Oregon Parks and Recreation Deparment now taking sealed bids to sell unused parcel near Monroe

Oct. 19, 2017 Bid period is closed

Sept. 27, 2017​

Salem OR -- The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department is now taking sealed bids from any party interested in purchasing an undeveloped, approximately 38-acre property near the Benton-Lane County border. Sealed bids are due no later than October 17, 2017. 

The property on 99W was formerly used as a highway wayside, but the restroom and sewage systems failed ten years ago and the facilities were removed. The property has been considered a candidate for disposal since 2014, and department property staff have been preparing it for sale for more than six months. An appraisal places the market value at $356,000. As required by state law, the property was first offered to other public agencies before being considered for public sale, but there were no takers. 

If successful, funds from the sale will be placed in a special account used for property transactions that improve the overall state park system. The state park system both acquires and transfers properties out on a fairly regular basis as a way to improve outdoor recreation, protect key natural resources, and preserve important historic sites. The parcel offered for sale was originally acquired in 1926.

More information on the sale and a bid form is available from Kammie Bunes, Oregon Parks and Recreation Department Right of Way Agent, at 503-986-0630 (kammie.bunes@oregon.gov).
