Register Now: Land Bank 101 – Everything You Need to Know

What’s a land bank? Can it help eliminate blight and revitalize my community? Are they allowed in Maryland? How do I get one started?

These questions and more will be answered in the Land Bank 101 Workshop hosted by the Community Development Network (CDN) in partnership with Delegate Marvin E. Holmes, Jr., Prince George’s County Department of Housing and Community Development, and the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond-Baltimore Branch. The workshop will be held Thursday, September 28, 2017 at the Prince George’s County Sports and Learning Complex (8001 Sheriff Road Hyattsville, MD 20785). 

This workshop will have all you need to know about what Land Banks do, how Maryland’s law works, and how jurisdictions can implement the new law.

The national experts in this field, the Center for Community Progress, will run the workshop and answer your questions.
