Properties owned by the landbank may be currently leased, used by an existing department or committed and approved but awaiting settlement. Only available properties are shown here.
This table is intended to show the status of applications moving through the disposition process. The table shows all applications submitted into the Land Management portal from July 1, 2021 to March 1, 2022. Some project extend from one fiscal year to another, so the Board Stage, City Council Stage and Settlement Stage include some applications for land that started in prior fiscal.
