Orange County Government staff are currently negotiating a Termination Agreement with the onePulse Foundation, following the dissolution of the organization – which had been awarded $10 million in Tourist Development Taxes in 2018 to help purchase land for a planned museum.

The foundation used the funds to purchase the property at 438 W. Kaley Street [GMap] and is now saying they are unable to pay back the funds. As part of the effort to collect those funds, the county was given the property which is estimated at roughly $2.7 million, along with over $50,000 in unpaid property taxes.

County staff are requesting that they be approved to pay for the remaining taxes on the property before April 1, to avoid any penalties or added interest.
