Abandonment of Right-of-Way - Trigg Square & Lula Street
Trigg Square is under contract for a mixed use development which includes retail/restaurant space fronting Main Street and town-home development on the remainder of the property.
Concept plans have been prepared and submitted for preliminary review and the preferred plan is one that, not only provides parking along Main Street, but also interior to the site behind the commercial strip fronting Main. In order to more efficiently develop the site, the 20-foot alleys that crisscross the site and 25 feet of Lula Streets' 100-foot right-of-way is proposed to be abandoned.
Not only will parking be provided along the front and rear of the commercial portion of the site, the developer is in agreement to provide 90-degree parking along First Avenue and Lula Street. This will help accommodate increased activity in Old Town by providing more convenient parking within easy walking distance to the commercial activity.
Attached is the conceptual site plan. Also attached is a survey showing the former Public Works site that is under contract, the alleys that cross the site and the right-of-way of Lula.
