City Council Approves 2 Resolutions Relating To AIM Center Supportive Housing On E. Main Street

Tuesday, February 18, 2020

The City Council on Tuesday night approved two resolutions relating to a plan by the AIM Center to construct 60 units of supportive housing at 1815 E. Main St.

One resolution lets city officials engage in talks with AIM Center officials on a donation of city-owner property for the project.

Another has the city moving for brownfield designation for the site.

Councilman Anthony Byrd said the moves do not mean the council has given final approval for the project, that is opposed by some neighbors. He said AIM Center officials asked that the vote not be deferred in order to stay in line for certain grant funding that is time sensitive.

City Attorney Phil Noblett said the city needs to go after the brownfield designation no matter the future use of the site.
