MISSION & VISION

The Newburgh Community Land Bank's mission is to improve the quality of life in Newburgh by stabilizing and revitalizing abandoned properties.

We believe we have a unique role in community revitalization. Our goal is to eliminate barriers to redevelopment, and that goes beyond property renovation and sale alone. We work on making the community, its process and quirks more navigable and accessible, and aim to improve the overall physical experience of residents and visitors beyond just our property inventory. Capacity, nimbleness, and a focused but broad mission make NCLB well positioned to lead and support community development in Newburgh.
