How a Land Bank Works
Land banks are an efficient and effective system to eliminate blight. They identify, acquire, and maintain problem properties and then transfer them back to responsible ownership and productive use in accordance with local zoning and neighborhood goals and priorities.
Board & Staff
Our Board is comprised of local economic development and urban planning professionals, and neighborhood and community stakeholders. Our staff are all Hartford residents and community leaders, enthusiastic about their work as catalysts for vacant properties, homeownership advocacy, and workforce development.
The Board of the Hartford Land Bank meets monthly. Meetings are open to the public.
