Rome to Buy Abandoned Rail Line; Approves Air Rights Easement

The Rome City Commission is poised to buy 4.22 acres of an abandoned Norfolk-Southern rail line, clearing the way for construction of the long-deferred Redmond Trail project to Summerville Park.

Also, the City approved an air rights easement for Ira Levy’s downtown condominium project The Lofts at Third & Broad, which is under construction. The perpetual agreement allows Levy to add balconies extending three feet over the city’s sidewalks on Broad Street and Third Avenue, starting 16 feet in the air.

“They've provided all the insurance coverage we’ve asked for,” City Attorney Andy Davis of Brinson Askew Berry said.
