Developers, Bouldin NA agree on street vacation

Monday, June 15, 2015 by Jo Clifton

PSW Real Estate, the Bouldin Creek Neighborhood Association, the Bouldin Creek Condominium Homeowners Association and two property owners have signed an agreement related to a street vacation and are requesting that City Council take action. Back in March, Council postponed action on the vacation of parts of three streets close to South 1st Street in order to allow construction of 10,000 square feet of office space, 30 condominium units and 22 single-family detached houses. According to an agreement signed by the parties on Thursday and distributed to Council by lobbyist Glen Coleman, PSW and developers Leslie Moore and Magdalena Rood will dedicate easements between South 1st and South 2nd streets to create a new drive with public access. Each developer will design her respective projects to take vehicle access from the new drive and close curb cuts on South 1st Street. But South 2nd Street will remain open for public access even though it is being vacated as a city street. The condo association agreed to withdraw its previous opposition to the right-of-way vacation case for South 2nd Street on the condition that the street remain open for public access and be accessible for pedestrians and vehicles going into and out of the property. The neighborhood association stated that it was withdrawing its opposition to the right-of-way case involving South 2nd Street as well as an unnamed street and an associated alley between South 1st and South 2nd. However, it wishes to continue negotiations related to a second right-of-way case involving Christopher Street. The parties are asking Council to take action on the right-of-way case members agree on at Council’s June 18 meeting. Negotiations will continue between PSW, other parties and the Parks and Recreation Department regarding access to existing parkland, according to the agreement.
