The Tioga County Property Development Corporation (TCPDC) Land Bank is soliciting interest from the public to purchase and redevelop the following ten cleared properties and/or renovate two additional residential properties in the Villages of Waverly and Owego in Tioga County.
In the Village of Waverly, properties include 108 Park Place, 112 Park Place, 452 Cayuta Ave., 530 E. Chemung St., 429 Chemung St., 127 Providence St., 457 Fulton St., 207 Howard St. (to be renovated), and 35 Lincoln St. (to be renovated).

The TCPDC Land Bank is a nonprofit entity set up primarily to address vacant, abandoned blighted and tax delinquent properties, countywide. Funds from the State Attorney General’s Community Revitalization Initiative through Enterprise Community Partners, Inc. were awarded to rebuild neighborhoods and eliminate slums and blight.
TCPDC Land Bank is taking steps toward achieving healthier, more vital, and safer neighborhoods for all. Many other benefits occur because of these revitalization efforts.
Martha Sauerbrey, TCPDC chair and Tioga County legislative chair, shared, “This program will encourage economic growth instead of allowing deterioration. It will help address the safety and health of our residents while stabilizing and transforming our neighborhoods. Now the redevelopment begins.”
For program information and/or questions, contact Teresa Saraceno, Land Bank director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (607) 687-8260.
