STL Vacancy Interactive Map

Landmarks' staff are proud to have been involved with the St. Louis Vacancy Collaborative for several years now. The Vacany Collaborative (VC) is a coalition of community members, private and non-profit stakeholders, and City agencies committed to reducing vacant property in St. Louis. The VC helps to coordinate existing vacancy efforts under one umbrella and empower the public and private sectors to work together to find solutions.

Here is a link to the VC's interactive St. Louis Vacancy Map

The goals of the VC are to:
1. Build capacity for transparent and equitable development decision-making and reinvestment that is tailored to local conditions.

2. Hold private owners of vacant properties accountable through strategic code enforcement and neighborhood-based tools.

3. Consistently engage with St. Louis neighborhoods and support efforts to build the capacity of residents to work collectively. Support neighborhood planning and link vacancy efforts, making sure that residents are at the center.

4. Continue working toward transparent and consistent vacancy-related processes at the City level. Support continued modernization efforts with regard to the way the City tracks and addresses vacancy.
