The Lucas County Land Bank’s mission is to improve the quality of neighborhoods, increase land values, create diverse housing opportunities, and return properties to the tax rolls. The Land Bank does this by promoting real estate redevelopment and eliminating blight in vacant, abandoned and underutilized properties. In carrying out its mission, the Land Bank routinely demolishes vacant and abandoned nuisance properties with the goal of stabilizing and increasing neighborhood property values and eliminating hazards to public health and safety.
If you wish to bring a vacant and abandoned residential property to the Land Bank’s attention, or if you are interested in acquiring a property as a side lot after the structure has been demolished under our program, please complete and submit the Land Bank’s Vacant Land Transfer Application
by mail, fax or e-mail. For more information on the Land Bank’s demolition program, please do not hesitate to contact the Land Bank at 419-213-4293 or by e-mail at
