In an effort to guide data-driven decision making and better understand vacancy in the City, several GCC partners and members have been working - as a project of the Vacancy Collaborative - to compile data across multiple City departments and provide a comprehensive database of vacant properties to the public through the Vacant Properties Portal.
This working prototype can be viewed at www.stlvacancy.com (or by clicking the photo below). The prototype represents vacancy data as of June 2018. Volunteers from Daugherty Business Solutions and OpenSTL are working to create the final version of the website to automatically update as parcel information changes. This automated version is expected to be complete in Fall of 2018 and will allow residents and stakeholders working to address vacancy access to real-time vacant property information, as well as a running update of vacancy metrics to which we can hold ourselves accountable.
