State close to deal for Avatar land

Published Sep. 27, 2006
Local officials are optimistic that a deal for the state to buy thousands of acres of environmentally sensitive land near Silver Springs could be completed this week.

Two things must happen first, according to Marion County Commissioner Randy Harris. The governor and Cabinet have to approve the deal, the price of which is still undisclosed, and the board of Avatar Corp., the property owner, would have to accept the state's offer.
