Abstract

This report was prepared at the request of Builders of Hope, a Texas nonprofit corporation and community-based organization in West Dallas, to examine some of the different legal and policy tools that can be used to improve the abandoned and blighted properties that plague the community. Builders of Hope is working with other community organizations to transform a section of West Dallas into a safe, healthy, and viable neighborhood, with the belief that all residents have the right to live in neighborhoods free from crime and urban blight.
