Sale Partnership Program

The Sale Partnership Program is a new Commonwealth - Municipal Land Disposition Model that allows a municipality to purchase and market (to private development community) former state surplus real estate assets that have significant economic redevelopmen

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.
