Vacant and Abandoned Buildings

Distressed Property Task Force

Newburgh created its Distressed Property Task Force to develop a step-by-step process for implementing the City’s Vacant Property Revitalization Program, which targets specific areas of vacant and abandoned parcels for reuse or redevelopment through improved code enforcement, creation of the Newburgh Community Land Bank, and a streamlined project review and approval process. Established by Resolution 47-2011 and Resolution 54-2015 (hyperlink to attached PDF), the Task Force joins City officials and staff across several municipal departments with interested businesses, non-profits, and institutions in a forum where they can pool resources, share expertise, and establish collaborative approaches to achieve results that avoid duplicative efforts.
