Framework: The New Potential for Data in Managing Neighborhood Change
Figure 1. Foreclosures and problem properties in Mendenhall Estates, Memphis, 2007
Data plotted as a map. Figure 1 shows the locations of foreclosed properties and problem properties by parcel in Memphis' Mendenhall Estates neighborhood as of 2007. The map also uses a key of colors and patterns to show the following indicators of status or condition for each property: foreclosures; vacant lots; environmental problems; cosmetic repairs needed; some structural repairs needed; extreme dilapidation; burned out properties. The map shows no vacant lots, only a few properties with extreme dilapidation or burnout, and dozens of properties with the other conditions distributed throughout the map.
City and neighborhood groups--and ultimately community development corporations and others working with Neighborhood Stabilization Program funding--can use such maps to target properties for enhanced code enforcement, identify abandoned homes and demolition candidates, and inform property-acquisition plans.
