BEATRICE – Another government step has been cleared in a plan to build an extended-stay hotel in north Beatrice. The plat of the new MyPlace Hotel was approved by Beatrice elected leaders, Monday night, along with vacating a couple of lots in the North Commerce Addition.
:09 “vacating that”
No exact timetable was given Monday night for completion of the multi-story project, though Tempelmeyer says a spring construction is anticipated. The project will go before the Community Redevelopment Authority in early February, for potential use of tax increment financing. Earlier Monday night, the Planning and Zoning Commission approved the plat.
In a second plan, the City of Beatrice will be getting rid of one of two roads, both named Stockman’s Street. A plat submitted by TRY-77…Beatrice 77 Livestock Sales…involves vacating parts of Stockman’s Street and North 7th.
:27 “off our books”
The city council approved conveying the two street segments to TryCorp., Inc, which will own and maintain the area. The plan also was approved earlier in the day by the planning and zoning commission. Two mayoral appointments to that commission were approved by city council members, Monday night…Mike Honea and Rodney Aden.
Monday night, the city council also approved a resolution on a road that has been of concern to Gage County officials. The city council declared it approves the county board vacating a part of Juniper Road, which has been washed away by years of floods on the Big Blue River. The road is now on private property.
The Beatrice City Council approved prohibiting parking in the main lot of the Beatrice Public Library after 11 p.m., seven days a week. The action was taken to address a problem with loitering. The city is also prohibiting public use at any time, of a staff parking area along the east side of the library.
