The Kingston City Land Bank is a new tool to preserve affordability and facilitate the return of distressed properties to productive use in the City of Kingston.
We are a not-for-profit that is a separate entity from the City of Kingston.
We are changing the way the City addresses vacant houses & properties.
We believe everyone has the right to a safe, affordable, and high-quality place to live. Therefore, the mission of the Kingston City Land Bank is to foster an equitable community where vacant or distressed properties are transformed into community assets that improve the quality of life for Kingston residents, stabilize and enhance neighborhoods, and create new pathways for social and economic development.
