DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Land Bank Authority is launching a program that will allow city residents to ask questions, voice concerns and discuss revitalization strategies for their neighborhoods.

The authority's Neighborhood Office Hours kick off Thursday from 4-7 p.m. at Farwell Recreation Center on Detroit's east side. Land bank representatives will be available.

Meetings will be held on the third Thursday of each month and will rotate between the seven City Council districts.

The land bank manages vacant city-owned properties. Its programs include home auctions and the sale of side lots. Available side lots can be purchased during the Neighborhood Office Hours.
