Farm Fields Lease
Notice for Bids
Farm Fields Lease
St. Charles County Parks & Recreation Department is requesting bids from parties interested in leasing undeveloped park property for farming purposes. There is one site that will be available in this bidding cycle. The bid package is available for download from the County's website at http://www.sccmo.org/Bids.aspx. The Lease will be only for the fields identified in the bid package. Interested parties should submit a set price for the use of the site being bid on. Submissions should be an annual set dollar amount that is based on the use of the land available for farming and not based on amount of crops produced. The bid package includes a "Land Lease - Bid Submittal Form" and a draft copy of the agreement that cites the expectations of the County, what is allowed under the lease, and a map of the site.
Leases will be for one year with an option for up to four (4) one-year extensions. Acreage amount listed on the attached map is an approximation. Also, please note the field to the extreme east labeled as 6.68 acres is difficult to reach with farming equipment. Additionally, among other reasons, the St. Charles County Parks & Recreation Department may not exercise the option years if the site becomes slated for park development. There is a strong chance that some or all these fields will be used for park development sometime before the final optional extension would be completed. The annual lease payment will be due in full to the County upon lease agreement signing and in January of each option year the lease is in effect.
St. Charles County reserves the right to refuse any or all bids received.
Sites available for bids include (acreage listed are approximations):
• Park at New Melle Lakes - access to fields off Foristell Road and S. Pointe Prairie Road. Approximately 52 acres.
