NY Land Bank Association's 2016 Conference

The NY Land Bank Association hosted its annual conference in Syracuse, NY last week. Staff and board members from 14 of the state's 18 land banks and from one community applying to create a land bank came together for two days of education and training sessions and to share information with one another. We were briefly joined by Senator David Valeksy (near the right in this photo), one of the sponsors of the NY Land Bank Act signed into law in 2011 and sponsor of numerous amendments to the Act passed in recent years.
