Pizza with Planners - Tipping Point Neighborhoods: Targeting Blight Investments

With limited resources to address vacant and abandoned houses, how can CDCs make more strategic investments in fighting blight? Frayser Community Development Corporation has tested a new approach - targeting lawsuits and rehabs in a smaller geography with the hope that proximity and a multiplier effect will stabilize and even raise surrounding property values. Executive Director Steve Lockwood will present on Frayser CDC’s approach, their results, and next steps to finding the next ‘yellow square’ for targeted anti-blight investments.
