Vacant Properties: the True Cost to Communities

October 22nd, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

While preparing for a workshop I’ll be doing on 11/3/09 at the College of DuPage, Suburban Law Enforcement Academy, on the relationship between law enforcement and code enforcement, I came across a very informative publication at the website of the National Vacant Properties Campaign entitled Vacant Properties: the True Cost to Communities.  You can download it at http://www.vacantproperties.org/resources/reports.html It contains research on the relationship between crime and vacant and abandoned properties in neighborhoods along with a very good bibliography.

    If you are considering purchasing a home, don’t forget to get a Chinese drywall inspection.
