What is Neighborhood Blight?

When community members discuss neighborhood blight, they are referring to the visible signs of neglect and deterioration in an urban area. Signs of blight include abandoned and dilapidated buildings, vacant lots, trash and debris, and signs of vandalism. Neighborhood blight affects everyone in the community, which is why local leaders often talk about how to fix it. A community’s well-being is strengthened when blight is eliminated, but there are many different approaches to addressing this problem.
