The St. Louis County Land and Minerals Department is responsible for nearly 900,000 acres of state tax forfeited land.
Next week, the County will team up with the City of Duluth to hold the largest tax forfeited land sale yet.
The upcoming public sale will help create development opportunities in Morgan Park, Gary-New Duluth and Park Point.
This month’s sale is special because it marks the largest ever offered by the County with the nearly 40 piece of land adding up to $1.5 million.
Large properties for sale include a 3.1 acre parcel on Park Point, two sites on 88th Avenue West and a site on Commonwealth Avenue.
The County and City hope to expand the property tax base and benefit all citizens.
“Those people that are paying property taxes in our region are shouldering a higher burden than other areas across the entire state. So, what we are doing is a part of our conscious effort to put properties back on the tax role to spread this pain out,” said St. Louis County Commissioner, Chris Dahlberg.
Any properties that are not sold will be available for sale on a first come, first serve basis.
The properties will be available for auction Thursday, June 11th at 10 a.m. at the Depot.
Other properties being offered at the auction are in Ely, Hibbing and Proctor.
