The Process

The City Council declared the property surplus on February 28, 2011 and determined a sealed bid process would be the first method used to offer the properties for sale, following Bellingham Municipal Code 4.84.020 . An appraisal will determine the minimum bid for each property.

 Because no bids were submitted to the Purchasing Division by June 8, 2011, the Real Property Manager returned to the City Council to request listing the properties with the Multiple Listings service. Properties are now listed.
