Expansion of two organizations’ properties will be considered by the Conway City Council at its meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday.
• Faulkner County Day School is asking for a conditional use permit to allow restricted office with adjacent parking for its property at 222 Ash St.
As it is part of the Old Conway Overlay district, the parking lot design and any expansion must be approved by the Historic District Commission.
• Salem Place Nursing and Rehabilitation Center is asking to expand on its property at 940 Carolyn Lane.
The Commissioners stipulated that "the southern 50 feet zoned R-1 may not be used as a nursing home or for any improvements that serve the nursing home facilities. It shall be maintained as a green space buffer in perpetuity."
At its Feb. 19 meeting, the Planning Commission gave approval for both expansions.
The Council will consider a financial arrangement with Faulkner County for updating Geographic Information System (GIS) at a payment of $14,000 for GIS updates and map updates to be paid quarterly.
An ordinance appropriating $5,000 for a Conway Market Salary Study will be considered.
The study will evaluate the City’s pay competitiveness with comparable cities.
The finance department is asking permission to dispose of several items in the city’s inventory, with each affected department head — Sanitation, Police and Fire — deciding how the property will be removed: "Including on-line auction, training usage or simply disposing of each item."
Among those included are a 1999 Jeep Cherokee and a 1997 Ford Expedition from the police department, an ice machine the Fire Department wants to donate to the Beaverfork VFD; and some equipment the Sanitation Department will use for trade-ins.
At a 5:30 p.m. committee meeting, the Council will discuss the proposed Blaney Hill Outdoor Recreational Park.
