2021 Policy Priorities

The effect of vacant, abandoned, and blighted properties drive down the value and markets of housing and neighborhoods in our city. This work group convenes community leaders and advocates across Memphis to develop creative strategies on how to address vacant land and green spaces in our communities. This year the group will focus on: 

  • Advocating for the access & inclusion of community-based organizations in the design and delivery of creative programs and funding that address nuisance properties and the activation and care of vacant land.
  • Developing formalized processes and resources that guide community development corporations through existing tools that address vacant properties.
