DeKalb County Land Bank Authority
While seeking election in 2018, I heard the community loud and clear. DeKalb residents are tired of blighted properties in their communities. To this end, I am proud to have provided the $200,000 gap funding necessary to revive the DeKalb Land Bank Authority.
The Land Bank is a valuable tool in economic development, because it will manage and dispose of vacant properties, vacant land, and tax-delinquent properties so they can be redeveloped for a better, more productive use – including much needed affordable housing.
The DeKalb Land Bank Authority will work closely with DeKalb Code Enforcement and Keep DeKalb Beautiful to help maximize abated properties for DeKalb residents.
