For Sale: West Palm Beach Sells Land to Raise Affordable Housing Funds
The City of West Palm Beach Department of Housing and Community Development announces that it is now making empty lots available for sale to the public.
WEST PALM BEACH, FLA. (March 16, 2017)—The City of West Palm Beach Department of Housing and Community Development announces that it is now making empty lots available for sale to the public. Proceeds from the sale of the properties will go to a Housing Trust Fund that will be used for the development of housing that is affordable for working families within the City of West Palm Beach. The public can now view the listings online.

“Making empty lots available for citizens to purchase not only allows for the City to place land back on the tax rolls and provide for development opportunities but also it will generate revenue from sales that will be used to develop housing that is affordable for residents of West Palm Beach,” said Armando Fana, Director of the Department of Housing and Community Development.

The listings now online represent the initial roll out. Over the next several months it is anticipated that several dozen lots will be made available for sale while others will be made available for donations to eligible non-profits to develop affordable housing opportunities.
