To the fullest extent practicable, government housing which is no longer needed for the purposes of 12.0501 shall be declared surplus by the Governor. Upon such declaration, a determination shall also be made by the Governor as to whether the surplus housing can continue to be maintained reasonably at acceptable standards for occupancy. Units that cannot be so maintained shall be demolished. Units that can be so maintained shall be transferred to housing or nonhousing use by federal agencies or to non-housing use by the government, and if not so transferred shall be disposed of by sale. Units suitable only for housing purposes and located in nonresidential areas under zoning laws shall be removed or demolished unless the Governor and Zoning Board approve further use for housing.History: 1978, PL 15-67.
