The mission of the Birmingham Land Bank Authority is to serve the citizens of Birmingham by working collaboratively and transparently with community stakeholders and the City of Birmingham to steward vacant, abandoned, and tax-delinquent properties and dispose of them to the best use as defined by the needs of the community to reduce community blight, stabilize neighborhoods, facilitate community civic, and commercial redevelopment, and to increase community and overall City of Birmingham property values while returning such properties back to the tax rolls.
