    Urban Homesteading

    The Urban Homesteading Program (UH) is an incentive to encourage single-family, infill development on vacant, buildable lots owned by the City of Lakeland. Generally, these lots are offered for sale to persons/families that will construct a new single-family home for use as their principal residence.  Purchasers can be of any income range as the program is intended to create a mix of incomes in the neighborhoods where UH lots are located.
