Placeholder Image
McMinnville has formally abandoned a small portion of Needmore Road. City officials unanimously voted on second read Tuesday night to abandon two sections of Needmore Road -- one in front of KFC and the other in front of Tim’s Motors.Both property owners requested of the city’s Planning Commission in February that officials abandon the sections, which would allow them to be utilized by the businesses. The commission recommended approval of the measure to the full board.City administrator Bill Brock says Tim’s Motors wants the portion of the street in front of its business for safety reasons.“The big fear on the Tim’s Motors property is that he owns the land on both sides of the road.
