Reclaiming Abandoned Properties Forum

February 10, 2015
10:00 amto2:00 pm

Although abandoned buildings are typically an urban problem, suburban locales have seen dramatic increases due to bank foreclosures. Properties that blight our neighborhoods and business corridors are a critical barrier to economic and community redevelopment, as they lower surrounding property values and scare away residents, developers and business owners.

This program will cover the various tools and techniques local officials currently have at their disposal available through the Abandoned Properties Act to address these problem properties, including strategic code enforcement , vacant property registry and inspection programs, and taking title to abandoned properties.

Hear from the experts on:

  • Developing a Vacant Property Strategy
  • Tools for Reclaiming Vacant Properties in NJ
  • Approaches on the Ground
  • Municipal Case Studies that are successful!
