The property will need to be rezoned to accommodate the use as a single family residential dwelling in part.”
Townsend added that it will be available for lease for events such as weddings just like any other banquet hall and similar to the Fishburn Mansion.
May 17: Scott and Ascension Horchler want to buy the former Buena Vista Community Center for $75,000. Scott Horchler is employed by SunTrust in Richmond, Virginia. According to SunTrust Horchler has transitioned from Community Development to Government Regulations.
Three of the 12.7 acres will go with it for that price if approved by city council. Use of the building after historic renovation is unclear.
City manager Chris Morrill advises council in a letter attached to Monday’s council agenda that the property is valued at $250,000 and includes the mansion and three acres. The letter states that a 2003 assessment to renovate the mansion was $285,000.
The entire 12.7-acre parcel is assessed at $764,000 according the city’s GIS website. A public hearing on the sale will take place June 7 at 2:00 pm.
