Gov. Mike Dunleavy asked department heads in February to investigate options for selling some State-owned properties to help the State save money. In June, a final list was compiled of possible properties that may be surplused, if the State chooses to divest.

The report, finished in June, identifies over $76 million in buildings, and 193,609 square feet. The buildings include Trooper housing in Northway, an Armory building in Fort Yukon, and Telephone Hill in Juneau, a pocket neighborhood adjacent to the State Office Building.

The Telephone Hill property is one that may have a lot of potential value, but no value is listed in the description, although there is a caution that lawsuits might be filed if the State tries to sell it.
