The Conway City Council will discuss condemning and razing a structure, donating softball field lights and entering a pipeline crossing agreement during its regular meeting at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in the Judge “Jack” Roberts District Court Building.
The meeting will be preceded by a 5:30 committee meeting regarding the city’s roundabout study and an update from MEMS. Both meetings are open to the public.
The council will only meet once a month in May, June, July and August as aldermen voted on during the April meeting.
Aldermen will review the six intersections — College Avenue and Farris Road; College Avenue and Prince Street; Prince Street and Country Club Lane; Prince Street and Hogan Lane; Salem Road and Irby Drive; and Tyler Street and Salem Road — included in the Roundabout Feasilibilty Report during the committee meeting.
The council in January 2018 approved hiring McClelland Consulting Engineers, Inc. “to analyze the existing and proposed conditions at six existing intersections” for $35,000. The study started in the last quarter of 2018 and concluded near the end of January 2019.
The feasibility study looked at safety; congestion, which they referred to as control delay in the report; and utility, right-of-way and construction considerations, rating how difficult and costly it would be to construct a roundabout at each location by using data McClelland collected during the study.
During its regular meeting, the council will discuss condemning and razing s structure at 217 Davis Street for the Code Enforcement Department.
The property is one of three where the city on May 13 had cleared of debris following violations dating back to 2009. The same family owns all three properties.
Aldermen will also vote on a resolution to donate a softball field light system from Fifth Avenue Park to the city go Guy and discuss entering a pipeline crossing agreement with Union Pacific Railroad Company for the Department of Sanitation.
