Eaton County Land Bank Authority

On July 17, the Eaton County Treasurer, working in cooperation with the Eaton County Board of Commissioners, created a new Land Bank for Eaton County!  The Land Bank will be an important new economic development tool for returning tax foreclosed and blighted properties to productive, tax-paying status.

A Land bank is a public authority created to efficiently deal with vacant, abandoned, and tax foreclosed property.  Land banks are funded through the management and disposition of tax-foreclosed property.  Most importantly, a Land Bank can work on long term planning that fits within the plans of local community development. 

Beyond people, real property is the most valuable resource we have in our local economy.  Revitalizing blighted, contaminated, or challenged properties benefits local schools, business districts, and local units of government. It promotes sound economic development and increases property values for us all.
