Land Bank
The Wyandotte County Land Bank is a unit of the Economic Development Department. The Land Bank oversees over 2,000 vacant lots acquired through the Judicial Foreclosure Process and donations. The duties of this division are to put delinquent tax properties back on the tax roll through various strategies that benefit the community. This includes marketing, removing prior year taxes, maintaining an inventory list, accepting parcels as donations and researching neighborhoods in Wyandotte County that contain delinquent taxes.

The Land Bank is part of the Property Management Division. The Land Bank contains more than 500 parcels throughout Wyandotte County, primarily vacant lots obtained through judicial foreclosure, which can be used to build infill housing.
