McCrory says he still wants Dix park to work

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

Gov. Pat McCrory says he's aiming to reach a renegotiated agreement by early December with Raleigh over the city's effort to turn the campus of now-closed Dorothea Dix mental hospital into a regional park.
    
McCrory made the comments before big-city mayors dined with him Wednesday at the Executive Mansion. Raleigh Mayor Nancy McFarlane stood beside McCrory and other mayors as he took questions.
    
Then-Gov. Beverly Perdue agreed late last year to lease the Dix property to Raleigh, but Republican lawmakers didn't like the terms. Legislators couldn't agree what to do next, so McCrory and Raleigh officials delayed the lease until next June to allow for new negotiations.
    
McCrory says he wants the park plan to work also must protect the state's interests. State employees still work on the campus.
