GAINESVILLE - The Gainesville Planning and Appeals Board, acting on a recommendation from planning division staff members, has voted to table a request to close a section of Broad Street.<br />
Gainesville Planning Manager Matt Tate confirmed the board's action Wednesday.<br />
The staff had recommended the move in order to give the applicant, Medical Arts Properties, a chance to submit more information about its request. (See earlier story. Link below.)<br />
The section of street is on the west side of town near The Longstreet Clinic.<br />
Tate also confirmed that planning and appeals board chairman Dean Dadisman has resigned because he is moving to South Carolina to be closer to family members.
