Clear winners, lingering eyesores singled out among Philly’s vacant lots
The most well-maintained vacant lots in Philadelphia have been identified — as well as the worst eyesore — in a citywide contest organized by supporters of the Take Back Vacant Land campaign.
The campaign advocates a proposal supported by Philadelphia council members Maria Quiñones-Sanchez and Bill Green. The proposal would create a land bank in the city, making it easier for citizens to take over vacant lots in their neighborhood and renovate them.
