GRANITE QUARRY — Town Manager Phil Conrad plans to give the Granite Quarry Board of Aldermen an update Monday on the town’s downtown study.

Aldermen meet at 7 p.m. at Town Hall.

Other downtown items on the board’s agenda include a recommendation from the Revitalization Team to purchase downtown corridor banners for $5,000.

Aldermen also will be discussing a request the town is making to the N.C. Department of Transportation for street improvements, aimed at bringing intersections throughout the town up to Americans with Disabilities Act standards.

The town would like to install ramps at 18 different intersections, representing a total of 39 ramps. The request to the DOT seeks funding and participation in the state’s Transportation Alternatives Program.

In other business Monday, the board:

• Will make a zoning map correction for property in the vicinity of Granite Place, where the State Employees Credit Union has been interested in land as a possible site for a new branch.

• Will consider bids for the patching and paving of several Granite Quarry streets, including Chasestone Court, Railroad Street, Sycamore Street, North Walnut Street, Kluttz Street, Aspen Avenue, Whitney Court, Meadowwood Court and Oak Hollow.

• Is expected to set a public hearing for 6:45 p.m. Sept. 6 for the voluntary annexation of Faith Road property and a related water-sewer easement.

• Will recognize Franklin Merrell of the Salisbury chapter of the N.C. Sons of the American Revolution.
