City of Lakewood Looks to Sell Some Land

City council approved the city’s planning and development department to market the sale of five city-owned pieces of property.

The city of Lakewood is selling some plots of land.

On Monday, city council approved the city’s planning and development department to market the sale of five city-owned pieces of property. 

Two of the properties, at 1195 Gladys Avenue and 2060 Marlowe Avenue, are expected to be renovated and sold by the end of the year.

The other properties — at 1459 Lakewood Avenue, 1548 Lakewood Avenue; 2042 Dowd Avenue — are vacant lots and will be put on the market.

Dru Siley, the city’s director of planning and development, said those homes will first be offered to neighbors.

“We’ll sell them at a very reasonable price,” he said. “We’re not looking to make any money. The real benefit is that we were able to eliminate a blighted property from the neighborhood.”

Using Neighborhood Stabilization dollars, the city has acquired abandoned properties or homes that were deemed a nuisance during the past couple years.

“Our hope is to sell all of those properties this year,” Siley said.
