Binghamton To Sell Dozens Of Properties

Broome County Real Property Tax Services

Forty city-owned lots are going to auction as Binghamton officials work to get more property back on the tax rolls.

Most of the lots set to be auctioned next week are vacant. Many are in residential neighborhoods.

Some, such as the parcel shown above at what’s known as 2 Shear Street, are paved lots. The Shear Street lot is located off State Street.

Binghamton planning department personnel evaluated more than 230 city-owned parcels. The findings of the inventory were presented to city council members in February.

Some of the properties included in the review were identified as serving a public purpose. A couple of dozen wooded or vacant lots will be turned into permanent open space for flood mitigation.

The remaining lots will be retained by the city for possible redevelopment or sent to the April 13 Broome County auction.

The city-owned properties to be sold at auction can be found here.

The April 13 auction will be held at the Holiday Inn on Hawley Street in downtown Binghamton.
