PRVWSD Shoreline Meeting

At Monday's Shoreline committee meeting Mr. Craig Haskins, leasing agent for The Reservoir Square Shopping Center, asked the committee to extend their lease on a 1.4 acre parcel of land next to the Dollar General.  The area in yellow highlights the parcel.

The owners of the shopping center have the parcel leased but the terms specified that construction of a new building would begin by Dec. 31, 2008.  That didn't happen and the PRVWSD granted an extension to the construction deadline until Dec. 31, 2011. 

The owners are back asking for a second 3 year extension.

The committee discussed it and agreed to take up the matter at a later meeting.

One board member stated that he would have a difficult time supporting an extension and said if the vote were taken right then he would vote against granting it.  

A second board member told Mr. Haskins the PRVWSD had received numerous complaints about the state of repair of the shopping center.  Mr. Haskins said that more work is planned for the shopping center including patching potholes in the parking lot.

The board will likely take some action on the extension at their November meeting.

So they have replaced the facade on the majority of the building, while ignoring the parking lot and the former Jitney Premiere building. The place is getting vandalized and they had to have seen it since they placed the permit inside the front door of Jitney. This is getting ridiculous.

At least there is still covered parking at the pumping station!

Why extend lease to build a new building when they can't lease or maintain the existing buildings? Property has been an eyesore while unused.
