Supervisors vote to purchase future park site for $2.8M


The Henrico County Board of Supervisors is moving forward with plans for a recreational park after a vote Sept. 22, to authorize the purchase of 99 acres in Sandston for $2.8 million from private landowners.

The sellers approached the county as far back as 2007 to propose a sale, but Varina District Supervisor Tyrone Nelson said that it took some time to reach an agreement on a price for the land.

"The landowners have been pretty aggressive in wanting the county to have the property, and in wanting the space to be used for a park, so it wouldn't be sold to developers," said Nelson. "The county was interested but we had differences on the price and what they wanted and what we could offer – we can only offer what the land is appraised for, and that isn't really negotiable."
