Restructuring of DNR’s Real Estate Management Section

As a result of legislation approved this year, the Real Estate Management Section of the Division of Natural Resources has been restructured. Beginning July 1, it became the Office of Land and Streams. Joe Scarberry, who had been serving as acting Chief for the Real Estate Management Section, will continue as supervisor for the Office of Land and Streams.
The Public Land Corporation Board and its land functions, which had been part of the Real Estate Management Section, have been moved to the WV Dept. of Administration. The title to the streams, creeks and rivers (as per Senate Bill 582) remains vested with the Division of Natural Resources. All permits, rights-of entries, etc, can be obtained through the DNR Office of Land and Streams using the same process, application, and procedure as before.
The main function of the Office of Land and streams is to supervise and administer DNR’s land acquisition and real estate title documents program. This involves the acquisition, exchange, transfer or disposal of land and improvements for public use.
