Sean Kilkenny And Barbara Merlie Author An Article On The Pennsylvania Land Bank Law

The article is entitled "Local Option, Potential Opportunity — The Pennsylvania Land Bank Law: Can it help your municipality?"

Since the economic downturn of 2008, many municipalities have been ravaged by the effects of abandoned homes and blighted properties. The article discusses how municipalities can battle these vacancies with the use of a land bank.

A land bank is a locally created and locally controlled entity with the single purpose of amassing, inventorying, managing and marketing blighted, abandoned and tax foreclosed properties that are not otherwise reclaimed or redeveloped.
