Roae Measure Brings Meadville Armory Step Closer to Sale
7/16/2009
Rep. Brad Roae (R-Crawford) said today the now vacant National Guard Armory at Diamond Park in Meadville is one step closer to being sold and put back into productive use. 
 
Roae said he was successful in getting an amendment passed on another state land sale bill to allow the former armory to be sold.
 
“The unit that was at the armory is now stationed at the new National Guard facility in Cambridge Springs,” Roae said. “Most of that unit is in Iraq now.”  
 
The amendment was approved Monday and the bill itself was unanimously approved Wednesday and sent to the state Senate for consideration.
 
“In May, House Bill 809, which I sponsored and that authorized the sale of the armory, was approved in the House State Government Committee, but it was bogged down with a controversial amendment filed by another representative,” Roae said.
 
“Fortunately, I was able to rewrite House Bill 809 and filed it as an amendment to House Bill 1030 that was on the voting schedule.”   
 
If the Senate passes House Bill 1030 and it is signed by the governor, the state would be authorized to sell the building to the highest bidder by either a public auction or sealed bids.
 
The state’s Administrative Code requires legislative authorization for the conveyance of, easement of, or right-of-way to Commonwealth land.
