The concept of land banking began in the 1960s as communities sought solutions to urban disinvestment. The idea is simple…to create a governmental entity that focuses solely on the conversion of vacant, abandoned and tax-delinquent properties into productive use. Land bank authorities achieve this goal by acquiring and overseeing redevelopment of these properties.
