CLEARFIELD -- An undeveloped and vacant parcel is being exchanged for a larger parcel of land.
The city owns what is considered a significant parcel of real property near the northeast corner of the Freeport Center in Clearfield. Clearfield has no valuable or beneficial use for this small, narrow strip of property, according to the approved resolution.
Therefore, the city is exchanging the land for a more useful parcel.
Freeport Center Associates owns a larger, 0.84-acre parcel adjacent to the one owned by the city. Clearfield could use this land to expand and improve its current storm water detention basins and facilitate expansion of State Road 193, according to the resolution.
Both parties have agreed to the exchange. The city council recently authorized this exchange following a public hearing.
At a recent meeting, the council approved a slight modification to the agreement, which includes more accurate legal descriptions and a map.
