What is a Land Bank?
Thursday, September 21 · 5:30 – 7:30pm CDT
Through this workshop, attendees will learn how land banks can be used as a tool to stimulate the local economy, and prospective buyers will have an opportunity to learn about the process of purchasing properties from Omaha’s own land bank.
Join us for this presentation to learn how you can partner with the land bank and other resource agencies to transform neglected properties into assets – building sustainable communities.
A Property Transformed:
3102 Seward Street
Having grown up in Prospect Village, Andre Rash saw the transformation of 3102 Seward Street as an opportunity to develop home rehab skills and give back to his community. By partnering with the Land Bank, Andre has succeeded in strengthening community assets, reprioritizing affordable housing, and further supporting Holy Name Housing’s complementary projects in Prospect Village!
A Property Transformed: 3155 Meredith Avenue
This single family home was renovated by a couple with little redevelopment experience but a passion for North Omaha. Through partnerships with the Land Bank, Village Exteriors, Family Housing Advisory Services, and Omaha 100, Carol and Tim were able to transform a distressed property into an opportunity for affordable home ownership!
