The Westmoreland County Redevelopment Authority & Land Bank

The Westmoreland County Redevelopment Authority and Land Bank have taken a leadership role to help build healthy and whole communities and reposition our towns by eliminating blight and its influences throughout Westmoreland County. The work is carried out through blight demolition, residential and commercial rehabilitation, acquisition and repurposing of vacant and tax-delinquent properties, accessible and affordable housing, training and education partnerships, historic preservation, and brownfield redevelopment. Working hand in hand with local officials, and like-minded organizations, these efforts will deliver more desirable communities in which to live, work, raise a family, and prosper.
