Each year, the Ohio Land Bank Conference provides timely and essential information for land bank board members and staff, county and municipal officials, community and economic development officers, community development corporations and all those interested in repurposing vacant and abandoned properties and revitalizing our neighborhoods.

The Eighth Annual Ohio Land Bank Conference was no exception. A special Land Bank 101 session took place on October 21 at the Fawcett Center at The Ohio State University. The conference was held October 22 - 23 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center. The conference featured 30 different sessions, including panel discussions, roundtables, and plenary sessions featuring Western Reserve Land Conservancy's conservation staff members and city planner, advocate and writer, Allan Mallach.

We look forward to your participation in the ninth annual conference next year. We’d also like to extend a special thanks to all our sponsors!
