Basil’s Pizza looking to add outdoor seating
A sliver of property owned by the City is being looked at for development. Community Development Director Chris Heineman says the City has over $70,000 into 219 Water Street, the old Barbershop next to Basil’s Pizza. That includes remediation and demolition. He said it’s very much a potential corridor to invest in a beautification project and offer better access to the river walk. It could also provide expansion for adjacent businesses including outdoor seating. Additionally, the Pitsavas family may be interested in expanding the building, however, that would trigger ADA compliance issues including the bathroom.
The Planning Commission held a public hearing and Heineman says the next step is a development agreement with the Pitsavas family. Mayor Graham said the, “drawings we saw are very nice, so we’ll see if it happens”. He said, “we don’t have any money on it yet”. The Pitsavas’s plan on getting a permit next week. The Mayor wrapped up saying, “so if it happens it’d be nice, I think they deserve to have an outdoor seating area like so many of our other places do”.
