Ahoskie accepts property donation

Published 5:14 pm Friday, December 1, 2023

AHOSKIE – The Town of Ahoskie has accepted the donation of two parcels of land with hopes of developing the property.

At the recent regular meeting of the Ahoskie Town Council, they were informed that Time Land Development, LLC wished to donate the land, which consists of two contiguous parcels, each approximately 1.19 acres.

The property is located on the south side of First Street, between the Social Security Administration’s office and Carolina Land and Home Realty.

According to Hertford County land records, the adjoining parcels are identified as 5993-01-5418 and 5993-01-3557.

Both parcels are undeveloped and neither is located within a flood zone or a hazard area. Each is located in an area zoned for Business, prompting town officials to say they are ideal for “further development for a commercial governmental site in the future.”

The Town of Ahoskie already owns the property adjoining these two parcels to the south (Pine Gate Apartments).

On a motion from Councilman Charles Reynolds and a second from Councilman David Hunt, the donation of land was approved by a 5-0 vote. It was stipulated in the motion that the legal closure of the land transfer must take place before Dec. 31 and that the current owners pay for all fees associated with the transfer as well as their share of the prorated property taxes.
