VDOT made an offer for the property. We paid for a 2nd apprisal which was higher, and submitted it to VDOT. VDOT agreed to raise their initial offer. We are in the process of deciding whether to accept their 2nd office with an increased amount or proceed to litigation with VDOT Lawyers. Once it is determined which option to recommend, the recommendation must be approved by the church Conference, the Annual Conference, and the Senior AME Trustee Board representing the 2nd DIstrict.

The FAME Acquisition Committee met 11/19/2021 to revise our relocation strategy based on replacement sizing based on the current membership, the impact of virtual services and the fact people are reluctant to return in person, and what we can afford based on the current tithing level. The primary goal is for VDOT to provide FAME with a comparable property in the area.
