This month the Philadelphia Land Bank welcomed two new board members including Anna Shipp, Project Manager of SBN’s GSI Partners! The Philadelphia Land Bank is a quasi-governmental board that oversees the transfer and reuse of tax-delinquent or vacant property for public benefit or to be resold for re-development. The board includes lawyers, policy experts, and government administrators. Anna will offer her knowledge of GSI and its benefits to ensure properties are also considered for stormwater management, open-space creation and preservation, and other public benefits. We are very happy to learn of Anna’s appointment and confident that she will be a strong advocate for leveraging Philadelphia’s vacant land for investments in GSI.
