AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

Meeting Date:           November 28, 2011

 

From:                          James Feagle, Deputy Director of Public Works

 

Subject:                      Resolution approving  a contract for sale and purchase of the Faunda property for the future Magnolia Trail extension.

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of contract sale and purchase with Richard Faunda for the sale of real property to be acquired for the future Magnolia Trail extension.

 

Analysis:

At the April 11, 2011 Commission meeting, the Commission directed staff to obtain an appraisal of the Faunda property for the purpose of estimating the market value for purchase by the City of Leesburg for future extension of the Magnolia Trail.  Should the Commission pursue the purchase, the same property will be needed for extension of Magnolia Street out to U.S. 27.

 

On July 13, 2011 staff had the appraisal done by King Appraisal Services to estimate the market value of the property as of the appraisal date.  The report describes the property, the general neighborhood environment, and methods of approach to the valuation problems by the appraiser.  All factors have been thoroughly analyzed and investigated with the appraisal coming in at $120,000.00.

 

Options:

1.  Approve contract for sale and purchase of Faunda property; or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

At the April 11, 2011 Commission meeting, the Commission discussed purchasing the property with available CRA funding and $100,000 was included in the current budget.  A budget adjustment will be necessary to increase this amount to $120,000.  Funds are available in fund balance.
