Cook County land bank committee proposed

Two members of the Cook County Board took the first step Tuesday toward creating a countywide land bank to handle the abundant supply of vacant, abandoned, tax-delinquent and foreclosed homes and commercial properties within the county. The formation of a land bank has been discussed at the county level for months, but there has been disagreement about whether a pilot program should be done in one specific area of the county or whether it should be rolled out countywide.
