Tallahassee Reports has learned that the Killearn Homes Association (KHA) is taking steps towards selling vacant land located at the Thomasville Road – Killarney Way entrance to Killearn Estates.
According to KHA meeting minutes, a vote was taken on March 12, 2020 by the KHA Board to sell the 3575 Tallahassee Road lot and an optional portion of the 3565 Thomasville Road lot. Both lots are located on the northside of the entrance to Killearn Estates via Killarney Way.
The vote was 7-1 to move forward with the sale.
At the April 7th meeting, the KHA minutes indicate that a property appraisal of the land considered for sale is underway.
In a recent Facebook post, the KHA stated that “when the appraisal is presented to the Board, it will discuss how to proceed. The Board will examine the buffer, define restrictions placed on the property and finally, whether to sell the lot or not.”
The KHA also stated that the “front entrance is not being sold. The lot, 3575 Thomasville Road is adjacent to the north section of the front entrance, at the corner of Tallahassee Drive.”
The KHA minutes indicate that part of the proceeds from a sale would go to fund approximately $100,000 in repairs that are required at the Killearn Swim Club located on Killarney Way.
The KHA stated that the Board voted to lend the pool funds from the Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) reserve and that the Swim Club will pay back the loan out of its revenues.
According to property records, the Killearn Estates entrance currently consists of approximately 5.4 acres, with 2.4 acres on the southside of Killarney Way and 2.9 acres on northside.
The land under consideration for sale is 1.43 acres of the 2.9 acres located on the northside as outlined in the Leon County Property Appraiser map below, plus the yet to be determined acreage amount of the “optional portion” of the the 3575 Thomasville Road lot.
According to the KHA minutes, KHA officials will “provide details of the sale of the entrance lots and report back to the Board as soon as possible.”
The next KHA meeting is scheduled, via Zoom, on May 5th.
