Neighborhood-by-Neighbor: A Citywide Problem Property Audit

Beginning in February 2008, interested volunteers (in teams of three) began a “windshield survey” of their neighborhoods, driving down each street and documenting each blighted property using portable data entry units with built-in digital cameras.

Over the next two years, every residential property in the city of Memphis was evaluated, and an audit record was created for every residential property in violation of our city’s anti-blight housing code. Neighborhood-by-Neighbor indexed 48,648 problem properties citywide and created a photo and record for special populations for a total of 59,601 audits.
