Medical office gets initial New Albany council OK

Paving bids due Tuesday



But the plan was approved on second reading with the 83 parking spots included. 

Other council members suggested the addition of a turning lane on Green Valley Road at the Daisy Lane intersection be included in the project and footed by the developer. 

The attorney speaking on behalf of ONC said the developer would need to see a copy of the plan to determine if it’s feasible. 

Access to the facility would only be from Daisy Lane. Some council members said the intersection is already plagued by traffic backups at certain parts of the day and that a turning lane would be beneficial. 

Wood said he would provide the council with a rough design of a turning lane on Green Valley Road in time for the July 1 meeting. 



The city held a pre-bid meeting this week with contractors interested in submitting proposals for the 2013 paving campaign. 

“The bids are due in Tuesday,” Street Department Commissioner Mickey Thompson said. “Obviously we’ll take those under advisement to see which is the best bid.” 

In May, the council appropriated $2 million for paving this year. 

Thompson asked council members submit paving-request lists to him soon so that they could be incorporated in the resurfacing plan. 

He said he’d received three lists from council members as of Thursday.
