Restoring Properties, Rebuilding Communities: Transforming Vacant Properties in Today's America 

By the Center for Community Progress

Until now, vacant properties have been an almost exclusively local concern, dealt with by city inspectors and tax officials on a building-by-building basis. The report is titled Restoring Properties, Rebuilding Communities: Transforming Vacant Properties in Today’s America, and offers a systemic look at the problem and evaluates actions that can be taken by federal, state and local governments, as well as community organizations, private foundations and real estate developers to stem the tide of increasing vacancy rates and meet the challenges presented by already vacant properties.
