There are more than 12,000 vacant residential lots in the City of Flint alone.

What is a vacant residential lot? Generally, it is a grassy lot where a house once stood.  We own many of these lots. While these spaces present challenges, they also offer opportunities. Residents who own a house that is adjacent to a vacant Land Bank lot can purchase it for as little as $64 through our Side Lot program. Every year neighbors adopt and lease our vacant lots for mowing and gardening. Neighborhood groups annually maintain more than 1,000 vacant lots through our Clean & Green program.

We are dedicated to providing the community access to our lots for care and re-use.

 

MISSION

The Land Bank's mission is to restore value to the community by acquiring, developing and selling vacant and abandoned properties in cooperation with stakeholders who value responsible land ownership.
