The state Department of Transportation will auction five parcels of land in Monroe and Livingston counties, as well as property in Chemung and Steuben counties, as part of the state’s Surplus Property Program.
The program is aimed at returning properties no longer needed to the hands of local citizens who can better care for and develop the land, the state said.
“Disposing of surplus property no longer needed by the state saves taxpayer money by eliminating maintenance costs and liabilities, while increasing local revenues by returning the property to local tax rolls,” DOT Regional Director Kevin Bush said in a statement.
The properties in Monroe County include a 1.75 acre vacant lot on the northwest corner of Goodman Street and Uhlen Place, as well as a more than half-acre parcel on the southwest corner of the same streets. A nearly one acre lot on the northwest corner of Route 531 and Route 259 in Ogden also is to be auctioned.
In the town of Geneseo, two lots set to be auctioned include more than 14 acres of landlocked vacant land east of I-390 and south of Lima Road, as well as nearly 26 acres of heavily wooded, landlocked vacant property south of Lima Road and east of a Niagara Mohawk utility corridor.
The auction is slated to be held Oct. 14 at the DOT regional office on Jefferson Road in Henrietta. A brochure with maps and minimum bidding prices can be found at dot.ny.gov/r4surplus.
