Notice of Availability: Surplus Land Properties

(updated 07/06/2023)

Surplus Property

What is surplus property? 

Surplus property is land owned by any local agency, that is determined to be no longer necessary for the agency's use. Properties listed on this site are former Redevelopment Agency properties that are owned by the City of San Diego. For additional Surplus Land properties, please visit the Department of Real Estate and Airport Management webpage

In 2019, AB 1486 was signed into law, which aimed to connect developers who are interested in building more affordable homes to surplus local public land that is both available and suitable for housing development. This law made several changes to the requirements in the Surplus Land Act (SLA) that local agencies must adhere to when disposing of surplus public land. Beginning Jan. 1, 2021, local agencies are required to send negotiation summaries for each surplus land transaction (property sales and ground leases) to the California Department of Housing & Community Development (HCD) . For more information on SLA, please view the SLA Guide created by HCD.
