Do you want to take ownership of and maintain a vacant lot on your block?
The Office of Community Development hopes that you and your family are healthy and staying safe during these uncertain times. We look forward to a time when we can interact face-to-face with you again, but in the meantime, please know that we are available via phone and email. Click here for some activities you can do while you’re safely at home to learn about vacant properties and the Landbank.
Currently, the Landbank owns roughly 500 properties and strives to put them back into productive use to improve our neighborhoods by increasing property values, stimulate the tax base, and reducing crime rates.
What is the Landbank? The Landbank Authority is a cooperative effort by the major taxing authorities in Louisville Metro (city of Louisville, commonwealth of Kentucky and Jefferson County Public Schools). Its mission is to put vacant and abandoned properties back into productive use through concerned residents like you.
To learn more about our programs and to purchase a Landbank Authority-owned vacant property, click on the link below for either lots or structures.
Curious how to figure out who owns a property and whether is it available for purchase through the city? Watch this video tutorial.
