Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
When you say it is not buildable, is that your opinion or is that something that is coming from the city or county officials?
Are there any neighbors that adjoin your land that might want it?
Have you talked to any local charities like churches or the Salvation Army to see if they would accept it so you could get a tax write off?
Have you approached the Association to see if they would accept it as a gift?
If it were me, I would first talk to a local realtor and sic them on doing some investigating to see if there was any interest in someone buying it. That is what they do for a living and you can get them to spend their time on this with the dangling carrot of a commision.
Then I would check with charities so I could at least get a tax write off for a charitable contribution.
And lastly, i would look into simply gifting it to someone...neighbor, Association, advertise it on Craigslist... there is always someone who is willing to take a parcel of land for free..
As an aside, in addition to being an attorney, I have also been a licensed Realtor for over 14 years...
