Vacant Lot Initiative

District 2

To promote investment and improvements to vacant residential properties within City Council District 2, the City Council approved funding for the Vacant Lot Initiative program. Community revitalization is a crucial goal for the City. The Vacant Lot Initiative program may be utilized by residential property owners when the City imposes fines for non-compliance violations and Bexar County delinquent taxes on the vacant residential lot(s). The program will assist with eliminating liens to aid with the reinvestment of affordable single-family housing. While at the same time do away with vacant lots that have become threats to the public’s health and safety. The program is for the public purpose of facilitating substantial investment for quality residential affordable housing opportunities within City Council District 2.
