Plymouth Avenue EDA
Also approved by the council Tuesday was an amendment of the Plymouth Avenue Economic Development Area.
According to Mark Brinson, community development director for the city, the Plymouth Avenue EDA consists of eight acres generally located south of Plymouth Avenue, east of Greene Road, west of Indiana Avenue and north of C.R. 36.
Brinson said the Plymouth Avenue EDA has long been recognized as an area with significant water and drainage issues in serious need of correcting.
Through the amended plan, additional infrastructure will reportedly be added to the area including water drainage, water detention, water retention and other facilities and infrastructure that improves drainage and water retention within the Plymouth EDA.
“The only purpose of this particular amendment is to add projects to the list of projects that we can do in the Plymouth Avenue Economic Development Area,” said city attorney Larry Barkes. “Projects to be added are water retention and drainage projects, which are not currently on the list of projects that we can do.”
