After selling 115 acres and more than 2,400 feet of shoreline Tuesday to the state of Florida, Jerry Dodd will still own between 500 and 600 feet of shoreline as well as 11 acres of waterfront property. Dodd had once planned a high-end subdivision on the property. However, less than a year ago, he sold 58 acres of the land to Jim Gissy, vice president of West Gate Resorts.
STATE BUYS MORE RIVER PROPERTY

For the second time in less than a year, Jerry Dodd has sold another portion of property he had proposed to develop into the Rainbow River Ranch when he acquired it in the mid-2000s.

His development proposal triggered a years’ long legal battle with Rainbow River Conservation and a number of individual interveners who fought to preserve the property.
