Analysis

 

This ordinance, as substituted, declares as surplus and approves the sale of an 11.3 acre parcel of property owned by Metro located at 0 Brick Church Pike to Habitat for Humanity for the construction of 26 new affordable homes. The Metropolitan Nashville Board of Public Education has determined that this parcel is no longer needed for any school purpose. The property is adjacent to a larger undisturbed parcel.

 

The appraised value of this property is $1,209,500.

The park will include useable active park space with walking trails and other amenities. Habitat for Humanity estimates that the value of the park and improvements it will be making is $638,900, which combined with the purchase price, exceeds the appraised value of the property.

 

The ordinance will require a deed restriction requiring that six acres of park property be deeded back to Metro and that the remaining property be used for the construction of 26 new affordable homes.
