The Board had obtained at least three separate appraisals on the AG Garden property over the past few years. Each appraisal reflected a large decrease in the property value, marking its decline in value. (This land is zoned residential and is directly adjacent to EMWD's existing facilities with easements already held on a portion of the land, thus making the possibility of housing less likely in the recent real estate market decline.) EMWD offered $405,000.00 for the AG Garden, which is $5,000.00 over the current appraised value of $400,000.00.
