Land Transfer Program (LTP)
The purpose of the Land Transfer Program is to incentivize:
Specifically, this Program authorizes the City to sell qualifying city-owned real property and resell tax-foreclosed real property to for-profit, non-profit and/or religious organizations in a direct sale at less than fair market value of the land, consistent with the authorizing state statute or city ordinance.
The sale of real property pursuant to the Land Transfer Program will enable the City to facilitate the development of housing units that will be offered for sale, lease or lease-purchase to low- and moderate-income households and, on appropriate parcels of land, enable the City to facilitate the development of commercial uses such as neighborhood retail. Follow the link to view the Land Transfer Inventory List.
The operation of the Land Transfer Program shall align with the City's existing affordable housing production goals as outlined in the adopted Comprehensive Housing Policy. The portfolio of real property sold under this Program shall be developed to serve the range of income bands as well as the percentage of each income band identified in the production goals of the Comprehensive Housing Policy. To learn more, please read the Land Transfer Program Statement.
The Department of Housing & Neighborhood Revitalization presented an overview of the Land Development programs to the Housing and Homlessness Solutions (HHS) Committee on September 23, 2021.
