The City of Lilburn will move its Public Works Department to an existing facility on Lilburn Indstrial Way, opening up property across from City Park for future development.
In approximately two months, city public works, fleet maintenance, and police impound storage will relocate to two acres at 4428 Lilburn Industrial Way. The property is under contract for $715,000, fully funded by the SPLOST (Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax) approved by voters in 2009. The purchase was approved by the City Council at Monday's meeting (vote 3-0, Thomas Wight absent), with closing is later this month.
City Manager Bill Johnsa said, "This facility meets our current needs and future needs, and it gives us access to the greenway which is maintained by Public Works." The industrial zoning allows for outdoor storage, and the fenced property allows for more secure storage of vehicles impounded by the police.
"In the bigger picture it allows us to further develop our downtown," Johnsa said.
The existing public works building on Railroad Avenue will be disassembled. The property then will be used for additional parking in Old Town until another use is determined. There is a total of four acres available in the square formed by Main Street, Railroad Avenue, Lula Street, and First Avenue.
