On January 23rd, the Town of Southbury signed an Option to Purchase Agreement for the Edgewood Bath and Tennis Club. The Southbury Board of Selectmen voted unanimously to approve the signing after an executive session review.
Per this agreement, the Town paid a $3,000 non-refundable Option Fee to Edgewood for the right to purchase their 10.51 acres of land, all facilities, and equipment for $2,000,000. The purchase option expires on July 31st, 2020. The $3,000 Option Fee will be applied towards the Purchase Price if the Town does purchase Edgewood.
On February 3rd, the First Selectman, Jeff Manville, appointed an ad hoc task force to study the Edgewood property and make a recommendation as to whether the Town should purchase the property. This Task Force has done a lot of work and is now ready to present its findings to the Town. The documents and recordings from the Informational Meetings can be found at www.southbury-ct.org/edgewood.
The Town will hold two virtual Informational Meetings to allow the Task Force to present information and to gather feedback.
The first is a presentation of the Task Force’s findings on Wednesday, April 1st, at 7 PM. This meeting will be live-streamed on the Town website.
There will be a second meeting on Monday, April 6th, where the Task Force will answer questions that are submitted by the public through the Town website at www.southbury-ct.org/edgewood. This meeting will also start at 7 PM and be live-streamed on the Town’s website.
In an attempt to answer all submitted questions, there will be a third meeting on Monday, April 13, at 7 PM. This meeting will also be live-streamed on the Town’s website.
