The City and the College Park Volunteer Fire Department (CPVFD) have negotiated and agreed on a contract of sale for the purchase of 5100 Roanoke Place for $63,800.

The City will acquire the 13,575 square foot property from the CPVFD using State of Maryland Program Open Space (POS) funding . The deposit for the contract of sale is $2500, which will be held in escrow until settlement.

The City plans to work with the neighborhood to determine future improvements as public open spaces.

At tomorrow’s meeting, the Council will hold a public hearing on a proposal to acquire the property using POS funds. The Council will vote on the item later in the meeting.
