The Side Lot Program is designed to turn vacant, publicly-owned, and tax-foreclosed properties into yards, driveways, and gardens for Wayne County residents. Under the Program, the Land Bank identifies suitable properties and works with nearby eligible residents to purchase them at a significantly discounted price, often as low as $250. The Land Bank operates a streamlined process that can deliver a deed to the new owner in a matter of days.
The Side Lot Program has reinvigorated vacant parcels in cities and townships across Wayne County. If you believe that a parcel next to your house is owned by the Land Bank, you may search for the property and submit an application through our website – or send us a message with your address for more information.
