Sen. Harold Jones II
District 22

This bill provides to local governments an alternative process for the condemnatio of blighted properties within the local jurisdiction. 

This bill requires that the condemned property:

(A) Is at least 500,000 square feet in size; 
(B) Was built prior to 1995; and
(C) Has not been legally occupied, has not had a tenant, or has been empty for ten consecutive years or has been less than 30 percent occupied for a least 20 consecutive years.

This bill is very similar to SB 531.
