The City of New Britain is soliciting proposals for the development of City-owned properties. The sale of these properties represents an opportunity for interested parties to purchase and develop parcels, thereby eliminating blight from City neighborhoods and increasing opportunities available to current and future New Britain residents and businesses.
1) List of City-Owned Properties and application materials can be obtained by contacting the Economic and Policy Department or under Documents in the Municipal Development section of the city web site. Click here to download.
2) Applicants are required to complete and submit all applicable “Required Documentation” and the form “Declaration of Delinquencies.” Failure to do so may result in the application being rejected.
3) An evaluation committee will be established to review complete proposals. The evaluation committee may, in its sole and absolute discretion, reject any and all, or parts of any and all proposals; postpone or cancel at any time this process; change, adjust or modify the anticipated schedule of events. The Committee further reserves the right to waive any minor informalities pertaining to any proposals received. The determination of the criteria and process whereby proposals are evaluated or whether or not an award shall be made as a result of this process shall be in the sole absolute discretion of the City.
Please note that no agreement may be finalized until approved by the Common Council. The successful bidder will be required to execute a purchase and sale agreement.
The properties are being sold “as-is” and the City makes no representations as to any matter affecting or relating to the properties, including but not limited to the physical condition, zoning, adequacy of parking and environmental conditions of the properties. All purchasers of City-owned property will pay full property taxes as determined by the City of New Britain’s Tax Collector’s office.
4) Completed Applications must be submitted to Economic and Policy Department, 27 West Main Street, 2nd floor, Room 204, New Britain, CT 06051
