The current Tubman Museum and two parcels of adjacent property was the topic of conversation at the public properties committee of Macon City Council today.
The committee passed a resolution authorizing the mayor to enter into a development agreement with the Macon-Bibb County Development Authority.
Once the Tubman Museum moves into its new facility, the development authority will take that property and the two adjacent and be able to develop or sell the property as one unit, making it more attractive for potential buyers.
"They think they can get a better response, they can get a better tenant, a better price and for that price they would keep 10% for the administration and marketing and send 90% back to us." - Rick Hutto, Public Properties Chairman
All together the lots would make up a quarter-block of real estate at the corner of MLK and Walnut.
