Texas Government Code

Sec. § 2267.056
Dedication and Conveyance of Public Property


After obtaining any appraisal of the property interest that is required under other law in connection with the conveyance, a governmental entity may dedicate any property interest, including land, improvements, and tangible personal property, for public use in a qualifying project if the governmental entity finds that the dedication will serve the public purpose of this chapter by minimizing the cost of a qualifying project to the governmental entity or reducing the delivery time of a qualifying project.


In connection with a dedication under Subsection (a), a governmental entity may convey any property interest, including a license, franchise, easement, or another right or interest the governmental entity considers appropriate, subject to the conditions imposed by general law governing such conveyance and subject to the rights of an existing utility under a license, franchise, easement, or other right under law, to the contracting person for the consideration determined by the governmental entity. The consideration may include the agreement of the contracting person to develop or operate the qualifying project.
