Lextran will host a community meeting Tuesday to discuss the disposal of property on Loudon Avenue.

The transit agency plans to begin selling 101, 105 and 109 West Loudon Avenue this fall.

The meeting will be 4 to 6 p.m. at Lextran’s new headquarters at 200 West Loudon, which opened in April.

“We want to make every effort to ensure the property will be used in a way that will enhance the community and the North Limestone corridor,” Lextran’s general manager, Carrie Butler, said in a news release.

The Federal Transit Administration requires that Lextran follow a specific process in disposing of the property. Information about that, and about the sites’ historical, community and environmental impact, will be provided during the meeting. Lextran also wants to get feedback from potential developers, according to the news release.

The building at 101 West Loudon was built by Consolidated Coach Corp. in 1928; the bus wash building, with a mural, at 105 West Loudon was built by Lextran in 2005; and the building at 109 West Loudon was built in 1974.

Interested parties should RSVP to Keith Srutowski at ksrutowski@lextran.com.
