Governor Cuomo Signs Land Bank Legislation

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo signed a law allowing municipalities to create land banks to convert vacant properties into uses that support community revitalization.

Land banks are local entities authorized to take control and redevelop vacant or abandoned properties to where they can better serve the public interest. With many Upstate municipalities suffering from an overabundance in vacant and abandoned properties due to population losses, land banks will give cities and counties a new tool to rebuild communities and foster local economic development.
