Welcome to the Neighborhood Stabilization Toolkit!

Vacant and abandoned properties are most prevalent in urban areas but are also found in many suburban and rural areas. They present both a problem and an opportunity for New Jersey residents, community organizations and local governments. In their present state they represent a serious problem, yet, they offer valuable opportunities for reuse and redevelopment. This toolkit provides a better understanding of the tools available under New Jersey law to help turn problem properties into vibrant places.
