Overview: The Town received an offer of $21,000 to purchase a small portion of Town property located at 605 Oak Avenue in Carrboro, North Carolina to make improvements to their home. This property is a part of the Oakwood Public Housing community.


Recommendation(s):
That the Council review the offer and authorize sale of Property as described through the procedure of North Carolina General Statute ? 160A-269.

Background and Discussion:
* The homeowner of 612 N. Greensboro Street, Carrboro wishes to purchase 1/10th of an acre of Town-owned land adjacent to her property.
* The property is located at the entrance to the Oakwood neighborhood.
* The 1/10th of an acre is well beyond any area that would impact the residents, buildings, or visitors to Oakwood.
* N.C.G.S 160A-269 requires the offeror to deposit five percent (5%) of their bid with the Town Clerk, and that the Town publish notice of the offer.
* Within 10 days of the notice any person may offer an "upset bid".
* The Town may reject the offer.


Fiscal Impact/Resources: The offer is for $21,000 for 1/10th of an acre. McPhaul Appraisal used the most recent local available comparable, which is the NCDOT land purchase for a roundabout at Estes and North Greensboro in Carrboro. David S. Smith, an appraiser we have used for other public housing property, confirmed that this is a reasonable offer for the property at $4.96/sf.
