Public meeting set on new design for Locust Lane area

February 07, 2002

Westminster will hold a public meeting at 9 a.m. today to review designs for the Locust Lane shopping area on Main Street.

The plans to update the pedestrian mall have been altered to include a new parking deck on the Longwell Avenue parking lot since they were last reviewed in public meetings.

The Common Council is scheduled to vote on a design for Locust Lane and the Longwell parking deck at its meeting Feb. 25.

Locust Lane was created in the 1970s as a shopping area and pedestrian walkway from the Longwell Avenue parking lots to East Main Street.

The city, which owns the Locust Lane area, intends to redevelop it to help its seven stores meet accessibility requirements.

The meeting will take place at Westminster City Hall in the Common Council chambers.

It will be postponed if Carroll County public schools are delayed or canceled because of inclement weather.
