Cook County land bank approved
Register for Feb. 7 roundtable
The Cook County Board of Commissioners approved the creation of a new Land Bank Authority on Jan. 16. MPC President MarySue Barrett chaired the Cook County Land Bank Advisory Committee, and commended the County for its leadership. “Cook County has taken a thoughtful approach to helping the region address the vast and growing number of vacant and abandoned properties. The proposed Land Bank Authority is an innovative, yet pragmatic strategy that will remove redevelopment barriers, making it easier for municipalities and the private market to move ahead with development plans and jumpstart the economy.”
