GREENSBORO, N.C. — The city of Greensboro has begun a push for incoming businesses to develop on vacant lots and in existing buildings that have been abandoned.
It is a part of the city’s Filling in the Framework development plan, which is one of the six big ideas listed in the city’s Comprehensive Plan for 2040.
City and development leaders said this will help increase the value of the neighborhoods around these current “eye sores.”
“The property itself will become more valuable. It will also help create jobs that will make the local economy more vibrant,” Greensboro Committee Chair Justin Outling said.
The idea came after a survey found many in the community wanted a more dense and vibrant community near their homes.
There is not list of vacant and abandon properties that could be developed. There is also not a current list available online of existing land and buildings
