|Board approves land purchase in Vidalia|
The Recreation District No. 3 Board voted unanimously Monday night to purchase land for recreation in an intergovernmental agreement with the City of Vidalia.
Recreation district chairman Mark Archer said the agreement is still being worked out, but is close to being finalized.
Recreation District No. 3 attorney and 1st Asst. Dist. Atty. Brad Burget said he plans on looking over the agreement today.
Once finalized with the proper signatures, 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 located behind Wal-Mart, going toward the levee and over to the barns on Cecil Parker's farm land.
"With the hotels we are getting in the area along with Comfort Suites, this gives us a great chance to host district and state tournaments," said Vidalia Mayor Hyram Copeland. "I am very excited about this. It's going to be a tremendous shot in the arm for us."
Archer and members of the board thanked Copeland and the Vidalia Board of Alderman for their assistance, while Copeland expressed his appreciation to the recreation district.
Archer said the board's main objective right now is to purchase the land at $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.
