The committee previously received communications from the current property owner’s representatives asking if the town would be interested in purchasing the property for $224,900. According to Rockoff Realty broker and owner Kevin Rockoff, representing the seller, the land is a 1.7-acre residential property abutting the western boundary of the Case Mountain Recreation Area. Rockoff wrote that the property is naturally forested and could offer easy access to new biking or hiking trails at the mountain.
There is also a 305-foot-deep well drilled in the southeast corner of the property that produces 20 gallons per minute and the water was tested upon completion with “excellent results,” Rockoff said. HOW TO TUNE IN: Anyone who wants to participate and/or speak must submit a request to email@example.com ahead of the meeting.
WHEN: 6 p.m. Thursday, April 22. Senior Planner Kyle Shiel emphasized that the Land Acquisition and Historic Property Investment Committee works in an advisory capacity and could simply make a recommendation to the Board of Directors to purchase the property — the group can’t make the decision. If it were to recommend the land purchase, the item would then go in front of the Board of Directors for a vote.
