North Augusta City Council will meet online for a virtual meeting on Monday, June 1.

North Augusta City Council will be voting Monday on two resolutions related to the downtown Greeneway connector.

The downtown Greeneway connector will do just that: bring the multi-mile trail that runs through the city to downtown. Documents detailing the exact terms Council is voting on are not yet posted online, but the city has previously discussed doing a streetscape project via Bluff Avenue to bring the trail to downtown.

The two ordinances, if passed, would authorize the city to enter into a master agreement for engineering services and execute work authorization for the project, both with Cranston Engineering Group, P.C.

City Council will also vote on the second and final readings of three ordinances.

The first ordinance, if passed, would abandon a city-owned right-of-way in the Hammond’s Ferry neighborhood.

The second ordinance would allow for City Council and other boards and commissions to meet remotely, as they have been doing by way of emergency ordinance since the beginning of the local COVID-19 panic.

The third ordinance would annex around 1.95 acres of land on West Five Notch, owned by The Hammonds at Five Notch, which is planning a subdivision in that area.

City Council will also vote on a resolution that would grant Superior Construction Company the right to use around one acre of city-owned property as a letdown and staging yard, near the 5th Street Bridge.

Superior Construction Company is the contractor for a project to renovate the bridge and turn it into a pedestrian walkway.

City Council will also vote on a resolution related to restoration of the Hammond’s Ferry soccer field and a resolution regarding a small business grant program.

Ahead of the meeting, City Council will have a discussion of the fire station No. 1 project, which is planned to be built off Martintown Road.

The two meetings will be held online via GoToMeeting and will be livestreamed on the city's Facebook and YouTube pages, beginning at 6 p.m.
