As I expected, the "Conley Plaintiffs" today filed a motion to continue that Nov. 14th hearing. The proposed order is awaiting a determination/signature by the Honorable Judge Deller.

Today Judge Deller denied the attempt to delay the sale of lot 5 by the group of property owners. The Judge also issued a modified order granting the motion to sell the property free and clear. Apparently Judge Deller decided to kick the can back at the County Court for once! <humor intended>

The Meadville Tribune reported yesterday that aprx half of the long term lot lease holders in the park have gotten back with the CLP trustees and expressed an interest in obtaining ownership of their lots.

For new readers, the Tribune reports the park leases aprx 170 lots throughout the park, and most lessees own the structures built on the leased lots. The park has expressed a desire to exit their landlord role and is offering the leaseholders the opportunity to own the property rather than continuing to lease their lots from the park.

In October the park sent out letters to holders of the 99 and 999 year leased lots inquiring if the lessees were interested in purchasing and owning their leased lots.

The park estimates the cost to current lessees purchasing their lot to be aprx $500 to cover county filing fees and attorney costs.
 
The park notes they have yet to hear back from aprx 50 of all lease holders, and will continue efforts to contact the lessees of record for those lots. If the lease holders can not be contacted, the park states it may have to file action in bankruptcy court to either terminate or convert those leases in order for the park to offer the property for sale.

The paper reports once the park determines the final number of leaseholders desiring ownership of their lots, the park will file with the bankruptcy court for approving the transfer of the ownership of those lots. There has been no reporting on the disposition of leased lots where the leaseholders actively decline to seek or obtain ownership of their lots.

The map posted below shows the EPACC’s determination of the currently CLP owned lots and which are under lease, tinted in yellow, that park is endeavoring to transfer ownership to current lessees-

On a related side note, in addition to their endeavoring ending their the landlord role and the leasing of residential lots in the park, per the park’s approved bankruptcy plan, the trustees are in the process of selling off “surplus” properties which do not contribute to or impacts the operation of the park. The ‘excess’ properties the park has identified as “surplus” and intends to sell are tinted in green on the EPACC map posted below.

According to the park’s approved bankruptcy plan, after the ownership of all the now CLP leased lots and ‘surplus/excessive’ properties are transferred and/or sold, the park property will then consist of the area tinted in blue, as reflected on the EPACC map posted below.

Thanks for the info JT. I saw that posted on the court web site last week, but I haven't had the chance to follow up on it. There has been a rumor floating around that they were looking to get a lot near the campground and may have a small grocery section in it. The campground store doesn't usually carry a large selection of those type items. I wonder if there is going to be a "no competition" clause. LOL 

Anyone have an update on the construction on the lakefront? That being the new Lot 2 house or the rehab of the McClure Farmhouse?

from what I could tell on the Barbara J light tour, the house on Lot 2 is under roof and shell and looks great, bigger than I imagined would fit on that lot and still meet the current zoning side yard requirements...

Here is a little holiday taste for all of you who can't get to the lake for the winter season.

I had the pleasure of taking the Barbara J cruise this past weekend with some great people. The hotel was packed with a company Christmas Party and looks great decorated for the season.

McCure House update: The structure has had a brand new peak roof installed and looks HUGE. You can't miss it now, even in the dark.

The new residence on lot 2 has been completely framed and is dried in, meaning it is not open to the elements. It looks amazing from the park, and the lake.

Another worthy note is the fact that Reed Ave where it ends at Lake Front St. has been officially re-routed back by the old beach club site. You have to turn down a temporary road that crosses the old parking lot behind the park office. This will take some time to get used to.

Here are some selected pics for your enjoyment!

In regards to the current case of the Trustees of CLP vs. Park Restoration for damages incurred as a result of the Beach Club not returned in "broom clean" condition, it seems that the Attorney(s) for the Trustee's dropped the ball by not filing appropriate motions and responses, and failed to offer facts to back their damages argument. Even the Judge was incredulous to the fact that counsel failed to offer, or even file, the appropriate responses.

Park Restoration was successful in their argument that the property post fire was worth more without the Beach Club on it. The Trustees tried to apply a faulty appraisal process by not formulating value based on a residential use. Information from their bankruptcy paperwork threw their theory into question, and the Judge rightfully penalized them for their sloppiness. PR's counsel was not too far above the Trustee's counsel in that he too tried some underhanded tactics by not providing discovery in a timely manner and attempting to introduce exhibits not submitted to the Trustees before the hearing. The court noted that this was done not once, but twice.

Interestingly, the court noted why they have approved the Flynn Lots for sale free and clear of charitable use restrictions......... because nobody filed an objection. Therefore the court has granted those without scrutiny. Maybe, if the park does try and sell the Beach Club property free and clear, a resident - or lien holder - should file an objection and force the court to hold a hearing. From my research, any resident or property owner in the immediate area can file an objection and have standing under the PA Constitution, and a hearing must be conducted.

Perhaps the Trustees should have had an affidavit from the PA Attorney General stating that it would object to any removal of the charitable use restriction on that property because it it considered "core property". Even their land use plans conflicted.

How much cash did the Trustees dole out for this representation???

In the end, the Trustees get ZERO damages awarded, zilch, zip, NADA!! But I suppose the funds raised to help replace the Beach Club are still gaining interest....... right?

Court Opinion:
Quote
For the reasons above, this Court finds that the preponderance of the  evidence is that TCLP has not proven that it incurred damages and relief  is denied as to Count I of the Complaint only. An appropriate order shall be issued in accordance herewith.

Kudos to PR for dodging that award, but keep in mind, you were found guilty of breach of contract, the Trustees and their lawyers incompetence provided a nice Christmas Gift. In the end, any award that would have been granted would not have been enough to replace the structure.

Would we have the circus continue any other way? On to the next shenanigans......

Edit Add: Forgot to mention that the Bankruptcy Court issued a modified order approving the sale of the front parking lot parcel that a dollar store wishes to purchase. The Conneaut Joint Municipal Authority did file an objection to the sale of that property, but I have not been able to read that opinion yet. Unknown what the modifications were to the terms of the sale. Stay tuned...
