Pictured is land on Mt. Leo Heights which Habitat for Humanity wants to give back to the city. Habitat officials say the land is too steep for their purposes.
Land is returning to the city of McMinnville, while officials are also working to deed some of it away.During a city Building and Grounds Committee meeting, city attorney Tim Pirtle informed members that the city failed to complete a land transfer to Industrial Development Board (IDB) in 2000 and land given to Warren County Habitat for Humanity by the city is being returned.“In 2000, the city passed an ordinance conveying the former Oster site to the IDB,” said Pirtle. “The deed of conveyance that was executed and recorded only conveyed half of the property. The other half, 10 acres, remained in the name of the city.
