Chatfield plans for Family Dollar store


Fri, Feb 14th, 2014
Posted in Chatfield Government

At the February 10 Chatfield City Council meeting a resolution was adopted allowing the Chatfield EDA to enter into a purchase agreement to sell land for the future location of a Family Dollar store.

The 0.85 acres is in the Twiford Redevelopment Area located between Highway 52 and Twiford Street, bordering the southwest corner of Division Street. EDA Coordinator Chris Giesen explained that the property will be purchased by SMR Acquisitions Company, LLC for $210,000 contingent on a development agreement between the city and the buyer.

The EDA held a public hearing on the sale on January 30. No comments were made by the public. The EDA had recommended the city council approve the purchase agreement to promote economic development in the city. The buyer will be responsible for demolition and site preparation.

In a related matter the council authorized Chatfield’s city attorney, Fred Suhler, to draft an ordinance to vacate right-of-way needed for the proposed redevelopment of the Twiford area and to consolidate those properties. Utilities that cross the property will need to be relocated to Twiford Street. The alley way that runs across the property and some of the Division Street right-of-way have to be vacated.

Giesen also asked that the city council authorize the use of $38,500 of the Rochester Sales Tax funds for St. Albans Place improvements as recommended by the EDA. This money is intended for economic development projects. EZ Fabricating in their new home will add to the city’s tax base and provide additional employment opportunities. The funds will be used to pay for water and sanitary sewer access fees on behalf of EZ Fabricating. Giesen suggested the project will produce about 20 jobs. The council authorized the use of a portion of the sales tax funds.
