BAD Buildings Program Model

Step 1: Form BAD Buildings Team

BAD Buildings Team are comprised of local stakeholders, volunteers, elected officials, civic organizations, and local business owners and formed through an open-public community informational meeting.

Step 2: Train BAD Buildings Team

Members of the Program train the community Team on how to identify, survey, and research local BAD Buildings.

Step 3: Develop BAD Building Inventory

The Team creates an inventory which includes compiled site information and a ranked list based on community-defined priorities and feasibility.

Step 4: Create BAD Buildings Plan

The BAD Buildings Plan defines next steps to efficiently use local and leveraged resources to address high priority sites. The plan includes:

  • A prioritized BAD Buildings Inventory
  • Identified high priority properties with significant economic redevelopment potential
  • Next step recommendations for property owners, local revitalization groups, businesses, and the municipal government to address BAD Buildings
  • Redevelopment options for high priority sites including demolition, deconstruction, rehabilitation, and adaptive reuse
