Land banks are a valuable tool to stabilize neighborhoods and encourage renewal – as communities across the nation are struggling with foreclosures and vacant properties.
Join the nation’s leading land bank advocates, practitioners and public policy experts to learn how communities are using land banks to empower their neighborhoods, gain control of vacant properties and repurpose land to build stronger, more vibrant towns and cities. Hear about challenges and success stories in the field, and share creative strategies to repurpose land for commercial, residential and recreational use.
