County moves a step closer to selling surplus Metro lot to Auburn
October 15, 2012 · 4:02 PM
The Committee of the Whole unanimously passed a proposed ordinance, approving the sale of a surplus portion of the Auburn Park–and–Ride parking lot to the City of Auburn.
The action will be voted on next Monday in front of the King County Council.
King County Councilmember Pete von Reichbauer is the prime sponsor of the ordinance.
The proposal would sell a surplus Metro lot to the Auburn and eventually Orion Industries, which did not have enough land available in Federal Way and was looking to expand its site selection outside South King County.
Proceeds of the sale will principally go to Metro Transit.
