Ohio Takes Inventory of State-Owned Real Estate
All across Ohio, there may be state-owned properties which are not put to any use and may even be unsightly eyesores. Wednesday, Ohio Treasurer Richard Cordray plans to release a new inventory of state-owned real estate totaling more than 50,000properties in Ohio’s 88 counties.
He is making the announcement in the Cleveland suburb Parma. Cuyahoga County has nearly eight thousand state properties on the new list.
Cordray favors making some state parcels available to private development or public use. Cordray is a Democrat who was elected in November.
