Welcome to Chicago Heights!
Partner up with the City in a joint effort to battle the adverse effects of abandoned, unmaintained lots!
The Chicago Heights Development Corporation (CHDC), in collaboration with the City of Chicago Heights, has designed a program where people can assist in the remediation of nuisance-conditioned lots. A lot is considered eligible and a public nuisance if it is privately owned, left abandoned, unmaintained, and tax delinquent for in excess of two years. This partnership does not grant ownership but rather permits you to take all reasonable actions necessary to repair existing nuisances, such as cutting of grass, removal of weeds, cleaning, and maintenance at your sole cost. Also, allows you to build a fence, install lighting, or other security measures in accordance with City Code.
Applications available today! Call or stop by our office for more information.
