URA Board of Directors vote on several actions in monthly meeting

Sandra Griffin the Executive Director of the Urban Renewal Agency introduced three topics that needed the approval of the agency’s board of directors during their monthly meeting Tuesday.

The first topic addressed was to pay the taxes to the state land commission for the old Crown Motel property. This action was approved unanimously.

Next on the agenda to be voted upon was the proposal to approve a 5% to 6.5% base fee of the construction cost for multi-family components for 6th & main St in contract with Taggart Architects. Griffin further explained the cost of these additional services.

That proposal was approved without contest.

The last item on the agenda to need a vote was discussing the professional services agreement between URA board of directors and The Generator. The agreement is for the identification and placement of businesses into commercial properties. That agreement was also approved to go forward.
