REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS - Surplus Land Public Sale, Lease, or Exchange

1. Purpose

The City of Arvin is seeking proposals for the purchase of certain surplus properties. At the April 27, 2021 City meeting, the City Council for the City of Arvin approved Resolution 2021-27 and Exhibit A thereto, which listed ten (10) Successor-Agency Owned Real properties as surplus. The minutes from the meeting were approved on May 13, 2021.

In compliance with the procedures set forth in the Surplus Land Act, Notice that the City intended to sell the surplus properties was sent on September 13, 2021to the Department of Housing and Community Development (“HCD”), local public entities within the jurisdiction where the surplus land is located, and housing sponsors who had notified HCD of their interest in surplus land for developing affordable low- and moderate-income housing. (Gov. Code § 54222.) Because the City only received Written Notice of Interest related to one (1) surplus designated property within 60 days, the City may issue a Request for Proposal (“RFP”) to the general public in order to sell, lease, or transfer the other nine (9) Surplus Properties to a private individual or business. (Gov. Code § 54233.)

2. Submission Process

Your Proposal for acquiring the surplus property from this Request for Proposals shall be delivered to:

City of Arvin

Attn: City Manager

200 Campus Drive

Arvin, CA 93203

You may also direct any questions you may have to or by calling 661-854-3134. Those submitting a Proposal are advised to review the requirements set forth in Title 5, Division 2, Part 1, Chapter 5, Article 8 of the Government Code to ensure compliance and understanding of surplus land.

3. Timeline

If you are interested in purchasing surplus property, your Proposal must be submitted by 5 pm on Thursday, March 10, 2022. Proposals should include six (6) physical copies of all documents and a USB drive containing the complete Proposal packet by the deadline stated above.
