Auction Could Put Trust Land In Lake Havasu On Development Path


A vacant parcel of state trust land across the street from Lake Havasu State Park is expected to be sold during a February 12 auction.

A sale of the publicly owned property could put it on a path for development in the western Arizona community along the Colorado River.

The Today's News-Herald reports the 12-acre property is now zoned in an agriculture/preservation district.

However, a new owner could ask the city to rezone the property to allow commercial development.

Profits from the auction would go to trust land beneficiaries and public education.
