Six cities with a long list of blighted properties have the right to sell tax-delinquent houses to organizations such as Habit for Humanity. The House of Delegates has decided it will not expand a list of cities that can unload a blighted property without holding a public auction.  The cities that get that option are Richmond (pictured), Petersburg, Hopewell, Norfolk, Newport News and Hampton. The State Senate favored adding Lynchburg to the list, but the House has refused to go along.
