Sale Partnership

The Sale Partnership Program is a Commonwealth - Municipal Land Disposition Model that  allows a municipality to purchase and market (to the private development community) state surplus real estate assets in the municipality which have significant economic redevelopment potential and are located within their municipality.  When the municipality resells/leases all or a portion of the asset, the net sale proceeds are shared between the Commonwealth and the municipality.  Throughout the reuse planning, marketing and resale contract negotiations, DCAMM is available to provide technical assistance to the municipality.  Currently the following municipalities are participating in the Sale Partnership Program:  Westborough, North Reading and Medfield.
