BACKGROUND
Background
The City of Greensboro has approved and prioritized plans for the construction of a parking deck on the Bellemeade Building property that they acquired from Guilford County. The parking deck construction is scheduled to begin in September of 2019 and last for up to 18 months. The City will be reinforcing the retaining wall at the rear of the Edgeworth Building due to the close proximity of the parking deck. The wall is to be reinforced with steel plates that will be supported by ground anchors installed into the area behind the wall. The City has requested a 50' temporary construction easement (6,187 square feet), consisting of 50' in width by 124.14' in length on the eastern side and 123.32' in length on the western side of the easement, on the Edgeworth Building site (232 North Edgeworth Street, Parcel #: 0001806).

It is recommended that the County grant a quitclaim deed to grant the lower foundation wall to the City so that the entire wall belongs to the City.

The City of Greensboro has agreed to provide parking at the Church Street parking deck for the number of parking spaces displaced until parking is permitted again at the Edgeworth Building. The time that the parking spaces at Edgeworth will be out of service is expected to be much less than the 18-m...
