DEPARTMENT:  Public Works    

 

CONTACT INFORMATION:     Ben Schmadeke, 919-918-7424, bschmadeke@townofcarrboro.org <mailto:bschmadeke@townofcarrboro.org>; Joe Guckavan, 919-918-7427, jguckavan@townofcarrboro.org <mailto:jguckavan@townofcarrboro.org>   

 

INFORMATION:    The Carrboro Civic Club wishes to donate to the Town the property located at 108 Bim Street including the historic structure that has been used by the Civic Club as a meeting and event space for over fifty years.  As a condition of the donation, the Civic Club requests that the building continue to serve the community and the Civic Club’s mission which is “To Promote Health, Beautification and the Betterment of the Community.”  The attached Resolution outlines the Town’s commitment to the Civic Club’s terms and authorizes the Town Attorney to proceed with the deed transfer.  Public Works Staff have inspected the property and received an inspection report on the building and have not identified any significant liabilities associated with occupying the structure.  A title search to ensure there are no outstanding liens on the property is pending.    

 

FISCAL & STAFF IMPACT:    The immediate fiscal impact associated with this resolution is the closing cost associated with the transfer of property.  Renovations to make the building accessible and bring it up to the current building code will be necessary in the future.  These renovations are estimated to cost up to $100,000.  The Staff impact will be the additional building maintenance and upkeep undertaken by Public Works.        

 

RECOMMENDATION:  It is recommended that the Council approve the attached resolution.
