Reclaiming the Neighborhood: Addressing Vacant Homes in Mott Park


Mott Park is a strong neighborhood in Flint that has experienced a large number of mortgage foreclosures and now has numerous empty houses. To address vacant homes, the Genesee Land Bank and the neighborhood association can build community participation and connections; prevent, monitor, and report vacancies; maintain vacant houses; get control of vacant homes; and retrofit and reoccupy homes or remove homes and reinvent vacant lots.
