Demolition of Travel Inn on Tuesday's Commission Agenda
Tuesday night, the Coweta County Board of Commissioners will be considering a bid for the demolition of the Travel Inn, located at 1160 U.S. Hwy. 29 South.
Awarding a bid for asbestos abatement and the demolition of hotel, which has been vacant for a few years, is on the agenda for the meeting, which begins at 6 p.m. Commission meetings are held in the commission chambers on Perry Street.
The dilapidated hotel sits within the right-of-way needed for the upcoming work on the intersection of Pine Road, U.S. 29 South and Hwy. 16 East.
Other items on the agenda include:
• Voting to accept the “preferred alternate” for the intersection improvements at Old Corinth, Smokey, and Belk Roads. A public information open house was recently held on the intersection improvements, and visitors overwhelmingly preferred the plan that would align Belk Road and Meadow Sweet Way to a plan that wouldn’t change Meadow Sweet, which serves a subdivision.
• A request to temporarily close Haynie and J.W. Thompson roads.
• Recognition of Assistant Fire Chief Jimmy Gantt.
