State Land Sales

The Department of State Lands (DSL) has an active program for land sales and exchanges. The agency’s Real Estate Asset Management Plan directs DSL to evaluate and sell smaller or difficult-to-manage lands. These sales have priority over land sales requested by individuals through the application process, which are initiated by submitting a land sale or exchange application, along with a $750 non-refundable application processing fee.

All land sales and exchanges are processed through the rules established in OAR 141-067. Parcels are carefully evaluated for the financial, natural, cultural and recreational impacts of the proposal. Adjacent property owners, interested parties, lessees (if applicable), and federal, state and local agencies are notified during the evaluation. DSL uses the information received to recommend to the Land Board whether or not to sell or exchange the parcels under study; the Land Board must also approve the final transaction.

Due Diligence for Potential Sale of School Lands

The Department of State Lands manages Oregon's school lands, which were granted by the federal government at statehood to help fund public schools. School lands are managed to generate revenue for the Common School Fund.

The Department conducts a due diligence process for all potential school land sales. During due diligence, DSL collects information about the many factors that affect a property's short-and-long-term potential to generate revenue for schools. For example, property information like zoning, accessibility, and proximity to infrastructure all help DSL evaluate the property's potential. Presence of mineral resources, cultural resources, or wildlife can also affect a property's potential. DSL also asks the public to comment on the potential sale.

Ultimately, due diligence helps answer the question of whether selling the property or keeping the property provides the best outcome for the Common School Fund and the people of Oregon.
