Land swap? Reports indicate that Geneva lakefront property could be developed

The Geneva Believer reports that new talks could be underway to move a parcel owned by the city of Geneva, which is located directly between the city line and Seneca County.

“In the summer of 2016, City Council began taking steps to quietly sell a seven-acre parcel of city-owned land, adjacent to Lakefront Park, to a local developer,” the Believer reports.

“The sale was announced in November, causing a public uproar, and then canceled later that fall. In the spring of 2017, the City’s Board of Ethical Review concluded that City Council and former City Manager Matt Horn violated the Code of Ethics by failing to properly notify the public of the sale.”

Now, it seems that parcel could be on the selling block again.
