NC Senate seeks to wipe out Dix lease

A state Senate bill seeks to change the lease between the state and the City of Raleigh for Dorothea Dix property.SB 334 directs the state and the city to enter into a new lease that is at fair market value and upholds the property’s commitment to serving the mentally ill.

The current contract calls for the city to pay $500,000 a year with a 1.5 percent annual increase to lease a portion of the property for fair market value. Raleigh intends to build a park on the property.

The bill would put an end to plans to move state Department of Health and Human Services employees. Any revenues from the property lease would go into a special fund for mental health.

McCrory listed as advisor to Dix park plan he now wants delayed

The roster of leaders guiding the Dix Visionaries' effort to turn the Dorothea Dix property into a park includes one name that stands out: Pat McCrory.

The Republican governor-elect is listed among 80 members of the Dix Visionaries Business Advisory Council. But now McCrory is seeking to block an effort by the Dix Visionaries and Democratic Gov. Bev Perdue to approve a plan in December to lease the property to the city for a park.

A spokesman for McCrory's transition team said Wednesday that McCrory has never been involved with Dix Visionaries. But the group disagrees.
