Bristol pulls plug on property buy

BRISTOL — The town of Bristol has decided not to buy the property at 76 West St.
The town had signed a purchase agreement for the property in August 2018, for the price of $166,500, and hoped to consolidate Bristol Recreation Department activities at that address. But in November the Bristol Recreation Community Steering Committee voted down a plan to develop a new recreation center there.
Still hoping to use the property in some way, the town submitted to a counteroffer after the property was inspected, but the owners rejected that offer.
On Jan. 21 the selectboard voted to terminate the purchase agreement.
The Recreation Department will continue exploring options for a new community center, said Town Administrator Valerie Capels.
