Land Bank Lots from Fort Riley Overbuilding to Be Sold

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Junction City is looking for new owners for lots it was forced to take back after a surge of troops at Fort Riley never materialized. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that the first 25 of the city's more than 900 lots are for sale. Junction City planning and zoning director David Yearout says sealed bids are due by 5 pm Thursday. On Tuesday, the city will decide whether to accept the bids, which must be for at least $5,000. The lots in the land bank have utilities and streets leading to them, a legacy of the building spree following optimistic projections about the future of Fort Riley. City manager Allan Dinckel says that if it goes well, more properties will go on sale in the future.
