The Cuyahoga County Land Reutilization Corporation (CCLRC) is the first of its kind in the state of Ohio. The Ohio General Assembly enacted legislation in April 2009 that allowed the formation of county land reutilization corporations—nonprofit entities that develop, manage, and rehabilitate abandoned or foreclosed properties. In an effort to mitigate the effects of the ongoing foreclosure crisis, CCLRC ensures that vacant properties are properly maintained and sold to qualifying inhabitants or developers. Land can even be used for community green space, urban agriculture, storm water management, or other ecological aims. CCLRC’s management helps curb land speculation and real estate flipping that can lead to housing crisis.
