Town to extend water line, obtain new easement

By Ryan Cornell

The Town of New Market is moving closer to extending one of its water lines for the Clark Street water loop project.

The project, which would include extending the water line from Clark Street to East Old Cross Road, was discussed by the council's public works committee at its meeting on Monday.

New Market Town Manager Mike Ritchie said the town determined it would be beneficial to change the location of the proposed water line while it was prepping for the water loop project. This required them to abandon an existing water line easement and obtain a new one from the same property owner, he said.

He said that staff also discovered that a change in sewer line easement would be necessary, and would require a survey showing the old easement to be vacated and the location for the new easement.

"There are no plans for any physical work being done to the sewer line, only paperwork concerning the easement itself," he said.

Ritchie said Town Council will hold a public hearing on the matter. He did not give a date.

The town also discussed its fa├žade enhancement grant program, which helps property owners within the Historic Overlay District make improvements to the exterior of their buildings and properties.

Projects provide a 1 to 1 match, and range from $500 to $5,000. Ritchie said they enhance the aesthetic quality and historic preservation of the community.

He said the approved projects must be to the exterior of the property and "provide an obvious benefit to the appearance of the structure."

He said the town has received four applications for the grant, which will be reviewed by the council's tourism, economic development and historic preservation committee on Monday.
