The plan is to create a new homeless encampment on that land.
Rochester City Council voted to transfer a plot of land on Industrial Street into a non-profit for the homeless.
The city agreed to sell the nearly half-acre vacant lot for one dollar to the Rochester Land Bank Corporation.
The plan is to create a new homeless encampment on that land. But another landowner on Industrial Street says he had no idea the city was considering selling the land.
"It's a unsafe environment on my street," Michael Tandoi, Industrial Street landowner said."I own 60-percent of the street and I haven't been invited to any meetings. I've been completely blinded by the whole entire thing."
People were kicked out of the South Avenue encampment this spring because the land is owned by Spectrum and the Bivona Child Advocacy Center.
The city says it will continue to provide support to homeless persons on site.
