Council moves on Holiday Plaza access

Recommendation will close private drive

November 4, 2004

— The current Holiday Terrace has won out over a private drive as the preferred avenue for access into the Holiday Plaza shopping center.

The Kansas Department of Transportation had told the city the spacing between Holiday Terrace and the entrance to Holiday Plaza, between Citizens National Bank and Lansing Pharmacy, was too close to meet traffic safety goals of the Main Street System Enhancement Project and that one of the accesses needed to be closed.

After a lengthy discussion that involved business owners in Holiday Plaza, KDOT and the city's public works director, the Lansing City Council on Thursday unanimously opted to recommend that KDOT keep Holiday Terrace open.

Under the recommended option, KDOT would close the private drive between the bank and pharmacy. Access to the shopping center via the north would come off of Holiday Terrace and a to-be-constructed street running between the pharmacy and the Eye Center and Optical Shop.
