Please note that this figure includes all costs associated with the project such as planning and design, utility relocation, consultant fees, construction, permits and landscaping.

The Charlotte Storm Water Services (CSWS) project team will manage the Addison / Deveron Project through the phases listed below.  Specific work is conducted during each phase while an emphasis is made on public involvement throughout the entire project.
Planning Phase (Completed June 2002)
City staff worked with a consultant to plan the improvements in the Addison/Deveron Area.  These plans were based on citizen calls to 704-336-RAIN, responses to the neighborhood questionnaire and results of the storm event models performed by the consultant. 
The consultant has analyzed the problems and proposed several alternative solutions of which CSWS determined the final alternatives for the project.   A public meeting was held on December 11, 2001 at Randolph Middle School to present the findings of the planning study to the neighborhood and gather citizen input. 
Design Phase (Completed December 2004)
Detailed construction drawings and exhibits were prepared for every property that is affected by improvements.  During this phase, many details must be addressed including the determination of specific pipe sizes and alignments, stream widths and lining types, inlet sizes and locations, utility relocations, tree removal and easement widths and locations. 
A public meeting was held  on Tuesday, December 9, 2003 to present the preliminary design to the neighborhood and to assist in starting the property easement/acquisition phase of the project.
Permitting Phase (Completed June 2004)
During the permitting phase, the required water quality permits and certifications were obtained from County, State and Federal agencies.  Permit applications were prepared and meetings were conducted with the NC Division of Environment and Natural Resources and the US Army Corps of Engineers.
Property Easement/Acquisition Phase (Completed December 2004)
The City's real estate staff works directly with affected citizens to acquire Storm Drainage Easements (SDEs).  The City requests that affected property owners grant SDEs to provide the City access to their property to perform needed improvements and future maintenance. 
The project schedule for this phase depends almost entirely on the responsiveness of property owners.  Timely responses from citizens and donations of SDEs will expedite the repairs.  The bid phase will begin after all easements are acquired.

Bid Phase (Completed April 2005)
During the bid phase, the final plans will be circulated to qualified contractors for a competitive bidding process.  By state law, the lowest responsible bidder is awarded the construction contract.
Construction Phase (Completed May 2007)
This project is currently in the Warranty Phase.  There will be several field walks to monitor the contractor's work prior to accepting the project as complete.
