MUSCLE SHOALS — City Council members have approved a pair of alley vacations sought by property owners and one annexation request.
The council approved a request to vacate a 20-foot alley in the Highland Park No. 5 subdivision, which exists only on paper, City Clerk Ricky Williams said. The request was made by Simpson Auto Properties.
A second alley vacation was approved on behalf of Isbell Land Company in Union Terrace No. 2, another neighborhood that exists only on paper. The council vacated alleys in that neighborhood years ago, the clerk said.
The council also approved an annexation request by Thomson Rental Properties. The 12.26 acres of land adjoins the city in the Elledge Lane area. The property lies near a Norfolk Southern Railway line.
The company is expected to seek a rezoning request for a multi-family development on the property.
