. Additional days are included in the event unforeseen issues are uncovered during construction or weather delays occur.
**Note: All date ranges above are approximate and may vary based on weather, sub-surface conditions, and other unforeseen circumstances. Inclement weather could delay the contractors schedule, however they plan to re-start work as soon as possible.
