Meet Gus Frangos
Gus Frangos is a real estate lawyer with over 30 years of experience. Gus Frangos was the primary drafter of all of the Ohio statutes (SB 353) creating “county land banks.” He also drafted all of Ohio’s tax foreclosure reforms (HB 294) that are currently in use today. The reforms authorized expedited and administrative tax foreclosure of vacant and abandoned lands resulting in clean and marketable titles. This alternative tax collection tool also enabled community development organizations and responsible private developers to repurpose vacant, abandoned and tax-delinquent lands into tax productive use.
The tax foreclosure reforms and land bank model in Ohio are considered nationally as the gold standard. Mr. Frangos has served as the President of the Cuyahoga Land Bank in Ohio since it started in 2009.
Mr. Frangos is a real estate and transactional attorney by trade, specializing in real estate purchases and sales, constitutional law, land use, and general business law. He previously served as a Cleveland City Councilman for two terms, and a Judicial Magistrate for the Cleveland Municipal Court.
The Land Bank Revolution
Authored by Jim Rokakis and Gus Frangos
The devastating impact that the foreclosure crisis had on America in the period between 2000-2010 resulted in what came to be known as the Great Recession. Communities in Ohio were especially hard hit.
In Cuyahoga County, a group of dedicated public officials and community activists put together a powerful new tool called a county land bank. Over a period of ten years, this group of community leaders has raised hundreds of millions of dollars, demolished tens of thousands of vacant and abandoned properties, and made life better for countless Ohioans. This is their story.
