Wetaskiwin’s visitor centre building back on the market

Surplus property relisted due to purchaser not meeting sale conditions: city

It looks like the deal’s off.

The City of Wetaskiwin announced Nov. 13 that a deal struck earlier this year to sell the surplus visitor information centre, located on Hwy. #2A right across from the water tower, for over $800,000 won’t be going ahead after all.

According to a press release from the city, “The municipally-owned surplus property located at 4910 – 55A Street in Wetaskiwin has been listed on multiple real estate websites due to the conditions of the previous sale agreement not being met.

“The surplus property—on which the Visitor Information Building and Peace Cairn sit—was approved for sale in August, 2018 by city council for $830,000.

“The purchaser was expected to take possession mid-October once the conditions of the sale were met. A deadline extension was granted to assist the buyer in meeting these conditions, but was still unsuccessful in doing so.

“The Visitor Information Centre located at 4910 – 55A Street, Wetaskiwin remains closed to the public. Local brochures and Travel Alberta information can still be found at Wetaskiwin City Hall (4705 – 50 Avenue).”
