The City of Cumberland is making City-owned real estate available for purchase through a Sealed Bid Sale Process. The application process for this program evaluates the vision and plan for a property in combination with an offer price. The goal of the program is to return properties to the private sector for their highest and best use.
Seven properties, ranging from buildable residential lots to adjacent lots to a candidate for rehabilitation, are open for bid until March 22, 2023. Interested bidders must obtain the bid packet from the Community Development Department in City Hall and must place bids utilizing the forms included in the packet.
Additional details surrounding the properties, as well as information on obtaining the bid packet can be found on the City’s website at: http://www.ci.cumberland.md.us/671/Round-6-Surplus-Property-Sale.
Sealed proposals addressed to the Mayor and City Council will be received at the office of the City Clerk, City Hall, Cumberland, Maryland 21502, until but not after 2:00 p.m., local time, on Wednesday, March 22, 2023. Proposals will be opened and read at 2:30 p.m. on that date in the City Hall Council Chambers.
The City also has a group of properties, considered buildable or adjacent lots, available through the Ongoing Surplus Property Sale. Bids for these properties may be submitted at any time – the list of these may be viewed at: http://www.ci.cumberland.md.us/622/Ongoing-Surplus-Sale.
