February 2021

A New Model of First Suburban Revitalization: Achieving Equity and Sustainability through Land Readjustment and a Land Trust in
Silverton, Ohio – Phase 1


The Village of Silverton in Ohio is interested in exploring new methods of land assemblage and land ownership  as a way of promoting more equitable and sustainable development. This land readjustment analysis is the first in a series of studies.


The approach aims to strengthen the long-term economic security of the original property owners, while easing the land assemblage process and offering new methods of development for investors. It would also provide the Silverton municipality an opportunity to strengthen their existing tax base and create a more attractive, walkable community hub, with more density and comprehensively planned elements.

Thursday, 04/01/2021, 12:30PM (EST)

University of Cincinnati College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning

Impacting Urban Future Lecture Series 


The presentation will provide an overview of land readjustment in other parts of the world in both urban and rural settings and examine how it could be structured in a more suburban context in the United States. The goal of the land readjustment strategy, in this case, would be to repurpose underutilized low-density areas and transform them into higher-density, mixed-use neighborhoods, adding value to the local economy and creating more vibrant local neighborhoods. 

Moreover, issues of collective land ownership will also be examined as a vehicle to create lasting and meaningful community wealth. 

This presentation is being organized by the University of Cincinnati, College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning.
