Blight

Dilapidated or abandoned property. Blight causes low property values in the surrounding area, and is strongly associated with crime and capital flight. Many municipalities take steps to reduce blight; for example, a city may offer a tax incentive for a business to move into a blighted area or a grant to repair a building. Some blighted areas, however, are considered to be beyond repair.
