GREENVILLE — The Greenville City Council voted unanimously Tuesday evening to consider the introduction of an ordinance to vacate a portion of the right-of-way of Coffren Avenue.

In voting, the council scheduled a public hearing for May 2 to consider to vacate the portion of the right-of-way of the street, located south of Greenville West Drive and west of N. Lincoln Street.

“In keeping with the city charter requirements, we must, by resolution, create an ordinance to vacate a street,” City Manager George Bosanic said.

According to Bosanic, if the ordinance is eventually adopted, it will increase the square footage of adjacent vacant residential property, creating enough space for two lots.

Pending approval, the city plans to exchange the property with Habitat of Humanity with a goal to move two houses from Marvel Drive to the vacant Coffren Avenue properties.
