Who We Are
The Houston County Land Bank Authority is a public entity authorized by state law and established by the Houston County Board of Commissioners and the Perry City Council in 2018.
It is governed by a Board of Directors appointed by the Houston County Board of Commissioners and Perry City Council. Board members are appointed to four-year terms.
What We Do
The LBA is established to acquire tax delinquent properties, surplus properties of the local governments, and other properties to foster the public purpose of returning land to an effective utilization status for affordable housing, new industry, and jobs for the citizens of Houston County.
The LBA mission is to convert tax delinquent properties, redevelop distressed areas, discourage tax delinquency, facilitate beneficial land use, encourage investment, avoid tax sale title problems, and reduce blight in the community. The Land Bank Authority does not have taxing or condemnation authority.
If you would like to donate property to the Land Bank or have questions about the Land Bank Authority, contact Bryan Wood at (478) 988-2720.
When We Meet
The Board of Directors meets on an as-needed basis, but at least once a year on the third Thursday in October.
Meetings are held in the large conference room in the Houston County Public Works Building located at 2018 Kings Chapel Road, Perry, Georgia, and normally begin at 4:30 p.m. unless otherwise posted.
