The Urban Development Agency Tuesday night gave permission to St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church to hold its annual lawn fete July 8 and 9 on the vacant parcel of land east of the school on Fourth Street.
The small parcel is the last vacant parcel in the urban renewal area. It is too small to be developed, Development Director Alex Pelinsky said. A report will be given to the agency at its next meeting. St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church has previously expressed interest in the land.
In other business, Pelinsky reported that letters have been sent to James Andrews, owner of the former Graf Furniture Building at 319 Central Ave. The building is still vacant and has not been developed according to plans submitted to the agency years ago. Pelinsky said that legal remedies are available to the agency. Member Mark Speziale Jr. said the building has been vacant for too long. This is not good for downtown, he added.
