Jeff Schmitt Auto Group recently purchased a piece of property located at 2394 Phil Hubbel Drive that has already had a small building on the northern part of the property. At the time of the purchase, Jeff Schmitt Auto did not legally have access to the front of the small building because of an easement owned by the city.

The prior owners of the property designed a gravel driveway to the building, which was in violation of the city’s codes.

With the declaration of surplus, Jeff Schmitt Auto Group, which this property is a part of the new Nissan dealership, the auto company can now improve the current gravel driveway and maintain the property along Creekside Trial and have access to the building.
