But the land's owners, Richard and Karen Lee, say it's not about the money.
"We have asked the city if they could provide an area for us (that's) compatible," said Richard Lee.
Karen Lee said, "They said they won't exchange because they're not in the real estate business."
The Lee's say the city originally offered them $500,000 for the land. Then Karen Lee said ,"They were going to offer us a dollar and I said, 'A dollar? That's ridiculous.'"
Grabauskas said the Lee's land was found to be contaminated and that the clean up could cost more than the property's value, which is the reason for the $1 offer.
The City Council has 45 days to review the action.
If it does not object, the HART board may proceed to court, following public notice and testimony.
