Eleanor Park: To sell or not to sell

Posted on Wednesday, August 22, 2018 at 9:55 am

Eleanor Park rears its head again as the town of Colonial Beach has received an offer of $900,000 to purchase the property.

At a previous meeting, Mayor Eddie Blunt had said he would not vote to sell the property as they had only heard from constituents who were against the sale of the land. With Blunt leaning that way it left the council with a 4-3 lean against selling the property.

Blunt seemed to be more willing to discuss selling it again albeit with asking for the potential buyer to show what they wanted to do with the land.

According to the council the potential purchaser was looking to only build 6 houses on the land vs the 11-13 that have been discussed previously on the property.
