The ‘Mow to Own’ Program is allows residents who own an occupied residential or commercial property to purchase adjacent vacant lots for $125. Applications are submitted to the St. Louis Land Reutilization Authority (LRA) Board of Commissioners for review. Following approval, the successful applicant receives a deed to the property with a two-year maintenance lien. As long as there are no violations and no complaints in that time period, the LRA will remove the maintenance lien. If there are violations, the LRA can re-acquire the property.
