Lingering lots
City still owns Main Street property
Pictured are the remains of 207 and 209 E. Main Street on March 29, 2008 after a fire struck the night before. The topic of selling the two city-owned lots has been mentioned again in a city meeting.
McMinnville officials are considering a measure to liquidate two empty lots on Main Street after a failed attempt in 2012.Approximately five years ago, the lots located at 207 and 209 E. Main Street were declared surplus and sealed bids were accepted. Minimum bids of $24,000 and $22,000, respectively, were placed and based on the properties appraised values at that time. Consideration was given to placing a requirement for the new owner(s) to build.
