Opening of Three Park & Ride Lots and Rideshare Matching Program


Three Park & Ride lots will be available for public use starting Monday January 5, 2015. All three Park & Ride lots are located in Leland; one is located at Brunswick Forest in front of Lowe's grocery, one is located at Food Lion on Mt. Misery Rd near Hwy 74/76, and one is located at the new leland Town Hall. Signage has been erected to guide users to these lots. Each of the Park & Ride lots has a bus stop along Wave Transit's Brunswick Connector route and parking spaces specifically reserved for people who carpool, vanpool, or use public transportation. A rideshare matching program will also be available to match potential carpool candidates, and explore vanpool opportunities. To join the rideshare program, visit www.sharetheridenc.org to register and set up a profile. A profile includes information regarding work and home locations, work schedule, driver/passenger preferences, female/male preferences, and smoker/non-smoker preferences. This information is used to match potential carpool candidates with the same locations, schedules, and preferences. Information about available vanpools is also available on this website. These efforts are undertaken to re-establish the Transportation Demand Management (TDM) program in an effort to provide alternative modes of transportation and reliance on the single-occupancy vehicles. This was a high priority of Cape Fear Commutes 2035 Transportation Plan. The TDM Committee has developed a 10-year TDM plan to implement alternative modes of transportation in an effort to mitigate the growth of traffic congestion and provide enticing opportunities to get to and from work.

Brunswick Forest low water pressure and outages 12/18/14


The water consumers of the Town of Leland, in Brunswick Forest Subdivision from 3012 Cobden Ct and 1332 & 1336 Cape Fear National Dr are experiencing periods of low pressure and outages in the distribution due to the water main being damaged during construction. Periods of low or no pressure in the distribution system increases the potential for back siphonage and introduction of bacteria into the water system. 

Therefore, the Division of Water Resources advises that when water is restored consumers boil all water used for human consumption (including drinking, brushing,
teeth, washing dishes, and food preparation) or use bottled water.
 
Vigorous boiling for one (1) minute should kill any disease-causing organisms that may be present in the water.

This office is strongly urging the water consumers to conserve water whenever possible. This advisory remains in effect until further written notification is issued. This advisory issued on 12-18-2014 by: Jimmy Strickland, Public Utilities Director 910-332-4651
