ORDINANCE NO. BL2001-754
An ordinance approving a lease of premises by The Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County, acting through the Metropolitan Board of Fair Commissioners, to Senior Citizens, Inc. for a Senior Citizens Center.
Whereas, the Metropolitan Board of Fair Commissioners and Senior Citizens, Inc. have negotiated a ground lease for premises located on the property commonly known as the Tennessee State Fairgrounds (hereinafter "Fairgrounds"); and,
Whereas, the lease provides that Senior Citizens, Inc. will erect, operate, and maintain a senior citizens center to be used as a civic and activity center for senior citizens in a manner that will not interfere with the annual Tennessee State Fair; and,
Whereas, the Metropolitan Charter grants the Metropolitan Board of Fair Commissioners the authority to lease the Fairgrounds for amusement purposes; however, the use of the Senior Citizens Center will not be restricted to amusement purposes; and,
Whereas, it is therefore proper for the Metropolitan Council to approve the lease as provided in Section 2.24.210 of the Metropolitan Code; and,
Whereas, the lease agreement between the Metropolitan Board of Fair Commissioners and Senior Citizens, Inc. is in the public interest.
