SALISBURY, Md. - Apartments, a boutique hotel and more retail space could be coming to downtown Salisbury in the next few years.

Salisbury city officials announced Thursday that they are negotiating exclusively with Harkins Downtown, LLC to further discuss their proposal.

The two parking lots that could be re-developed are parking lots 1 and 11, located near the Wicomico Public Library and the Downtown Plaza.

"To anyone concerned about parking or the library or access or anything like that, I say a community who believes that it's greatest asset is a surface parking lot on the most valuable potential development land in the community, that's a community with low self esteem," council president Jake Day says. "We deserve better. Salisbury deserves better."

Day says the project is a ten-year project, from negotiations to the time projects are fully standing.

The negotiation period is expected to last the next six months.
