Sarasota County to accept proposals for surplus lands sale

Sarasota County, Florida -- Beginning Aug. 1, Sarasota County will accept proposals on the possible sale and use of land parcels deemed to be surplus property.

The Sarasota County Surplus Land Code, approved by the Sarasota County Commission on July 10, sets forth procedures for the sale or lease of real property owned by the county. Sarasota County Procurement staff will soon begin  accepting proposals from individuals or businesses registered to do business with the county on the possible sale of a 42-acre parcel of surplus land located just east of the Fruitville Library at the intersection of Fruitville Road and Coburn Road, Sarasota, and a 1-acre property located at 20 N. Washington Blvd., Sarasota.

Both of these parcels were determined to be eligible for surplus and the Sarasota County Commission approved the Invitation to Negotiate (ITN) process to publicly notice an interest in receiving proposals. In accordance with the county's Surplus Property Ordinance, the evaluation process for these particular parcels will consider various factors, including a development plan, ability to perform and terms of the property purchase.

Prospective buyers must be registered in Sarasota County's eProcure system in order to submit a proposal. Registering to do business with Sarasota County is free.

As directed by the Sarasota County Commission, both parcels will be advertised and proposals will be accepted for 45 days. Sarasota County staff will then review all the proposals and present them to the Sarasota County Commission for consideration. The commission will have the final say on accepting or declining any or all of the proposals, and will direct staff to negotiate with a preferred respondent. Interested parties should monitor the release of the solicitation and carefully review the property information, perform their own due diligence and closely follow the response requirements.
