RECOMMENDATION:

 

recommendation

That the Eastside Redevelopment Board (ERB) recommend approval of a memorandum of agreement for shared parking with Mount Canaan Missionary Baptist Church to utilize the church’s overflow parking facility located at 1521 North 6th Avenue to provide for overflow parking for the General “Chappie” James Museum and Flight Academy.

end

 

SUMMARY:

                     

On May 8, 2017, the CRA approved acquisition of the Brownfield property at 1700 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive.  The project anticipated demolition of the former Walker Gas Station at the location and construction of an overflow surface parking lot for overflow use by the General Chappie James Museum and Flight Academy. 

 

Recently, an alternative option for overflow parking has been identified which would maximize available parking space located one block from the Museum and Flight Academy. Mt. Canaan Missionary Baptist Church has agreed to permit utilization of its overflow parking facility to provide for overflow parking generated by visitation of the General “Chappie” James Museum and Flight Academy. To effectuate the agreement, a memorandum of agreement for shared parking is required. A letter of agreement and location map are attached for consideration.
