North Augusta City Council to vote on Riverside Village parking meters, hear update on park

February 4, 2019

North Augustans may be seeing parking meters in Riverside Village in the future, according to a North Augusta City Council agenda.

A resolution authorizing the purchase of parking meters in Riverside Village is one of four resolutions to be voted on during the regular Council meeting Monday night.

Also related to Riverside Village, during the study session Council will be hearing updates on both the financial side of Riverside Village, as well as an update on Riverside Park, a city park slated to be built along the river near SRP Park. The park would have an amphitheater and have Greeneway access. Charlie Hall with Toole Engineers said during an August study session the park would be about 2 1/2 acres, and the current projected price tag is around $6 million.

Council will also be voting on a resolution “to approve the settlement of issues related to the provision of fire services in Aiken County involving the city and Belvedere Fire District,” according to the agenda.

In a meeting in late 2018, the city and North Augusta Department of Public Safety met with the Belvedere Fire District and came up with a map defining each agency’s coverage area.

City Council will also be considering a resolution that would authorize the City Administrator “provide a coordination letter of interest to Georgia Department of Transportation for potential additional funding for the scheduled Georgia Avenue bridge replacement to include pedestrian/bicycle and iconic design features,” the agenda says.

Council will also vote on a resolution to allocate funding for sidewalk projects.

Copies of the four resolutions were not posted online as part of the agenda.

City Council will meet Monday evening at 6 p.m. on the third floor of the municipal building at 100 Georgia Ave. The regular meeting will be at 7 p.m. in the same place.
