The mission of the Land Bank is to help stabilize and/or increase property values, strengthen communities and help to enhance the overall quality of life for Lake County residents. We accomplish this goal by revitalizing abandoned and/or blighted residential or commercial structures, either by acquisition for rehabilitation and/or demolition. Further collaborative efforts keep an eye towards economic development, creating green space when appropriate, and when possible – making permanent neighborhood improvements.
