Aldermen To Encourage Fleet Feet To Stay
CARRBORO – When the Carrboro Aldermen meet Tuesday, the board will consider an economic development agreement to encourage Fleet Feet Sports to keep its corporate headquarters and flagship store in Carrboro.
As Fleet Feet looks to consolidate its office and retail space, Carrboro leaders are hoping to keep the shoe retailer in town by negotiating a four-way deal with Fleet Feet, the Jesse Kalisher Gallery and management at the 300 East Main Street development.
If approved, Fleet Feet would move into a new building at 300 East Main which would include both office and retail space. The Kalisher Gallery would move into Fleet Feet’s space at 406 East Main Street and the Town of Carrboro would subsidize parking for the Gallery in the 300 East Main parking deck. The town would also purchase Fleet Feet’s current office space above Acme Restaurant at a cost of $568,000.
The board will also discuss possible change to the town’s towing ordinance and consider limiting the places where more than four unrelated individuals can live.
The Carrboro Aldermen meet at 7:30 p.m. at Carrboro Town Hall.
