The County has pursued acquisition of tax parcel 071-143-25 (+/- .665 acres) located on Coronet Way in the Lakewood area of west Charlotte for the future construction of the Stewart Creek Tributary 2 Greenway Project. The project was approved as part of the 2019-2023 Capital Improvement Plan and is currently in design.


The greenway trail will run roughly from Lakewood Avenue along the creek to State Street where it will connect to the existing Wesley Heights Greenway.  Acquisition of this parcel will allow the County to expand the greenway system by providing more contiguous miles for greenway users and connect users to Martin Luther King Community Park and Seversville Neighborhood Park. The acquisition is located mostly within the floodplain of Stewart Creek.


On May 15, 2018, the Board authorized staff to bid up to $8,800 for tax parcel 071-143-25. The property was auctioned for back taxes on August 14, 2018. The County submitted a total initial bid of $8,000 which was not upset. The total purchase price of $8,000 will cover back taxes, legal fees and court costs associated with the closing.


The Board must vote to approve the final purchase price of $8,000 for tax parcel 071-143-25 to complete the transaction. The purchase amount will be paid from available appropriated funds in the Land Account.
