Harley Clarke Meeting Monday 5/18 7:00 pm Civic Center, 2100 Ridge

On Monday, May 18 at 7 p.m.. the Harley Clarke Citizens’ Committee will host a workshop to hear from presenters about several options for the future of the property.
The workshop is open to all residents and will be held in the Parasol Room on the 4th floor of the Civic Center at 2100 Ridge Avenue.

They include:

  1. Renovating the building for City use (TBD).
  2. Demolishing the building and redeveloping the site as parkland.
  3. Selling the building and allowing it to be renovated for a commercial use, such as a hotel or event space.
  4. Selling the building and allowing the site to be redeveloped under R1 (residential) zoning.
  5. Selling or gifting the building to an organization that would renovate and preserve it for public cultural and/or educational use.

Central St. parking plans discussed at three city meetings

City staff presented a range of proposed options to meet Central St. parking needs in a flurry of short-notice meetings over a 48 hour period this week.  Presentations were made at:

  • Transportation & Parking Committee 6:00 PM Wed. 4/22
  • Economic Development Committee 7:30 PM Wed. 4/22
  • 6th Ward meeting 7:00 PM Thurs. 4/23

Packets documenting the two committee agendas appeared on-line about 24 hours before the committee meetings.  CSNA learned about these items shortly after 1:00 PM Wed. and sent out a notice alerting our mailing list later that afternoon.

Apparently the public was not the only interested party in the dark on these plans.  CSNA also heard that some committee members were unaware of what was being proposed.
