The Cuyahoga County Land Bank

The new newly incorporated Cuyahoga County Land Reutilization Corporation (Land Bank) holds great promise for helping cities reutilize distressed properties, rebuild neighborhoods and shore up declining tax bases. As a partner with cities and other units of government, lenders and individual property owners, the Land Bank has the potential to restore housing markets, rebuild communities and change development patterns on a regional scale, targeting future growth and development to core areas.

Join us as we take an in-depth look at the Land Bank and the roles it can play as a partner in rebuilding our communities. Featuring Jim Rokakis, Cuyahoga County Treasurer and Gus Frangos, President, Cuyahoga County Land Reutilization Corporation.
