Introduction to Neighborhood Stabilization

Neighborhood Stabilization can be used to understand current property conditions, return blighted properties to productive use, and engage the public in neighborhood stabilization conversations.

It provides neighborhood stabilization program managers the ability to develop strategies that assist in the rehabilitation of properties that might otherwise become sources of abandonment and blight. The result can be used to rehabilitate, resell, or redevelop properties in order to stabilize neighborhoods and help to curtail the decline of property values in neighborhoods. Neighborhood Stabilization is typically implemented by planning departments, building officials, health and human services agencies, and other local government agencies that want to develop a location-driven approach to neighborhood stabilization.

The Neighborhood Stabilization solution delivers a set of capabilities that help you conduct property surveys, measure the fragility of neighborhoods, track blight, demolition activity, and publish a focused set of information products for citizens in your community.
