Escambia County to buy "Eyesore" land

ESCAMBIA COUNTY   --  Escambia County commissioners have decided to purchase a piece of land that neighbors call an eyesore.

It was once the site of the Soule Marine Company.
The land is made up of two properties located next to each other between "P" Street and Pace Boulevard in Brownsville.
The purchase will be paid for with county sales tax revenue as part of an effort to clean-up the community.

County staff members say the goal is to clean up the land and eventually find a buyer in the private sector that could develop the properties.
