Paducah requesting proposals for City-owned surplus property
PADUCAH - The City of Paducah is requesting sealed proposals for the purchase and transfer of 28 pieces of city-owned property. All of the parcels are vacant lots that the City has acquired by various means throughout the years.
Anyone interested in acquiring one or more of these lots, they should submit a written offer to purchase the property including the purchase price offer, the intended use of the property, purchaser’s full name, address, and telephone number in a sealed envelope clearly marked “Sealed Bid” with the address of the property marked on the outside. Proposals can be mailed to:
City of Paducah Planning Department
For additional information, please call the Planning Department at (270)444-8690. All such sealed proposals should be submitted to the Planning Department prior to 9 a.m. CDT on May 21, 2012. At that time, the proposals will be opened in the Commission Chambers of City Hall.
Transfer of this property will be based on the best-evaluated future use of the property, highest bid, and compliance with applicable codes. To be considered for these properties bidders must be current on City taxes and have no existing liens on any property currently owned in the City of Paducah.
The address, lot dimensions, zoning information, and an aerial map of each piece of property are available on the City's website. Click here, then click on ‘City Surplus Property’ on the left side of the homepage.
Approximately two years ago, the City inventoried its property and identified 62 pieces of property to be considered surplus. Some of the properties were later deemed not surplus. 21 of the properties have been transferred with 28 vacant properties remaining.
