Alderman Pat Long hopes to meet with property owners from the area before the issue is scheduled to go before the full Board of Aldermen at its meeting on May 20.
The dates were requested by the Hanover Street Closing Association, which includes some but not all of the property owners where Hanover is scheduled to be closed.
Moe L’Heureux, who owns the former Odd Fellows temple building across Hanover from the Palace Theatre, told the Board of Aldermen on Tuesday night that he had not been informed of the longer schedule, which he said would inconvenience tenants in his building. One of them is a dance studio, where children’s classes resume after summer vacations are over and kids are back in school.
“It’s not my street,” L’Heureux said. “It’s all of ours and we all have to work together.”
“The appropriate way to handle would be to have a meeting on the impact on Hanover Street,” Ramsey said. “It just needs to be collaborative.”
