First Avenue Right-of-way Abandonment

Initial plans  for the Trigg Square mixed use development provided on-street parking only on Lula Street and First Avenue. No parking was proposed on Railroad Ave due to right-of-way limitations.
  
After working closely with the architect and developer, a new plan was proposed that provides on-street parking around the entire site. The proposed right-of-way abandonment allows 90-degree parking (29 spaces) to be located on the Railroad Avenue side of the site closest to the park. Ninety-degree parking is provided on Lula (37 spaces) and parallel parking on First Ave (12 spaces) where a more residential character/atmosphere is desired. Sidewalks will be provided on all road frontages. The Main Street parking configuration (53 spaces) is currently shown as 90-degree, but its ultimate configuration is to be determined. The total number of on-street parking spaces proposed is roughly equivalent to the number of spaces currently in the overflow lot. In the long run, there will also be on-site parking behind the future commercial development (33 spaces shown), as well. 

The right-of-way width of First Ave is 100’, meaning we will be left with 70’±. For comparison a typical subdivision street has a 50-foot right-of-way.
