The future of the 10-acres of Forest Service land at the North Cache Administrative Site in Jackson is still uncertain. Now, says Spokesperson Mary Cernicek, the Forest will advertise for Real Estate Brokerage Services seeking a Request for Quotes over the next 30 days. The successful Broker willtake responsibility to create market interest, locate potential buyers, and consummate a sale to the highest bidder. Cernicek says this is a bit of a departure from the typical way such a sale is handled. She says in the past, conveying public lands within the Forest service, the agency has gone through the general services administration. However, Cernicek says, “In this particular case for the administrative parcel in downtown Jackson, Wyoming, the Forest has elected to go with a real estate broker – someone who will be a little more specialized and pay a little bit more individual attention to the needs of the Bridger Teton. The 10-acre North Cache Administration Site was previously scheduled to be sold directly to the Town of Jackson at an appraised value. The Town of Jackson withdrew from the sale on December 14th after funding for that purchase through the specific purpose excise tax ballot was voted down in November. It is hoped a sale can be awarded by the end of 2013. Proceeds from the sale will be used to remodel the Supervisors Office, warehousing, and conversion of the Jackson District Office into bunk-housing on the remaining 5.3 acres.
