Stuart City Hall parking lots to close for resurfacing this weekend

The parking lots in front of Stuart City Hall at 121 SW Flagler Avenue and adjacent to the City Hall Annex at 300 St. Lucie Boulevard will be closed for resurfacing the weekend of Saturday and Sunday, December 1 and 2, 2012.The resurfacing is the final step to a parking lot reconfiguration project designed to connect the three parking lots and make parking more accessible for downtown visitors. The weekly Stuart Green Market will be closed Sunday, December 2 during the project.

“We realize this is an inconvenience for our downtown businesses and visitors,” said Teresa Lamar-Sarno, Community Redevelopment Agency Administrator. “The resurfacing is part of routine maintenance of the parking lots. By doing it now as part of the reconfiguration project, we will not have to resurface again for many years.”
