BAM: In Partnership, In Action; A Flexible Action Plan for the Next Three Years

Posted on

The Blight Authority of Memphis (BAM) is ready to ACT—ready to play a more meaningful role in the local fight against vacant, abandoned, and deteriorated (“VAD”) properties in service to the neighbors and neighborhoods that are negatively impacted by systemic vacancy, abandonment, and disinvestment.

This Action Plan is intended to not only help give direction and suggest prioritization to BAM, but also to uplift and honor the many local stakeholders and community partners that are excited by the promise and value BAM can bring to the local fight against blighted properties. It is meant to offer local decision-makers and elected officials a menu of services BAM can uniquely provide in support of neighborhood-driven stabilization and revitalization efforts—and to describe the partners and resources needed to carry out this critical work.
