New Properties Available

The Lackawanna County Land Bank partnered with NeighborWorks NEPA to address two blighted structures in the City of Scranton.  As part of the NeighborWorks NEPA West Scranton's Revitalization Plan, the Land Bank acquired the Price Street and Hampton Street properties at the May 2023 Tax Claim Judicial Sale .  NeighborWorks NEPA provided the funding and was responsible for the demolition of the two structures. The properties will now be available for purchase and development through the Lackawanna County Land Bank. The Land Bank is grateful for our partnership with NeighborWorks NEPA to help eliminate blight in Lackawanna County.
