Full description:
Our city has a serious vacant property challenge, one that affects all of us on personal, local, and regional levels. The reasons for vacancies are complex and solutions require a collaborative approach among local government, neighborhood leaders, nonprofit organizations, and other stakeholders.

This workshop will introduce two new resources to help us address this challenge. Participants will get a first look at a newly written guide intended to help local government officials, neighborhood associations, community-based nonprofits, residents, business owners, and other stakeholders better understand how to work together to use existing tools to address the vacancy challenge. In addition, workshop participants will learn about a new initiative housed at Legal Services of Eastern Missouri that will provide legal help to neighborhoods combating vacancy and connect volunteer lawyers with neighborhoods in need.
