Policies - Acquisition

City property acquisition policy adopted by Resolution 29799 encourages the coordination and review of potential property acquisitions by City departments. Prospective acquisitions may be subject to a general feasibility analysis as well as a site-specific analysis to consider issues and impacts that may result from an acquisition. Factors may include adopted City plans and policies, possible co-location opportunities at existing City facilities, community impacts and other concerns.

City policy calls for review of proposed acquisitions by the interdepartmental Real Estate Oversight Committee and by Real Estate Services. Transportation and utility projects located in existing right of way are exempted from this review.
