Council to receive Main Street project update

October 20, 2005

Lansing City Council members will receive an update on what's taken place and what's in store in terms of the Main Street System Enhancement Project.

The $18.9 million Kansas Department of Transportation project, which is scheduled to get under way late this year, will add a fifth lane to Main Street from Connie Street to Gilman Road.

Already one business has closed and another has announced its intent to relocate because of the project. The 7-Eleven store at 501 N. Main St., closed late last month because the project was taking out its gasoline pumps. And owners of Babe and Grayce's Antiquables, 112 S. Main St., said the project would take out too much of their parking so they were looking to relocate.

John Young, the city's Public Works director, will present the update to council members.

Here's the council's agenda:

Consent agenda:

¢ Consider minutes from the Oct. 6 council meeting.

Regular agenda:

¢ Present Lorraine Gluch, assistant in Economic Development/Convention and Visitors Bureau with the city's Employee of the Quarter award.

¢ Hear Mayor Kenneth Bernard proclaim October "Domestic Violence Awareness Month."

¢ Listen to the Lansing Veterans of Foreign Wars present their Police Officer of the Year award.

¢ Hear an update on the Main Street System Enhancement Project.

¢ Consider an ordinance rezoning Lots 7 and 8 of Gambles Replat. The lots, adjoining Lansing Lumber, would be rezoned from Light Industrial to Duplex Residential. The Lansing Planning Commission recommended the rezoning at its Sept. 21 meeting.

¢ Consider an exception to the fence ordinance for the property at 1233 De Soto Road.

¢ Hear reports from city department heads, the city administrator and council members.

¢ Adjourn.
