City council voted unanimously May 20 to authorize the $416,000 purchase of 22 acres located near the Chattahoochee River and contained within Riverside Drive, Brandon Mill Road and River Court Parkway.

The property is known as “Lost Corners Preserve” and will be purchased from the Trust for Public Land. The current long-term owner will retain a life estate on the property and wishes to remain anonymous.

The Georgia Land Conservancy Council is expected to grant the city $250,000 for the purchase with the stipulation the land is used for passive educational and recreational uses.
