Buckingham, 51 East Floral Avenue, addressed the Council, <br />stating in part that the proposed improvement of the street will narrow <br />the street, making it unsafe for his tenants to park. He requested that <br />the subject improvements be held in abeyance"until the median strip has <br />been narrowed as contemplated. <br /> <br />The Director of Public Works advised in part that it is 25 feet from the <br />median strip to Dr. Buckingham's property, allowing 10 feet for parking <br />and 15 feet for vehicular traffic; that the proposed improvements are <br />basically in the interest of pedestrian traffic; that inasmuch as more <br />than 50% of the easterly side of the subject street is presently improved, <br />the Street Superintendent has the prerogative, upon consent of the Council, <br />to improve the remainder of that side of the street. That the curb will <br />be at a permanent location. <br /> <br />No one else desiring to be heard, and no written protests having <br />received, Councilman Phillips MOVED that the hearing be closed. <br />seconded by Councilman Balser and carried unanimously. <br /> <br />been <br />Motion <br /> <br />Discussion ensued. It was stated in part that the narrowing of the <br />median strip would widen the subject street; that consideration is being <br />given to removing the median strip entirely in the subject section, <br />probably during or after the time the freeway is constructed.
