Municipal Lot Sales Program
The purpose of the policy is to encourage residential development and provide a format for individuals to purchase municipally owned residential lots at a low price.
 
Purchasers may enter into an offer to purchase one of the available lots within the municipality with a deposit of $1,000.00 per lot. The selling price will be $10.00 per lot. If this offer is not acted upon within a 90-day period, the applicant will forfeit the $1,000.00 deposit per lot. The purchaser is responsible for all legal costs associated with the sale of the property. The municipality shall keep an up to date listing of available lots under this program. 
 
The building process must commence within 90 days of the date of the offer and construction completed 12 months from that date.  When construction and lot landscaping is completed and an occupancy permit is issued, the municipality shall refund $990.00 of the $1,000.00 deposit. 
 
In the event that a second individual indicates interest in the property at any time the person who requested the first right of refusal will have 14 days to invoke their right and make an offer to purchase the said property or the subsequent offer to purchase may be accepted. 15 days prior to the expiration date of the first right of refusal, the Municipality shall contact the person granted first right of refusal to advise of the upcoming deadline.

The municipality reserves the right to limit or deny approval of the option to purchase at their discretion.
