State set to auction two Geneseo land parcels
Two parcels of surplus state-owned land in the Town of Geneseo will be auctioned Feb. 27 in the state’s Surplus Property Program. The program is aimed at returning properties no longer needed to local citizens who can better care for and develop the land.
They are part of a package of nine parcels, including five in Monroe County and two in Ontario County, which the state Department of Transportation will sell to the highest bidders.
The parcels had been acquired by the state for highway improvements. What remains is no longer needed for transportation purposes.
The land auction is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Feb. 27 in the NYSDOT Regional Office, 1530 Jefferson Rd., Henrietta. Registration will begin at 9:30 a.m. The auction is open to the public.
The Town of Geneseo parcels being auctioned are:
- 14 acres of landlocked vacant land east of Interstate 390 and south of Lima Road. Bidding will begin at $7,000.
- 25.9 acres of heavily wooded and landlocked vacant land south of Lima Road and east of a Niagara Mohawk utility corridor. Bidding will begin at $13,000.
Additional information, including maps, values, deposits and starting bid prices for each are listed on the state’s website at www.dot.ny.gov/r4surplus.
Prospective bidders are advised to research local municipal zoning requirements before placing bids.
