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.
