Community Forum Scheduled on Proposed Waterworks Road Land Exchange
Office of the City Manager - June 23, 2009
Contact: Derwick Paige, 747-7473
Council Member Joycelyn Johnson will hold a community forum Tuesday evening, June 30, to discuss a proposed land swap between the city and Goler A.M.E. Zion Church. The forum will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Winston Lake Family YMCA, 901 Waterworks Road.
Under the proposal before the City Council, Goler would give the city 14.6 acres it owns on the south side of Waterworks Road, across from the Winston-Salem Family YMCA, in exchange for 12 acres the city owns on the north side of Waterworks Road, east of the YMCA.
Goler is seeking the land swap to build a $10 million nursing home in partnership with the Lutheran Council on Aging. Lutheran Services would seek the required zoning permits before construction could begin.
The land acquired by the city in the swap would be added to the city’s park land inventory and developed for recreational purposes and parking.
Members of the city staff will be present to answer questions. A map showing the tracts is shown below.
