IMPORTANT UPDATE 03/07/2022: The City Council for The City of Johnson City has discussed land use / zoning concerns of potential purchasers for this property. The City Council thereby fully expects and encourages any purchaser to request rezoning to a residential or commercial zoning designation. It is the City Attorney’s opinion that the City Council could rezone the property to either zoning designation and therefore has provided this notice.
Rezoning of Property Upon Sale: Zoning of a property in the City is made pursuant to the City’s Zoning Ordinance and State Law. A property owner may request a property be rezoned at any time. Requests for rezoning are ultimately decided by the City Council. A rezoning request may be granted so long as a request is in accordance with the City’s Zoning Ordinance and State Law. This property is presently zoned “Public Facilities District”, with uses of a property specified for public purposes. Following purchase, a buyer is entitled to submit for consideration by the City Council a request for rezoning to allow for a different use, such as a commercial or residential use.” 
Notice of Restriction: This property is posted for sale as one whole tract. This tract consists of two deeds: a general warranty deed and a gift deed. The General Warranty Deed includes the Police Department building, adjacent parking, and land described in the field notes for that deed. The Gift Deed includes the building (log cabin) described as a museum and the land upon which it sits, as described in field notes. This portion of the property was gifted to the City with a ‘reversionary clause’. This clause states that the property “shall revert unconditionally to Grantor, her heirs, successors and assigns” should the real property and improvements (that is, the museum / log cabin building) no longer be used for a museum. Notice is provided that sale of this portion of the whole property is being conducted subject to this restriction, the reversionary interest.
For additional clarification of the above listed deed restriction please see the following.
Seller stated that the City has never declared / registered the log building as a historic structure and that the building is NOT a historic structure according to the Texas Historical Commission. Once sold, the new property owner would be able to do whatever they deem necessary to the log building.
