Section 24-3-7

Acquisition, preparation for development or disposal of undeveloped vacant land by housing authorities, etc.

Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the acquisition, preparation for development, or disposal of undeveloped vacant land shall constitute a redevelopment project, under this title or any other law, which may be undertaken in the same manner provided in this title, or any amendments or provisions supplemental thereto, by any housing authority now or hereafter established pursuant to this title or by any governing body of any incorporated city or town, if such acquisition of undeveloped vacant land is determined, as provided in this section, to be essential to the proper clearance, redevelopment, rehabilitation, or conservation of a slum or blighted area of a community or to its general slum clearance or urban renewal program. Such determination shall be made by the housing authority of such community or the governing body of any incorporated city or town adopting a resolution to that effect, which shall include a finding that the conditions affecting the land to be acquired (by reason of the predominance of defective or inadequate street layout; faulty lot layout in relation to size or adequacy; lack of accessibility or usefulness; diversity of ownership, tax, or special assessment delinquency; defective or unusual conditions of title, improper subdivisions, or obsolete plattings; or any one or combination of such factors) substantially impair or arrest the sound growth of the community, retard the provision of needed housing accommodations and constitute an economic or social liability, and that the need for housing accommodations has been or will be increased as a result of the clearance, rehabilitation, or conservation of slum or blighted areas in the community.
