I have a parcel of land I'd like to sell off in my fair City. I've looked into this process, and there needs to be a determination of no public need, then a public hearing before Council on the same matter.
My question is this: Does the sale of the property need to be open to the public? I have a specific business in mind that wants to buy this property (local Eagles Chapter) that are on a budget, and a tight one at that. What I don't want is a bidding war that sees the Eagles stuck in their undersized, non-conforming location, and another business buying this to open yet another warehouse in a valuable downtown location.
Or does this simply smack of favoritism by wanting to keep it private?
There's a long story behind this, I'd love to get into, but lets just say angry neighbors and the Eagles aren't getting along right now.
