Madison County Future Inc. is now in charge of marketing county-owned property for sale and for lease.
The Madison County commissioners signed an agreement June 23 with Madison County Future, the community improvement corporation (CIC) affiliated with the Madison County Chamber of Commerce.
“The CIC can market our property in a more conventional way than we can (as a governmental body),” said Commissioner Paul Gross.
The CIC will receive 2 percent of each deal it seals. David Kell, the county economic development director, is handling the work.
The county’s top priority is selling property on Lafayette Street and Keny Boulevard where it owns seven acres that can be split into various sized lots. Also on Lafayette Street, the county has 8,000 square feet of building space available for lease between the Madison County-London City Health Department and Tractor Supply Co.
Additional lease space just opened up where the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) agency was located at 294 Lafayette St., though the commissioners say they already have an interested renter. The BMV is now located in the county-owned building at 13 N. Oak St., London.
