A review of the proposed Tobacco Heritage Trail Extension project grant and a public hearing on a request from Mid-Atlantic Broadband Communities Corporation to close and vacate a public alley within the boundaries of the SOVA Innovation Center are two items on the agenda for the monthly meeting of South Boston Town Council on Monday.
Monday’s meeting is set to get underway at 7 p.m. at council chambers on Yancey Street, with the first order of business being recognition by council of Sept. 17-23 as Constitution Week.
Also Monday night, town staff is expected to give a review of the proposed Tobacco Heritage Trail extension project grant, with the general public receiving an opportunity to comment on the application.
Council is scheduled to consider a resolution supporting the project following the public meeting and consider granting Tom Raab, town manager, the authority to execute the agreement.
Council then is scheduled to hold a public hearing to receive citizen comment on a request from Mid-Atlantic Broadband Communities Corporation to close and vacate a publicly dedicated alley lying within property recently acquired by MBC for the new Microsoft SOVA Innovation Hub, which fronts Wilborn Avenue.
MBC is requesting that a right-of-way of variable width for 336.52-feet (4,421 square-feet), lying from Wilborn Avenue northeast to the intersection of another 20-foot alley be vacated.
Council is then expected to appoint a board of viewers to visit the site and make a recommendation, before considering their report and receiving comments from affected property owners at its next meeting.
If the request is approved, a certified copy of the ordinance of vacation will be recorded as deeds are recorded in the Halifax County Circuit Court.
Two other items are on council’s agenda for Monday, the first an appointment to the Lake Country Development Corporation Board of Directors followed by a citizen comment period.
