State and local governments have many tools to redevelop blighted areas, including:
- Land acquisition (including condemnation)
- Construction of local public improvements
- Disposition of land and local public improvements
- Tax abatement
- Tax increment financing
Barnes & Thornburg has represented communities in a variety of redevelopment projects, ranging from the redevelopment of a single parcel in a small town to the redevelopment of the urban core of a large city.
