About the Land Bank 

The purpose of the land bank is to acquire, hold and dispose of real property that is vacant, abandoned or underutilized for purposes of returning those properties to productive use. This goal will be met through judicious use of land bank powers enumerated in Section 1600 of the NY Not-for-profit Corporation Law (known as the “Land Bank Act”) to specifically facilitate, manage, and implement City of Rochester designated community development projects or redevelopment plans.

The focus of the land bank is systematic treatment of vacant property consistent with the development strategies and policies created by City government and community members. The land bank will acquire and dispose of real property when a disposition strategy has been identified within the context of City designated community development projects or redevelopment plans. The disposition strategy may include holding the property in the land bank for a period of time, demolition, sale to a developer or other strategies.
