Do you have a City-owned vacant lot next to your home?

If so, you may be able to buy the lot and combine it with your property for added yard space. 
Contact us to see if a lot is available.

The sale of a vacant lot to an adjoining owner is possible if:

• Adjoining owner is an owner-occupant of their home

• Adjoining owner is in good standing with the City of Milwaukee, current on property taxes and has no outstanding code violations

• Vacant lot has no current development proposals or lacks future development potential

• Local Alderperson approves the sale

If a City-owned vacant lot is bordered by two qualified buyers, the City may divide the lot resulting in equal sized lots for each adjoining owner.
