Leasing of City Parking Lots located at S. Main (@ Pine) and S. Main (between W. Cubbon & McFadden) - <br />Both of these City parking lots are located in Heninger Park Neighborhood - Objection to the leasing of these <br />City Parking Lots & an objection to putting them into a Surplus Land Act or such allocation is due to record of <br />lack <br />of maintenance of such properties in the City AND the lack of staff & teacher & parent & visitor parking at <br />Franklin <br />Elementary School AND the need for free off street day time parking with no street sweeping days for <br />residents, <br />schools, shoppers. <br />2. Peebler Fund Capital Project Revenue - Community stakeholders would like opportunity for a final approval <br />of Street Furniture, Street Lighting, Historic South Main Business District Archway improvements, etc. <br />3. Underground Smart Fiber @ 1 st Phase Utilities - Residents and S. Main Street neighborhoods are requesting <br />purchase & installation of Smart Fiber - that MUST be accomplished at during 1st Phase, per Public Works <br />Agency <br />4. South Main Street residents and neighborhoods have a vision for a unique NICHE IDENTITY for South <br />Main, <br />also known by Historic Highway Old Route 101-A. An Architectural Survey, Adaptive Reuse Overlay, <br />Preservation <br />and Rehabilitation of existing buildings and uses are being looked at a path to temper new development on <br />South Main Street. <br />
