The Cuyahoga Land Bank reactivates and repurposes vacant, abandoned, underutilized, and tax-delinquent properties to support our vision that Cuyahoga County’s land is optimally used to make our communities vibrant, prosperous, and sustainable. We do this by acquiring these properties, stabilizing them, and returning them to productive use through in-house renovations, new home construction, sale to private owners, demolition, and preparation for short and long-range economic development. We also foster creative re-use of properties for greenspace, gardening, stormwater management and other innovative and ecological purposes.
Understanding that there is power in partnerships, we work closely with agencies and public officials county-wide, a thriving network of community development corporations, and faith-based and social service organizations to transform our neighborhoods.
Responsible, well-planned redevelopment of these properties spur local housing markets, increase surrounding property values, and improve the quality of life for Cuyahoga County residents.
