Millennium May Get More Park Land
GRAND RAPIDS — County commissioners may buy another 111 acres for Millennium Park on Thursday.
The asking price, which has been appraised, is $1.1 million plus an estimated $18,000 for closing costs. The property is in the center of the park and the seller is Sandco and Maynard Avenue Transfer LLC. The owners have a concrete crushing operation on the land and store crushed concrete there.
The county funds would come from the park’s capital improvement account. A purchase agreement has to be signed by the end of this month and the deal has to close by the end of March.
The county’s Finance Committee approved the property purchase last week.
