Adjacent Lot Program


Team Members



  • Description: The City of Detroit owns tens of thousands of vacant properties. If you live next to one of these properties, you now have the opportunity to buy it for $200. This app will help you know if the city owns the lot next to you -- and fill out most of the paperwork for you.
  • Impact: This app will help citizens find out if the city owns the lot next to their house, and prepare the forms needed to buy it. It will drastically reduce the City staff time needed (no need to type in paper forms), and it'll shorten the process for citizens. The net effect is more properties in the hands of good owners -- and more properties off the City's books.
