Council To Consider Declaring 3936 Marlowe “Surplus Property”

June 6, 2008

Monday’s West University Place City Council may mark the beginning of the end of the 3936 Marlowe saga, a property that was involved in a four-year legal battle between the owner and the city due to zoning ordinance issues.

The house has been torn town, and the city owns the property. Council will consider Monday declaring the land “surplus property,” a requirement for the land to be sold. The lawsuit between the owner of the property and the city was settled in February, and the city bought the land for market value.

“The city hopes to recover, as much as possible, our out of pocket expenses associated with the property,” said City Manager Michael Ross.

Council will also consider the appointment of Debora Connelly to the Friends of West University Place Parks Fund Board.

The council meeting will take place at 6:30 p.m. in the Municipal Building, 3800 University Blvd.
