Suffolk County Landbank Corporation
What is the Suffolk County Landbank Corporation?
- The Suffolk County Landbank Corporation (SCLBC) is a non-profit entity authorized under New York State’s Land Bank Act (Article 16 of the Not-for-Profit Corporation Law), which passed in 2011. It is not a county agency, but operates in close affiliation with Suffolk County Government.
- SCLBC facilitates the remediation and re-development of tax-delinquent brownfield properties within Suffolk County.
Why was the SCLBC created?
- As of February 2013, there were 133 tax delinquent and potentially contaminated parcels within Suffolk County. These parcels covered 266 acres, and represented $28.8 million in unpaid taxes and penalties, with an annual burden to Suffolk County taxpayers of $2.1 million.
- Under the Suffolk County Tax Act, the County makes other localities whole for delinquent taxes each year, thereby guaranteeing that the tax receipts expected by the individual municipal budgets will be realized.
- The Suffolk County Tax Act further requires that no tax lien properties be sold by the County for less than the amount of the liens. By establishing this land bank, the minimum lien sales price requirement can be avoided, and the liens on environmentally compromised parcels can be sold to willing buyers.
- The SCLBC is operated by representatives from Suffolk County Government, in accordance with a Memorandum of Understanding between the two entities.
- The Board of Directors is confirmed via resolution of the Suffolk County Legislature.
