Join the City of San Marcos Workforce Housing Task Force for a Public Meeting on Land Banks with Chairman of the Houston Land Bank Nick Hall on Thursday, Aug. 29 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the San Marcos Activity Center, 501 E. Hopkins.
Land banks are a potential tool identified as a part of the Strategic Housing Action Plan to address housing challenges in San Marcos. A land bank allows for the transition of vacant or underutilized properties into housing for the community.
Hall is an expert in land banks and will be presenting and answering questions about this housing affordability tool. Hall’s history includes devising a strategy to transform Houston’s Land Assemblage Redevelopment Authority into the Houston Land Bank, making it a city-wide authority in community revitalization with a mission to strategically acquire and develop vacant, abandoned, and storm-damaged properties into productive use to catalyze transformative community development.
