Granville Town Council asked to consider taking ownership of Sesame Drive

MORGANTOWN — Granville Town Council was asked to consider taking ownership of Sesame Drive, which is an 800-foot road between Panda Express and Wendy’s at the University Town Centre.
A parcel of land next to Wendy’s is also connected with the road and council questioned if development would be taking place on that parcel.
“Was there any anticipation that there would be development beyond that and that we would be expected to extend the road?” Granville Town Mayor Patricia Lewis asked.
“I don’t think that’s possible given the sloped terrain,” said Attorney for Steptoe & Johnson, Brian GaIlagher.
Council decided to put it on the agenda for the June 26 meeting and revisit it once more information on the road was obtained.
