The City of Austin wants to return about $200,000 back to the federal government, to free up two East Austin properties for sale.
If the proposal is approved, the money will go back to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development by the end of September. Doing so will fulfill requirements currently preventing the city’s Urban Renewal Agency, which is now in charge of the properties, from taking other actions on them.
The properties include one located at 1120 East 12th Street, and a series of plots on the same street. As KUT News reported previously, critics have accused the board and other agencies of taking too long to turn over the properties.
