This map is the Redevelopment Authority’s go-to site for anyone wanting to make an “Expression of Interest” to buy City-Owned property. It is not clear exactly how this effort will pan out and whether political influence is still required. The current system requires that anyone wanting to buy a vacant City-owned parcel would typically go to the Vacant Property Review Committee and present their case. Support form the Council member in whose district the property was located was essential to an approval from the VPRC.
Anyone out there have any success buying from the City?
