The City Council unanimously voted to accept a potential gift of 2.02 acres of land from the Frostproof Chamber of Commerce. The land, on the northeast corner of First Street and Oak Street, would be used for a public parking lot. “The idea would be to create an attractive parking area,” Mayor Rodney Cannon said during Monday night’s meeting. “We really do need that to be a parking lot and it would enhance our downtown.” City Manager Tenny Croley estimated it would cost from $300,000 to $400,000 spread out over several years to clear the land, followed by the development, design, permitting and construction of the proposed parking lot. “Parking has always been an issue downtown and this is an asset that’s going to be gifted to us,” Croley said. She said the city would explore grant opportunities to help cover the cost.
