While Baltimore's vacant and abandoned building stock is often viewed as a problem, it is also an opportunity. Cleaning up and redeveloping these properties can help raise property values, create community amenities, increase local tax revenue, and attract new residents and businesses. Vacants to Value (V2V) is Mayor Rawlings- Blake's new initiative to do just that. Through V2V, we're getting more of Baltimore's vacant and abandoned properties cleaned up and redeveloped more quickly, efficiently, and economically.
