Q: Now that the town has made a decision to build a new town hall (albeit at a later date) on a vacant piece of land, what is the plan for the Gordon Hardware building and the house on the corner of Summerfield Road and Oak Ridge Road? With property values being what they are, now seems like an ideal time to sell.


A: We reached out to Summerfield Town Manager Scott Whitaker for an update on the two properties this reader asked about. Whitaker pointed out that plans for a new town hall weren't intended to be significantly delayed, although he realizes it came across that way in a recent council meeting. Design and pricing presentations are planned for the Nov. 9 council meeting.


As for the Gordon Hardware building and the Martin House, Whitaker told us the town doesn't have a plan for them yet.


"Council discussed the topic at its retreat last February without resolution," he said. "I don't expect more direction until the newly-seated Council is in place with time for strategic discussions. I suspect that will be at the retreat again."


Regarding putting the two properties up for sale, Whitaker acknowledged the town has had some interest/purchase inquiries, "but each property has its own challenges and both would require a lot of work."
