PlanPhilly to Hold Land Bank Forum
The second edition of "Behind PlanPhilly" will take place on Tuesday, June 12, and will be a moderated panel discussion that explores how Philadelphia might approach land banking and vacant property reform.
The panel will be the first on-the-record discussion between the mayoral administration, City Council, the development community, and the non-profit sector on the potential impact of pending legislation on citizens, neighborhood organizations, and city tax and revenue functionality. This will be a timely conversation, as the Sanchez-Green land banking bill will be discussed at City Council in June. Prize-winning journalist Patrick Kerkstra will moderate the discussion.
- Maria D. Quiñones-Sánchez, City Councilwoman and land bank bill co-sponsor
- Bridget Collins-Greenwald, the City’s soon-to-be-named new Property Commissioner
- Sandy Salzman, Executive Director, New Kensington Community Development Corporation
- Anne Fadullon, Vice President, Building Industry Association.
Here are the details:
Tuesday, June 12th

5:00pm - 6:00pm: Registration and Happy Hour; 6:00pm - 8:00pm: Panel Discussion and Q&A
