Connecting the systemic dots of blight in your community


No doubt, you're aware of the negative impacts that blight can have on communities. These eyesores are causing government officials and economic developers to create opportunities for redevelopment and rehabilitation projects. But what about your community's? Do you know where and how to address abandoned properties? This upcoming webinar is for the economic developer who is facing a blight issue, is getting pressure to do something about it, or soon may be.

Neighborhood decay has been commonly linked to depreciating property values, higher crime rates, and increased unemployment levels.
