March 21, 2015: A New Initiative
We began an initiative to outright purchase 28 acres of the woods for a target price approaching $100,000/acre.

In a friendly and open meeting with Andrew Marquess, the owner/developer of the Parker land and soon to be owner of the adjoining 14 acre CNR parcel to the south, he conveyed that he would need a significantly higher figure that realistically we cannot meet.

Nonetheless, Mr. Marquess did indicate a strong willingness to provide his approval for our continued use of the woods until he is ready to begin work on the site. The City has not entertained any development proposals from Mr. Marquess as yet. We will pursue a suitable use arrangement with him in the interim.
