Fair market valley of Cherry Hill Community Center to be determined by state
Placeholder Image
The county will be allowed to pay fair market value for the Cherry Hill Community Center property and the state will remove the “public use’ deed restriction. During Monday night’s meeting, County Mayor Tim Stribling informed the county commission that the excess land committee of the Tennessee Department of Transportation’s Right of Way Division met in January and granted approval clearing the way for the county’s outright ownership of the Cherry Hill Community Center property. Although the state deeded the 0.24 acre site to DeKalb County in August, 1981, a restriction currently requires the county to use the property for public purposes.
