Caldwell Urban Renewal Goes For Land Speculation Deal

The below quote is taken from the September 6, 2005 Caldwell East Urban Renewal Agency minutes. It would appear the Caldwell Urban Renewal Agency went into the land speculation business with our tax money. The intent appears to be in a position to sell the property to the FAA at some future date when the Caldwell Airport expands.


"Chairman Waite informed the board that the Huston property at the airport, which is located in the ‘squash zone’ and consists of 13-15 acres @ $50,240/acre, is on the list to be purchased by the FAA in several years. URA has the opportunity to purchase the land now for re-sale to the FAA in the next several years. Potentially the FAA will reimburse owner at market value, however it is not known whether URA will qualify for the full market value reimbursement. Motion to authorize Chairman Waite to put together a package for URA approval: Beebe/Fouts M/S/P"

A public discourse on the issues of the day makes the world a better place.

We welcome comments but they will be moderated and edited if too long or do not have anything to do with the post.
Agree or disagree just do it without profanity or it won't get posted. Try to keep your comments to no more than 300 words. Too long and I will try to edit it down or simply delete the comment. The whole idea is to get people to read your comment. Don't use 10 words when one will do the job.

It's OK to have a difference of opinion but keep it civil. I have used the "delete" feature on myself at times.

The ANONYMOUS feature for comments seems to be the most user friendly. People have commented they have difficulty with the other methods of posting comments.
