De­vel­oper ex­tends park­ing priv­i­leges

The Advance of Bucks County - - NEWTOWN AREA -

De­vel­oper Al­lan Smith has agreed to al­low the bor­ough the use of his park­ing lot be­hind the Wine and Spir­its Store at least through 2013 with the un­der­stand­ing that at some point in 2013 he may have to uti­lize some of the spa­ces for con­trac­tors and fenc­ing dur­ing con­struc­tion of the new Wine and Spir­its Store. When that oc­curs, Coun­cil Pres­i­dent Bob Walker said park­ing would be made avail­able be­hind the for­mer Stock­burger build­ing to make up for the num­ber of park­ing spa­ces he would be tak­ing away from the lot be­hind the Wine and Spir­its Store. The bor­ough uses the lot for per­mit park­ing from Mon­day to Satur­day. “We will still be able to have T4 or T5 park­ing spa­ces go­ing into 2013 for per­mit park­ing,” said Walker. “Be­yond that, we’ll take it as it comes but we will have per­mit park­ing avail­able prob­a­bly through 2013.” Walker added that “the fu­ture de­vel­op­ment of the prop­erty will be the driv­ing force as to how per­mit park­ing will oc­cur, whether we’ll have a need for per­mit park­ing or whether a garage fa­cil­ity or other park­ing fa­cil­i­ties will be able to ab­sorb the park­ing needs of the bor­ough be­yond 2013.” The site will even­tu­ally be re­de­vel­oped as part of plans for the mixed use Steeple View project. Plans in­clude de­vel­op­ment of of­fice, res­i­den­tial and re­tail uses on land lo­cated be­tween Cen­tre Av­enue and the for­mer Stock­burger prop­erty off of South State Street.
