Ridgetop Land Exchange (formerly Bucklin Hill Land Exchange)

Proposed Ridgetop Land Exchange (Exchange 86-099534) - (Formerly Bucklin Hill Land Exchange)

DNR proposes to exchange one 27-acre parcel of Common School Trust land in Kitsap County for a 1.5-acre parcel of privately owned commercial property in Snohomish County. The Snohomish County parcel is leased to Bartell Drug in Arlington, and would provide income for the Common School trust, which funds K-12 school construction across the state. DNR would dispose of a property in Sliverdale that is zoned for resedential use and is currently not producing revenue for the Common School trust.
Due to public request, the exchage name has been changed from "Bucklin Hill" to "Ridgetop" to more accurately reflect the location of the State's property.
Properties proposed for exchange are located in Kitsap and Snohomish Counties.
