At Tuesday’s (April 9th) meeting of the New Albany Redevelopment Commission, board members will vote on a resolution taking final steps to acquire the Colonial Manor property on Charlestown Road. The board will vote on funding for the purchase of the property, and if approved, will then move to the City Council for final approval.
In early March, the City held a community input meeting regarding the future of the Colonial Manor property. Overwhelming feedback from the public encouraged a new type of development to occur here. Many different conceptual drafts were displayed at the public meeting – these drafts were not final design concepts in any way, and were there to encourage thoughts about the different types of developments that could occur at Colonial Manor.
“We are excited about the potential for the area,” stated Mayor Jeff Gahan. “Colonial Manor used to be an anchor for the neighborhood, and we are excited to move forward on the redevelopment of this property.”
