GRANITE QUARRY — The Granite Quarry Board of Aldermen will hear updates on several ongoing projects when it convenes for its August meeting at 7 p.m. Monday at Town Hall, 143 N. Salisbury Ave.

Through its participation with the Carolina Thread Trail, the town has received a $50,000 check from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Community Foundation that will go toward the purchase of easements and construction of approximately 3,200 linear feet of new sidewalk in Granite Quarry.

The town also has received loan approval from F&M Bank for $350,000 at a fixed rate of 2.74 percent over seven years. The loan is for a water line to serve a proposed subdivision, The Village at Granite, off Faith Road.

The water line will be constructed along the Gildan access road now under construction.

Aldermen will discuss the boundaries, expected to be the town limits, for the urban archery hunting season, which will run in Granite Quarry from Jan. 9 to Feb. 13, 2016. The town received approval April 10 to participate in the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission’s urban archery program.

Aldermen also will discuss downtown revitalization. Granite Quarry plans a community kickoff event from 6-7:30 p.m. Sept. 15 at Town Hall in which it hopes to receive residents’ and business owners’ input into what a revitalization plan should include.

In other business Monday, aldermen will receive an update on sidewalk construction and retail development, consider a statewide emergency management mutual aid agreement, talk about the town’s credit card policy, hear committee reports and have a closed session to discuss the vacant town manager’s position.
