1st Avenue Parking Decks, Helipad Hours and West Elm/Corson Street Apartments

There is a lot on the agenda during the Borough Council meeting on Wednesday night at 7:00 p.m. Last week we began hearing about a potential issue with the continued use of the parking deck along East 1st Avenue (not the top metered spots, but the lower level spots after 5:00 p.m.). I really do not understand the whole dispute, but it appears that the owner would like the Borough to pay more to use those spots after hours and that is somehow tied in with the recent repairs that closed the upper deck for a month. So now there is the exploration to move the public use of a private garage after 5:00 p.m. to the garage that is along West 1st Avenue.  Both parking decks are marked with a red “x” in the above photo.  This issue is on the agenda.

We also hear that the hours for the helipad will be discussed, along with the proposed apartments along West Elm at Corson Street.

As we previously reported, Borough Council will also be discussing the use of Community Development Block Grant that will allow qualifying residents to make repairs to their homes.

The meeting will be held at Borough Hall at West 8th and Fayette.
