UAMS to pay city for Ray Winder soon

Posted By on Sat, Jan 22, 2011 at 9:36 AM

Yesterday’s news that St. Vincent Health will build St. Vincent West on 37 acres next to the Promenade at Chenal, an outpatient facility that will cost $18 million in its first two phases, reminded us that UAMS has bought land at Rodney Parham and Cantrell for future expansion, at a price of $3.65 million. And that made us wonder — when will UAMS fork over the $1 million-plus it has offered to pay the city for its portion of Ray Winder Field?

Soon, says Assistant City Manager Bryan Day. Director Brad Cazort inquired about the status of the deal during Tuesday’s board meeting; City Attorney Tom Carpenter said he’s still dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s. Day anticipates the agreement will still need some adjustments when it comes before the board, but that the city is getting close to getting a check.

The final price has apparently been agreed on — Mayor Mark Stodola was holding out for more than the initial $1.1 million offer — but we are still trying to find out what that number is.
