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

This bill requires that the condemned property:

(A) Is at least 375,000 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 15 consecutive years

This bill is very similar to SB 227.
