The Land Bank is a county authority and a strategic economic tool that supports growth and investment in our community. Land Banks were created to return tax reverted property to productive use as rapidly as possible. These reverted properties commonly come through the tax foreclosure process. A Land Bank may concentrate its efforts on an entire neighborhood that needs reinvestment. The Land Bank will buy, renovate and resell multiple properties in a designated area with a goal of owner-occupancy.
