This session will cover the details of Act 61 of 2020 which went into effect on September 14, 2020 and gives municipalities another tool to address blight. The new law provides for a declining ten-year exemption on improvements specifically for owners who repair or redevelop blighted properties in designated areas. As a condition the owner must agree to correct all code violations, pay all delinquent taxes, and increase the value of the property by at least 25%. Failure to maintain the property after the tax exemption can result in the recapture of the real estate taxes exempted.

This webinar is specifically for small towns and rural communities that don’t have the financial or staff resources of a larger community to deal with blighted properties. Ideas for “lite” versions of property maintenance, nuisance, and dangerous structures codes will be shared. Less staff intensive approaches such as ticketing for code violations will also be discussed. Chris Gulotta, of The Gulotta Group will be the presenter.

Using the Tool of Conservatorship to Deal with Blighted Properties
The tool of conservatorship was adopted by the legislature in 2008 to help communities deal with blighted properties. Conservatorship allows municipalities and other entities to be appointed by the local court to make repairs or tear down vacant blighted properties. Case studies of communities that have effectively utilized conservatorship will be discussed. Chris Gulotta, of The Gulotta Group will be the presenter.
