The former Addison Community Hospital property may have a buyer, after years of sitting vacant and being targeted by vandals.
The Addison Village Council on Monday heard an update from Butch Oatman and Larry Sant, who have expressed interest in purchasing the former hospital property and its nearly eight acres along U.S. 127. The property would be used for medical marijuana facility purposes, contingent on the purchase agreement being finalized next week.
Oatman and Sant met with building inspector Marty Taylor and went over a two-phase site plan, village officials said. The pair reported they have a license pre-approved through the state. The pair also gave the Lenawee County Land Bank, which currently owns the hospital property, proposals for Phase 1 and Phase 2, the details of which were not immediately disclosed. A partially collapsed house also sits on the hospital property. The village mill pond lies along the property’s eastern boundary.
Tim Robinson, director of operations at Lenawee Now, confirmed Tuesday a purchase agreement is currently being worked on for the former hospital property. Lenawee Now manages the county’s land bank.
