You have nothing to lose and can gain a Lot for only $1


The City's $1 Large Lot program is set to reopen to deeded property owner applicants.

DPD will reopen Mayor Emanuel's Large Lots land sale program Monday, Dec. 3, 2018 with approximately 4,000 vacant, City-owned lots on the South, Southwest and West sides available for $1 each.
The six-week application period is the eighth since the program debuted in 2014. Since then, nearly 2,000 lots have been purchased for a buck by local property owners. 

If you're a property owner in Auburn Gresham and are interested in owning a vacant lot on your block, please visit to find available lots and submit your application. We are working to ensure residents take advantage of the buying $1 lots in the MMRP area, where there may be grants to assist with the home purchased and ideas for your large lots.

Don't wait you have a lot to gain!
