Land Security for Community Open Spaces.

As discussed in a previous post, CLC attorneys and interns have been cross-checking Baltimore City’s Adopted Lot list against the list of properties that are currently for sale under the City’s Vacants to Value program. In the spring, CLC found over 150 adopted lots that the city was actively trying to sell through VtoV. These lots for sale included established community managed open space; for example, several lots adopted by Boone Street Farm were on the VtoV list. As of our most recent check, there are currently 126 adopted lots on the VtoV list; CLC will be contacting the adopters of those lots to ensure that they understand the properties’ Vacants to Value status.

For more information on how to make sure your adopted lot doesn’t end up on the Vacants to Value list of properties for sale, check out this workshop led by Baltimore Green Space, called Land Security for Community Open Spaces.
