The City Council is authorizing the potential sale of two parcels of city-owned land in the downtown area to promote job creation.
City staff requested that council consider the sale of two 25-by-140-foot city-owned lots located near the southeast corner of Main Street and Coolidge Avenue at Monday’s council meeting. The properties are zoned for heavy industrial use.
“The city has property that it acquires from time to time through a variety of different methods,” said Development Services Director Gilbert Lopez. “If we’re not going to utilize it for a public purpose like a park or something else, it’s appropriate that we sell the property through a public process.”
