Purchasing Vacant Surplus City-Owned Land

Types of Surplus Land

There are two types of surplus land:

  • Undevelopable property which will be offered only to adjacent landowners
  • Developable property that can independently be improved which will be sold by a "sealed bid" process

Note: Vacant land that is part of the right-of-way which includes undeveloped streets and alleys is required to go through the Street Closure Petition (Planning Department).

The City will not furnish nor be responsible for an appraisal, a survey, a title examination, or a subdivision plat.

If an appraisal, survey, or subdivision plat is required by the City, the successful buyer will be responsible for the cost.
