August 14th BOC Meeting Recap

On Tuesday August 14, 2018, the Waxhaw Board of Commissioners conducted both a work session and our regularly scheduled business meeting.

During the work session the Board of Commissioners received updates and discussed two important topics:

  • Chris Plate, Executive Director, Monroe Union County Economic Development, shared a study conducted by Wingate University and its application to Waxhaw and the surrounding region. The discussion centered on Waxhaw’s large tax mix imbalance, and its real impact on our ability to provide necessary services.
  • Staff shared updates on our street maintenance work, sidewalk projects, parking needs in downtown, and an update on the pedestrian improvements for downtown. The discussion on street maintenance centered on the advanced techniques used by our public works team to ensure a maximum life of our large network. Additional discussion centered on the significant costs facing Waxhaw in the near future to maintain our large street and sidewalk network.

At the regular meeting, the Board of Commissioners accomplished the following:

  • Approved an ordinance update, as part of our ordinance modernization efforts, on Waxhaw’s parking of recreational vehicles and trailers;
  • Accepted a grant from the State of North Carolina for improvements to the Downtown Skate Park
  • Began a public hearing on the development of an Office and Medical Office building on Cuthbertson Road. The hearing will be continued at the August 28 Board Meeting.
  • Accepted withdraw of a voluntary annexation request of a 12 acre parcel of land on Providence Road.
  • Approved revised meeting schedule. Please check for the latest meeting schedule

During the meeting the Board recognized Jimmy Fowler of Parks & Recreation Department for his 5 Year Service Award with the Town.

The week of August 5-12 Waxhaw outdid itself. Between National Night Out, the Back to School Bash and the Princess Coronation for Mackenzie Lynn Barron, Waxhaw came together and put on one awesome demonstration of what a community can be, and what often is. There were many neighborhoods, businesses, organizations and individuals that were a part of this. This would not have happened without the efforts of the community. A special thank you to our Police, Parks, Recreation and Events Team, and our Volunteer Fire Department. The love of our community, of Waxhaw, is evident in their work. Their ability to embrace and include the larger community, makes it all the more special and demonstrates the importance and value of what they do for our community.

Thank you to those that attended in person and to those that view via our Town YouTube Channel. If you have any additional questions, please contact

Steve Maher

Mayor of Waxhaw
