The lease payment is due. To remind everyone, this property was acquired on a lease-to-own basis. Every year, the four counties involved (Lee, Estill, Wolfe, and Powell) have to pay the lease payment to the landowners. This has to be approved through the fiscal court of each county, so it is a slow process. Paying this annual payment is of the utmost importance to the board and the project.
Tony Tipton, our new park manager, provided the board with updates on his opening plan. He has made substantial progress in the areas of boundary resolution, economic impact, and signage. More work is needed on trail rating, parking, and other capital projects. The thing that everyone likes to hear is that things are moving forward at a faster rate than ever before. More to come...
The board approved $2500 for added work to clear some of the property titles in Estill, Wolfe and Powell counties. The title situation on rural lands that have been sold between oil and mineral companies is always messy. Having a clean title ensures we aren't trespassing on anyone's property as well as not improving property we don't have claim to.
As always, we encourage any of our supporters to bring any concerns or questions to our park meetings. We post all of our meetings on our Hollerwood Park Facebook page. We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting!
