Blight Busters

The  SRCOG creates a space where individuals and local officials can see how others throughout the region are actively working to “bust” blight from their communities. Since the sessions  began in March 2012, a variety of topics have been covered including: land banking, brownfield redevelopment, storm water mitigation, delinquent tax collection & sheriff sale, urban farming, affordable housing and business district revitalization. The core group of 20 – 30 stakeholders attending monthly come to hear the latest strategies available on revitalizing and preserving neighborhoods and afterwards have the opportunity to network and converse with the presenter and others in attendance.
