Terry Schwarz on Panel Discussion for HUD Quarterly Meeting

CUDC Director, Terry Schwarz, will be part of a panel discussion at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in Washington, DC, Thursdays, April 10th.

This quarterly meeting will examine Vacant and Abandoned Properties: Turning Liabilities Into Assets. Building on the current issue of Evidence Matters this update will consider vacancy from various perspectives and examine the work that communities are doing to limit or reverse its negative effects. The panel will discuss land banks that assemble parcels of land and maintain vacant properties until the land can be returned to productive use. In addition short-term uses such as stores, parks, and art projects that bring vibrancy to otherwise blighted spaces will be discussed.

If you are in the DC area and would like to attend please register here. The event will also be webcast live, more information available here.
