In what has become an ongoing series here on the UB REAL Blog, we wanted to issue another update on the now year old Cuyahoga County Land Reutilization Corporation, better known as the land bank. Over the past six months, the Cuyahoga County Land Bank has obtained more properties and received millions in funding from the federal government.
A South Euclid lot donated to the Cuyahoga County Land Bank is soon to become one of the program’s community gardens. As of January 13, 2010, the property is the first of its kind to complete both the acquisition and disposition processes. The 50×108 lot, located at 3915 Warrendale Road, was given a market value of $22,800.
