SUMMARY:

 

The purposed of this workshop is to improve blighted neighborhoods in our community and provide current best practices in dealing with abandoned buildings and vacant lots.  For example, one of the procedures for vacant buildings is to board them up, however the policy of boarding up buildings creates a neighborhood that is in distress and adds to the blight.
