JACKSON — After years of on-and-off talk about a sale, the U.S. Forest Service has chosen Sotheby's International Realty to market a big part of the agency's land in Jackson.
The Forest Service wants to unload the 10-acre parcel to raise cash for other projects.
Sotheby's associate broker Jay Kornoff said that the Forest Service regional office in Ogden, Utah, is expected to put a price on the land within a few days.
Appraisals in recent years were in the $10 million to $11 million range.
The town of Jackson failed to win voter approval in November for $13.5 million to buy the land for unspecified public use.
The Forest Service will retain 5.3 acres in Jackson, where its Bridger-Teton National Forest headquarters is located.
