Memphis Property Hub Using Micro-Level Data to Drive Solutions

August 8, 2016. Memphis Daily News

The Memphis Property Hub compiles data from multiple public sources to tell the story of Shelby County’s 351,000 parcels. Every piece of property, whether vacant land or a commercial structure, can be traced with Memphis Light, Gas and Water payments, appraisals from the Shelby County Assessor, foreclosure history and code enforcement infractions. Formerly, interested parties had to search out this information from separate websites and sources.

“It gives us a micro view into our neighborhoods and how they work,” said Ed Cross, who is developing the Memphis Property Hub with blight-fighting nonprofit Neighborhood Preservation Inc.

The micro-level data provided can be a game changer as the planning community continues its trend towards empowering neighborhood-level groups to advocate for the change they need in their own communities.
