The Erie County Land Bank, formed in 2018 under a special ordinance, was created to acquire, hold, and transfer interest in real property throughout Erie County for the following purposes:
To deter the spread of blight
To promote redevelopment and reuse of vacant, abandoned, and tax-delinquent properties
To support targeted efforts to stabilize neighborhoods
To stimulate residential, commercial and industrial development
The Erie County Land Bank is working in alignment with the goals and priorities of our local government partners and community stakeholders. Together, we work to stabilize and enhance our unique communities within Erie County.
