At the launch of the Vacancy Collaborative and the Vacant Properties Portal on July 11, St. Louis residents, City departments, local non-profits and more broke out into small groups to investigate the site and provide guidance on methods, functionality and ease-of-use, and to provide recommendations for changes and additions.
In addition, we are compiling feedback submitted by email and through the site. Inaccuracies for specific parcels are helpful in refining the methods and ensuring that vacant properties are fully reflected, and that occupied properties are not displayed as vacant.
We will continue to compile feedback (more than 200 comments to date) as we refine the methods, and will prioritize recommendations for additions and enhancements. This will take some time, but we will notify all contributors when the next update to the site is complete.
If you would like to submit comments, please use the form below or email Laura Ginn at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your interest and support!
