Land Bank Authority

The Berrien County Land Bank Authority will serve as a tool for strategic economic development in our community through its ability to acquire, demolish, rehab, dispose of and hold on to tax-reverted properties and return them to productive use in a rapid manner. It will work with other organizations, agencies and developers in the community who have plans in place for area neighborhoods to ensure a coordinated revitalization plan. The mission of the Berrien County Land Bank is to alleviate blight and increase the tax base through thoughtful acquisition and disposition of tax reverted and abandoned properties, ensuring that land is developed with high standards in the most productive manner.

The Land Bank Authority meets on the Fourth Thursday of every month at 2:00pm at the Berrien County Administration Building, 701 Main Street, St. Joseph
