|Vidalia land purchase planned by Recreational Board, city|
The Vidalia Recreation No. 3 Board of Directors will finalize plans Monday on the purchase of land for a new recreational complex.
The board hopes to work out the final details at a meeting Monday night, which will include an intergovermental agreement with the City of Vidalia.
Recreation District No. 3 chairman Mark Archer said today (Wednesday) that the agreement is still being worked out, but is close to being finalized.
The City of Vidalia will purchase 30 acres for $500,000 to lease to the recreation board, while the recreation board will purchase an additional 20 acres located behind Wal-Mart, going toward the levee and over to the barns on Cecil Parker's farm land.
Archer said the board's main objective right now is to purchase the land, which will cost $17,000 an acre.
Presently, Recreation District No. 3 owns a few acres near Vidalia Junior High and 12 acres near the Recreation Center which encompasses seven ball parks.
Archer said once the papers are signed, the board will then proceed into looking at road work, drainage work and work cost factors.
"Believe it or not, the easiest and cheapest part will be the facilities themselves," he said. "Our first step is going to be getting a feasibility study on the project. Down the road we will hold some public meetings to discuss and receive input on the actual facilities."
