Under the direction of the 2013-15 state biennial budget bill, the Natural Resources Board (NRB) on February 24, 2016 met to review our recommendations for the second phase of land sales.

The department released an initial list of 118 parcels to be reviewed by staff in July 2015. During the review process, an additional 31 parcels were identified for possible sale.

Final recommendations from the NRB include 81 parcels, totaling 5,633 acres to be offered for sale:

  • 24 parcels, totaling 2,805 acres, to be offered to municipalities and tribal nations;
  • 33 parcels, totaling 2,004 acres, to be offered only to adjoining landowners; and
  • 24 parcels, totaling 824 acres, to be offered for sale through a public bidding process.

Specific information related to the marketing of parcels available for public bid will be made available as the marketing occurs. In addition to phase two land sale recommendations, the department recommended that 35 parcels, totaling 1,632 acres, be retained by the department and 32 parcels, totaling 2,195 acres, be held for further study in the next phase.

In June 2014 the NRB approved 22 parcels, totaling 1407 acres, as a part of the first phase of land sales. Eighteen of the 22 parcels have been marketed resulting in 11 sales, totaling 394 acres, and generating approximately $637,000 in sale proceeds. Four of the parcels were acquired partially with federal funds and the department is finalizing a process with the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service to release those parcels for sale.

Parcels recommended to the Natural Resources Board (NRB)

* The NRB directed the department to make changes to these parcels at its February 24, 2016 meeting.
