Topic - Landbanking

This page summarizes KnowledgePlex content about Landbanking.

Landbanking is a technique whereby a city, county, or nonprofit organization - in anticipation of future development - acquires vacant land, underutilized sites, or properties with the potential for reuse or rehabilitation. A local government may be able to buy land from other public agencies at a lower cost or before it comes on the market because state law gives local governments, as well as nonprofits, priority in purchasing surplus land.
