Cities’ ability to mount successful and equitable revitalization efforts are powerfully determined by state laws and policies. In his latest report, renowned urban policy expert Alan Mallach tackles how state policies drive local revitalization outcomes. In From State Capitols to City Halls: Smarter State Policies for Stronger Cities, produced by the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy in partnership with the Center for Community Progress, Mallach highlights the central role of state laws, policies, and resource allocations in defining the framework for cities’ efforts for equitable revitalization. In a follow-up research study published at the Center for Community Progress, State Policy and Problem Property Regulation, Mallach drills down on how state laws and policies affect local attempts to revitalize problem properties.
