Cities support bill that would allow greater certainty in selling off-street parking

HB 2292, Rep. Monica Stonier (D-Vancouver), would grant a city legislative authority to sell, transfer, exchange, lease or otherwise dispose of real property obtained for off-street parking. HB 2292 allows for this under three conditions:

  1. When the legislative body has determined by ordinance that such property is no longer necessary for off-street parking purposes;
  2. When all bonds issued for acquisition and construction have been paid in full; or
  3. When the properties within any local improvement district created for the acquisition or construction of off-street parking facilities are no longer subject to any assessment for such purpose.

Up to this point there has been uncertainty if cities have had the authority to do this.

HB 2292 had a public hearing in the House Local Government Committee on January 16.
