Overview

In 2013, the City of Blue Springs established the Land Bank of Blue Springs, Missouri. Properties in Blue Springs held by the Jackson County Land Trust due to non-payment of back taxes were transferred to the Land Bank of Blue Springs. All properties sold for back taxes where the bid was not sufficient to pay the judgment are transferred to the Land Bank rather than the Jackson County Land Trust.

The Land Bank of Blue Springs is responsible for returning non-revenue-generating and non-tax-producing land to usefulness by managing, selling, transferring, and disposing of real estate owned by the Land Bank. For parcel details and maps, please see the Property Information page.

Established by Municipal Code Section 120.540
