MainCentre parking deck repairs discussed by city council

Northville City Manager Pat Sullivan provided a report regarding the condition of the MainCentre Parking deck to members of the city council at their regular meeting last month.
Sullivan's report outlined needed capital improvements required to upgrade the parking deck across from MainCentre shopping area downtown. Based on a detailed review from WGI, the township engineering firm, improvements to the 26-year-old structure would cost an estimated $452,200 during a three-year period, Sullivan said.

Lower-level improvements, which directly benefit the Singh company, are estimated to cost $227,950 - an amount that will be charged as a special assessment to the business, which owns the mixed-use building that spans Cady to Main Street along Center.
Payment could be made in whole or installments over a 15-year period with interest, Sullivan said. Northville would  pay the remaining $224,250 as a general obligation.
A letter will be sent to Singh noting the terms and conditions of the needed improvements, Sullivan said. Council members scheduled a public hearing for last Monday, March 2, to hear from those who would be affected by the proposed public improvement.
