Far too many communities across the country are plagued with vacant, underutilized and neglected real estate. At Downtown Redevelopment Services, we understand that vacancy is a hindrance to all revitalization efforts and has a tremendous negative impact on communities. We have developed the following tool box to assist cities and towns in their efforts to combat nuisance property.

  • Vacant/Nuisance Property Legislation
  • Developer Due Dilligence Documents 
  • Public Engagement and Support
  • Political Support Coordination
  • Code Enforcement Strategies 


We have worked with dozens of communities that have fought back against vacant property and have experienced meaningful change. When a community takes a strategic approach to combating nuisance property, results occur quickly. The reduction in vacant and nuisance property leads to:

  • Increased investment
  • Increased property values
  • Increased tourism
  • Increased civic pride 
  • Increased foot traffic
  • Enhanced sense of community 
  • Reduced blight 
  • Reduced crime
