Board to hold hearing on land sale

A Pulaski County man who purchased two separate tracks of land along the New River last May is hoping to bring the two together by buying a parcel from Pulaski County.
The county will hold a public hearing Monday, Oct. 26 to receive public comments on the proposed sale of half an acre of land to Bob Strenz. The hearing is one of seven on the agenda for the supervisors’ meeting, which begins at 7 p.m. in the boardroom of the County Administration Building on Third Street in Pulaski.
The property in question is between Hazel Hollow Road and the New River in Fairlawn.
If the board approves the sale, Strenz will be able to merge two separate parcels he purchased in May. That property was part of the former St. Alban’s hospital tract that was gifted to Radford University in 2001.
Strenz, who owns a considerable amount of real estate along Rt. 99 in Pulaski, was the winning bidder for the New River property. It consists of almost 13 acres, but was split by the parcel owned by Pulaski County.
Recently, Strenz said he has not yet reached a decision on what to do with the waterfront property.
Other items on the agenda for Monday night include:
• Public hearings on rezoning requests by Jasper K. and Sandra Q. Boone of Oak Place and James W. and Loretta S. Webb of 6500 McGavock Creek Road; special use permits by CMH Homes Inc. of 4810 Cleburne Blvd. and John Thos and James W. Kelley Jr. of 2972 Kirby Road; revisions and updates to Volume 1 of the Pulaski County Comprehensive Plan; and a proposed bond issue.
• Public comment periods.
• Highway matters, including a request for a no passing zone on Newbern Road and a request for no loitering signs at intersections.
• Update on the eternal flame at the Pulaski County Courthouse.
• Presentation of a memorial resolution to the family of deceased former supervisor Charlie Linkous and request for a resolution recognizing the late Joey Calfee.
• Featured employees for October.
• Presentation of a proclamation for the Pulaski County Emergency Needs Task Force.
