The Conway City Council will consider a purchase for affordable housing in the Pine Street neighborhood as well waiving bids for a street signal and an agreement with Arkansas Game and Fish Commission for asphalt work during its regular meeting at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in the District Court Building.
The meeting will not be preceded by a committee meeting and is open to the public.
Aldermen will consider spending $22,000 to acquire land at 1317 Factory St.
The city plans to demolish the structure on the property, which will be paid for with a Community Development Block Grant, and use the land to meet the design intent of the Pine Street neighborhood project.
The city and Old Conway Village LP (developer) plan to add up to 44 new, affordable family dwellings, according to documents in the agenda packet.
Aldermen will also consider paying up to $160,000 up front to repair and maintain asphalt at the north and south boat ramp access areas at Brewer Lake with the understanding that the AGFC will request full reimbursement from an Arkansas Department of Transportation grant using marine fuel tax.
Aldermen will also consider waiving bids for two trailer-mounted traffic signal systems from VER-MAC, which Conway Corporatiom uses, to "ensure all systems will collaborate."
The signals would cost a total of $54,600.
