2012 Reclaiming Vacant Properties Conference: "Remaking America for the 21st Century"

JUNE 20, 2012 - 8:30 AM to JUNE 22, 2012 - 5:00 PM ET

New Orleans

Problem or asset? Blight or benefit? Explore the strategies and tools that neighborhoods, cities and states are using to turn the challenge of vacant land and buildings into a foundation on which to build the future.
From “rethinking” the competitive 21st century city to hands-on techniques for everything from code enforcement to acquisition of property, the Center for Community Progress’s June conference will reflect the broadest thinking and experience of those engaged in repairing and rebuilding their communities. More than one hundred speakers and presenters will be offering their insights, including two of the nation’s leading social commentators, Clarence Page and Bob Edwards.

Who will be there? Everyone from government and community leaders to funders, lenders and engaged residents; from those building their way out of crime to those building or rebuilding the next American city.  Click here to view the program and to register.
