On Wednesday, February 18, Commissioner Nick Fish briefed City Council on a new surplus property policy developed by the Portland Water Bureau and the Bureau of Environmental Services (BES). The new policy guides the bureaus’ disposal of surplus properties and includes an increased level of public notification and opportunities for community involvement.
Here is a snapshot of the new way the Water Bureau does business around surplus property:

As part of the new policy, the Water Bureau developed a robust Surplus Property website. The properties are listed by geographic area (N, NE, NW, SE, and SW). Each property has a dedicated page that includes photos, site details, reason for intent to dispose, square footage, zoning, conditions of sale, and information on the surplus property’s stage of disposal.
The public can receive notification by e-mail when the Water Bureau posts new surplus property notifications on the website. Enroll here.
