Development on Tap: May 26, 2016

You’re invited to Development on Tap: The Indianapolis toolbox for vacant and abandoned property

The month’s Development on Tap features the Center for Community Progress (CCP) who will present their observations and findings on the systemic approaches and barriers to address vacant and abandoned parcels in Indianapolis as well as public and private sector capacity to combat this problem. Earlier this year, Renew Indianapolis, in partnership with the City of Indianapolis and LISC Indianapolis, engaged the Center for Community Progress to evaluate the systems that impact vacancy and abandonment. These systems include:

  • Data
  • Delinquent tax enforcement
  • Housing and building code enforcement
  • Land banking and reuse

After conducting an assessment of the legal and policy framework, their work will be unveiled to the public at this Development on Tap event.

The Center for Community Progress (CCP) is the only national nonprofit specifically dedicated to building a future in which vacant and abandoned properties no longer exist. Launched in January 2010, CCP builds on the work of a number of the nation’s leading vacant property revitalization advocates, including the National Vacant Properties Campaign and the Genesee Institute.

Renew Indianapolis is a non-profit organization with a mission to return chronically vacant and abandoned property to productive use.
