Tract one zoned residential, the home being built on tract one is 15% completed. Tract one is not blighted. Tract two and three downzoning to M1 designation would be consistent with the existing park is something that Dean Realty committed in doing. He expressed concerns regarding 34th Street, stating that it is an issue regarding heavy trucks/heavy traffic. The street should have no more traffic than any other street in the area. It has been the position of Dean Reality that 34th Street should be abandoned. Tom Ruhl, was asked to do a blight study. He stated tract one is a compatible use and it will enhance the area. Access will be from Holly Street. Councilmember Bacchus hope that the neighorhood & Dean Realty would agree on the vacation of 34th Street.
