Contractors working for Kohl’s Department Store have begun interior demolition work at the site of the former Mervyn’s Department Store near Main Street between First Street and Pearl Street. In order to facilitate the work, the City has issued an encroachment permit to allow the contractor to use the City’s 52-space surface parking lot G adjacent to the building on its north side. This parking lot is now fenced off during internal demolition and remodeling work for the new Kohl’s store. This phase of work is scheduled to be completed by mid May 2009. Public parking remains available in the Pearl Street Garage and other surface lots in the area.
