State property bill receives anticipated ink

MILLEDGEVILLE — Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal signed off on an integral piece of legislation affecting the Central State Hospital Local Redevelopment Authority (CSHLRA) Tuesday. House Bill 495 provides tools for the board to become truly effective in its mission to reinvigorate nearly 2,000-acres of state property at Central State Hospital’s campus. CSHLRA boards members, City of Milledgeville officials, Baldwin County Commission officials and state legislators Rusty Kidd and Burt Jones celebrated the historic moment at the Capitol. HB 495 opens direct linkage to work with the State Properties Commission (SPC) on a case-by-case basis. The bill was submitted as constructed last session. It allows the redevelopment authority to negotiate with the SPC for any properties valued under $500,000.This bill offers property access outside of the Georgia General Assembly’s annual sessions. Cutting 400 days off a transaction time makes the campus acres ‘market ready,’ while facilitating job creation and protecting an asset of all state taxpayers.
