City of Pittsburgh Adopts Program To Shore Up Inventory Management

The Pittsburgh Urban Renewal Authority (URA) has just gone live with ePropertyPlus, marking the 15 implementation of the tool and the first non-land bank implementation.

The impetus for the implementation comes in light of municipalities continuing to struggling with managing their growing inventories of vacant and blighted properties. “There are millions of vacant properties across the country draining local resources, tax revenues, property values, and neighborhood spirit. ePropertyPlus helps municipalities increase their operational efficiency, improve transparency, and provide a higher level of customer service to the public,” said Scott Meyer, President of STR.

ePropertyPlus provides end-to-end parcel inventory management from pre-acquisition planning through final disposition, including extensive inventory search functionality, broad mapping capabilities, online service provider management, flexible program configuration, and real time reporting.

A key component of ePropertyPlus is its public view that provides public access to search for available properties, apply for properties on-line, and monitor the status of any applications they have submitted online. The 24/7 public view increases the online services to your community, and reduces the number of phone calls about available properties and status of applications submitted.
