Office of Real Estate

The Office of Real Estate engages in a wide range of real estate related activities. We are responsible for acquisition of sites for new facilities such as fire stations, libraries and recreation centers. In addition, we dispose of property that has been declared surplus to County needs. This includes the disposition of closed schools by lease. We also have an extensive leasing program; leasing and administering over 1.03 million feet of space in over 60 locations at a budgeted annual cost of $22.6 million dollars to fulfill County space needs in FY16. The County's needs are constantly changing. Our current focus is on consolidating out of leased facilities into owned facilities, thus decreasing our lease expenses.
