  100.410.  Property in a project, how disposed of. — Property in a project may be disposed of as follows:

  (1)  An authority may sell, lease, exchange or otherwise transfer real property, including land and improvements as provided for in the project, or any interest therein in a project area to any developer for industrial and commercial or related uses or for public use in accordance with the plan, subject to such covenants, conditions and restrictions as may be deemed to be in the public interest or to carry out the purposes of this law; provided that such sale, lease, exchange or other transfer, and any agreement relating thereto, may be made only after, or subject to, the approval of the plan by the governing body of the city.  Such real property shall be sold, leased or transferred at its fair value for uses in accordance with the plan notwithstanding such value may be less than the cost of such property to the authority.  In determining the fair value of real property for uses in accordance with the plan, an authority shall take into account and give consideration to the uses and purposes required by such plan; the restrictions upon, and the covenants, conditions and obligations assumed by, the developer of such property; the objectives of the plan for the prevention of the recurrence of blighted, insanitary or undeveloped industrial areas; and such other matters as the authority shall specify as being appropriate.  In fixing rentals and selling prices, an authority shall give consideration to appraisals of the property for such uses made by experts employed by the authority.

  (2)  An authority shall, by public notice published at least two times in a newspaper having a general circulation in its area of operation, prior to the consideration of any industrial development contract proposal, invite proposals from, and make available all pertinent information to, private industrial developers or any persons interested in undertaking the development of an area, or any part thereof, which the governing body has declared to be in need of industrial development.  Such notice shall identify the area and shall state that such further information as is available may be obtained at the office of the authority.  The authority shall consider all proposals and the financial and legal ability of the prospective developers to carry out their proposals and may negotiate with any industrial developer for proposals for the purchase or lease of any real property in the industrial clearance project area.  The authority may accept such industrial development contract proposal as it deems to be in the public interest and in furtherance of the purposes of this law; provided that the authority has, not less than thirty days prior thereto, notified the governing body in writing of its intention to accept such industrial development contract proposal.  Thereafter, the authority may execute such industrial development contract in accordance with the provisions of subdivision (1) of this section and deliver deeds, leases and other instruments and take all steps necessary to effectuate such industrial development contract.  In its discretion, the authority may, with regard to the foregoing provisions of this subdivision, dispose of real property in a project area to private developers for redevelopment under such reasonable competitive bidding procedures as it shall prescribe, subject to the provisions of subdivision (1).

  (3)  In carrying out a project, an authority may:

  (a)  Convey to the city such real property as, in accordance with the development plan, is to be laid out into streets, alleys and public ways, this power being additional to and not limiting any and all other powers of conveyance of property to cities expressed herein generally or otherwise;

  (b)  Grant servitudes, easements and rights-of-way for public utilities, sewers, streets and other similar facilities, in accordance with the plan; and

  (c)  Convey to the municipality, county or other appropriate public body such real property as, in accordance with the plan, is to be used for parks, schools, public buildings, facilities or other public purposes.

  (4)  An authority may temporarily operate and maintain real property in a project area pending the disposition of the property for industrial development, without regard to the provisions of subdivisions (1) and (2) above, for such uses and purposes as may be deemed desirable even though not in conformity with the plan.
