The Village of Pleasantville is moving ahead with plans to turn the recently acquired Lane plumbing property into a parking lot.
The village officially hired AAA Carting to demolish and grade the property for $49,900 at Monday’s board meeting. The village expects the project to be completed by the end of August.
During Monday’s work session, the village met Jeff Contelmo of Insite a Carmel-based engineering firm, to discuss how the parking lot should be laid out. Discussions included how to make Cooley Street a through street, and whether to make it one-way or two-way. The village expects the parking lot to have 50 spaces.
“We’re looking at how the road might work if we went straight through,” Mayor Peter Scherer said. “This way you could have another way to circulate.”
Once the village settles on a design for the parking lot, they will begin putting out bids to get it completed.
“This is an important project for us,” Scherer said. “We want it to go as quickly as possible.”
