Texas Passes Legislation to Turn Unused Lands into Grocery Stores


Share On Social!

Lawmakers in Texas have approved a new law that gives folks the option of using properties in land banks to improve the health of their community.

In Texas, before the act was passed, land in the land bank could only be used for housing. Now, the city can allow people to use this land to build grocery stores in areas that desperately need better access to fresh, healthy foods.

An active community member in Dallas, Texas wants his community to be aware of the new legislation that could potentially help their south Dallas neighborhood.

Can your community take advantage of Texas’s new law?
