In the last 10 years, the City has sold more than $84 million of surplus real estate (returning that property to the City’s tax rolls). Asset Management generates approximately $2.3 million per year in gross revenue for the City through the lease of real property and manages more than 100 leases for the City as both lessor and lessee.
Additionally, the section's staff support the goal of preserving and protecting one of the City's important natural resources, its nationally recognized tree canopy, through Tree Canopy Preservation Program (TCPP) acquisitions. These acquisitions are voluntary sales by private property owners or through conservation organizations. For more information or to discuss property conservation with City staff, please contact Amanda L. Byrum
