City Council Discusses Visitor Center Lease Agreement

Published on January 05, 2017 by Larry Crippen

At this week’s regular City Council session, councilmembers discussed whether to sign a lease agreement  for 1114 Sam Houston Avenue for $2,000 per month to provide space for a Downtown Visitors Center and the City’s Main Street Division.

Councilmember Ron Allen voiced his objections to the agreement. He mentioned the $250 lease arrangement on University and  then said, “To help pay for this, the City Manager and Aron Kulhavy wants the council” to move the program for Main Street, and the Tall Pines Quilt Guild that had been housed in the log cabin, to the new building . . . .

 

There’s also the possibility of installing an elevator in the building later.

In a related comment on the matter, Mayor Brauninger brought up a restroom issue as it relates to downtown, that regardless of what the decision on this particular building was, downtown Huntsville needed a public restroom location for visitors.

Councilmember Davidhizar commented on the Visitor Center matter . . . .

 

Councilmember Olson looked at a Visitor Center move in regard to its actual function in the City’s scheme of things . . . .

 

Councilmembers approved 5 to 3 to sign the lease agreement.
