We are pleased to announce that the seventh national Reclaiming Vacant Properties (RVP) Conference will come to Baltimore, Maryland, next year on September 28-30, 2016!
The conference will be held at the Hilton Baltimore and is expected to draw approximately 1,000 professionals to the city.
The Center for Community Progress selected Baltimore as the site of the conference because of the opportunity to showcase the work underway among the city’s vibrant nonprofit and community-based organizations, as well as in local government, philanthropy, and other institutions.
“Baltimore faces major challenges related to vacant properties. But the city is also home to many innovative efforts to create safe, stable neighborhoods of opportunity for all residents,” said Tamar Shapiro, president and CEO of the Center for Community Progress. “Against that backdrop, Baltimore feels like the perfect setting for the learning and exchanges that happen at the national Reclaiming Vacant Properties Conference.”
Held every eighteen months, the Reclaiming Vacant Properties Conference is the sole national conference dedicated to helping communities find new solutions for vacant, abandoned, tax-delinquent, and other problem properties.
It attracts and connects professionals from many interrelated fields, including community development, urban policy, code enforcement, affordable housing, land banking, urban planning, economic development, and public safety.
