York County Land Bank Authority

The Role of YCLBA

A Land Bank is another tool in the redevelopment toolbox for York County’s 72 municipalities. This new Authority was created to help facilitate the conversion of vacant and/or tax delinquent properties and to bring them back into productive use and to bring them back onto the tax rolls. Each property or project provides a different economic development opportunity and will have a strategically planned outcome, whether housing, green space, or parking, the outcome will be its own particular highest and best use.

The York County Land Bank Authority was created through a partnership of the Redevelopment Authority of the County of York, the Redevelopment Authority of the City of York, and the York County Economic Alliance. While this is a tool for the entire County, it is particularly significant for smaller municipalities that lack the funding or staff support to deal with problem properties. For more information please contact Kim Hogeman, 717.771.4583.
