New tools to address zombie homes

May 31 | Webinar
10 – 11 am

Abandoned homes (also known as zombie homes) have a number of negative implications for cities including crime, public safety issues, lower property values, lack of community cohesion, and lower tax revenue – to name a few. AWC has been working to enhance the tools and processes available to cities to address foreclosed or abandoned nuisance homes with and without bank cooperation. This webinar explores existing and new options for cities to address the impacts these properties have on their communities.

  • Learn about the new zombie home law (HB 2057/SB 5797) taking effect this June
  • Discover what tools are available to help cities address abandoned or foreclosed homes
  • Hear how the bill allows cities to better recover costs for conducting nuisance abatements on homes that are mid-foreclosure

For more information, read AWC’s Cityvision article on abandoned and foreclosed homes.

This webinar is for code enforcement officers, city managers/administrators and city attorneys.
