Rural Blight

Faculty:

  • Ann Eisenberg, Assistant Professor of Law, University of South Carolina School of Law
  • Jesse Richardson, Professor of Law and Lead Land Use Attorney, West Virginia University College of Law

Vacant, abandoned, and dilapidated buildings plague rural communities. Yet, few resources are available to understand and address the unique legal issues often characterizing rural blight. This discussion will cover the factors that may make blight remediation different in rural areas, how rural practitioners and local governments can approach the issue despite limited resources, and the policy reforms that show potential to facilitate tackling blight in rural communities.
