Greater Ohio speaks at the upcoming "Reclaiming Vacant Properties Conference"

On Monday, June 1st from 2:30-5:30, Greater Ohio's Lavea Brachman will join other experts on the Building a State Vacant Properties Campaign training session. The session is part of the Reclaiming Vacant Properties Campaign in Louisville, KY from June 1st-3rd. Although online registration is now closed, on-site registration is available.

With the rising number of foreclosures, blight from vacant properties confronts communities across the country and severely threatens neighborhood stability. Cities of all shapes and sizes are searching for innovative, cost effective strategies to abate these public nuisances and transform vacant properties into catalysts for revitalization. As the new Obama Administration gets under way, what better time to join your vacant property colleagues to share successful initiatives taking place across the country and discuss the new opportunities to change the federal and state policies that affect our cities and towns.

Reclaiming Vacant Properties: Building Leadership to Restore Communities is the only national conference focusing on building the knowledge, leadership, and momentum to reclaim vacant and abandoned properties for thriving neighborhoods.
