The impact of blight on our communities is far-reaching, but what can you do about it? Lots! Blight is most evident to local governments by a loss of tax revenue and declining property values. Blighted neighborhoods spawn illegal activities, which are costly to police and contribute to other serious social ills, such as homelessness, and unemployment. Left unaddressed, these issues can quickly push cities over the edge into decline. Economic developers know the stakes are high, and should be invested in being part of the solution to remediate blight in their communities. GIS offers solutions to help local governments return distressed properties to productivity, and address costly issues of social inequity. Hear how economic developers can join in the collective fight to reverse the devastation of urban decay and boost community attractiveness for residents, businesses, and prospective investors. If you are feeling the pressure to help solve the blight challenge in your community, this webinar can help.
