In other cities, such as Detroit, Philadelphia and Cleveland, efforts are underway to utilize tax sale foreclosure reform as a way of tackling the myriad of problems associated with vacant buildings. Detroit's Blight Removal Task Force Plan includes an entire section on property tax reform. There, the county treasurer recently sued hundreds of property owners to re-possess properties they acquired through tax sale but failed to maintain. Cleveland's Vacant and Abandoned Properties Action Council recommended county tax lien sale reforms to minimize irresponsible ownership. In Philadelphia, a report by the Pew Charitable Trusts paved a pathway for a bipartisan effort at state-level reforms. While these cities all differ from Baltimore in important ways, their efforts can inform our work.
