The Iowa City City Council will hold a public hearing regarding the conveyance and vacating of Melrose Place.

According to city documents, University of Iowa officials requested that city officials vacate and convey a portion of Melrose Place in order for the school to construct a 252-space parking lot.

City staff recommended the city convey the right-of-way to the UI. The conveyance is expected to have no cost.

The city councilors voted at their last meeting, May 1, to approve the first consideration of an ordinance requiring the city to vacate that portion of Melrose Place. Councilors will also vote on the second consideration of the ordinance.

Councilors will hold a public hearing and consider a resolution at the next meeting, May 15.
