Tex. Local Gov't Code Section 379C.014
Additional Authorized Use of Land Bank Property


Notwithstanding the other provisions of this chapter, the land bank may acquire and sell to a developer property intended for commercial use.


To qualify to purchase property from the land bank under this section, a developer is not required to be a qualified participating developer but must obtain the municipality’s approval of a development plan for the land bank property and must develop the property in accordance with the approved development plan.


A sale under this section within the four-year period following the date of acquisition of the property by the land bank is for a public purpose and satisfies the requirement under Section 379C.009 (Subsequent Resale by Land Bank)(b) that the property be sold within the four-year period to a qualified participating developer.


The land bank may sell property as provided by this section only after granting any rights of first refusal otherwise required by this chapter, and any completed sale under this section remains subject to the right of reverter provided by Section 379C.009 (Subsequent Resale by Land Bank)(d).
