New book: Land Banks and Land Banking
From the Center for Community Progress:
As a follow-up to the 2005 seminal land bank text, the new Land Banks and Land Banking authored by Frank S. Alexander, offers public officials and community leaders a step-by-step guide for taking control of problem properties and then leveraging them to spur smart development and meet community needs. This new book provides detailed information gathered from the most robust and current land banks and land banking programs from across the country.
The book is available as a free download or in hardcover.
Land banking tends to be a necessary strategy for revitalization in weak real estate submarkets.
