ABOUT THE LAND BANK

The Ashtabula County Land Bank was created in 2013 in the aftermath of the financial crisis. The land bank’s primary focus has been demolishing blighted structures to help restore property values and safety to Ashtabula’s neighborhoods.   The land bank also serves as a countywide community revitalization organization by performing a variety of activities in addition to demolition:

  • Returning property to productive private ownership

  • Home rehab

  • Brownfield site assessment

  • Land assembly and redevelopment

  • Community planning assistance
