Who we are
Often referred to as the “Land Bank,” we are a Community Development Corporation incorporated in the State of Ohio as a not-for-profit. Additionally, the Internal Revenue Service has designated the Lake County Land Reutilization Corporation as a 501(c)(3) organization enabling individuals and other legal entities to donate land and/or make contributions that may receive charitable tax treatment. Also of note is the fact that while statutorily Ohio requires that five of the nine member Board of Directors be an elected officials or community designees, we are not a Lake County Government Agency.
The mission of the Land Bank is to help stabilize and/or increase property values, strengthen communities and help to enhance the overall quality of life for Lake County residents. We accomplish this goal by revitalizing abandoned and/or blighted residential or commercial structures, either by acquisition for rehabilitation and/or demolition. Further collaborative efforts keep an eye towards economic development, creating green space when appropriate, and when possible – making permanent neighborhood improvements.
