Form-Donation of Real Estate


On a case-by-case basis, the City will consider donations of privately owned vacant structures or residential vacant lots. Donations must be useful for a City project or program, or other municipal purposes to be accepted.


  • Preference will be given for parcels that meet or exceed the City's standards for buildable residential lots
  • Consult your tax adviser, as a property donation may offer you a tax deduction
  • The City will not accept properties with liens or encumbrances (unpaid taxes or liens). The property owner must pay all debt and provide clear title to the donated property.
  • Lien holders may donate their interests in a property. 
  • Commercial or industrial lands or properties where contamination is suspected will require an environmental audit prior to acceptance. 
  • All donations are subject to approval by City Council
