Input sought on tobacco warehouse conversion

SoVaNow.com / January 14, 2013
South Boston Town Council will host public hearings tonight at 7 p.m. in Council Chambers of Yancey Street. Among the items up for public comment is a proposal to transform the former New Brick Warehouse property into a downtown family housing complex.

Comments will be sought on a request for a special use application to allow the New Brick Warehouse property to be used as a multiple family dwelling in an Adaptive Reuse District. The permit is being sought by Rehab Development and Destination Downtown South Boston.

Also, a public hearing will be held on a request to vacate portions of First, Second and Jefferson Streets in order to accommodate the parking for the proposed development of the New Brick Warehouse.

Also being sought is an ordinance creating a residential parking zone on Jefferson Street, which will provide for parking permits for the housing project.

Council is also expected to receive a report from its three-member Board of Viewers detailing their findings on the request by Mae Reed to vacate 197 feet of the unopened right-of-way known as Prospect Avenue, which lies north of College Street. Mrs. Reed has told Council she needs the land to place a garage there.

Council is also expected to approve its meeting schedule for 2013, which is currently set for the second Monday evening of each month unless that day is a holiday.
