Our customer Climate Central has released a deep data analysis report on the sinking tax base & implications of rising temperatures across the country. To calculate the taxable value of affected parcels and buildings, Climate Central used standardized land parcel data from Regrid.
This analysis delivers an assessment of sea level rise impact on the tax base of hundreds of coastal U.S. counties—specifically, the potential loss of taxable properties caused by shifting tidal boundaries. Findings by the county are detailed in more than 250 reports and a national summary including data on the acreage, buildings, number of properties, and assessed value projected to be at risk this century, by decade.
With support from the JPMorgan Chase Foundation, Regrid partnered with the Western Reserve Land Conservancy to update our platform, gather data, provide our technology to government, nonprofit, and community groups, and organize property surveys across Cleveland, Cincinnati, and Columbus, Ohio.
The projects conducted took various forms, with various groups and individuals in each city continuing to use the tools for projects big and small.
In 2014, Detroit knew it had a blight problem - but nobody knew exactly how many structures were vacant. Because good data is crucial to good decision-making, Regrid teamed up with Data Driven Detroit and the Blight Elimination Task Force led by Dan Gilbert to conduct an ambitious survey: photograph and evaluate every single property within Detroit's 139 square miles. 200 Detroiters used Regrid's mapping technology and the Regrid Property App to get the job done. Data from this unprecedented effort led to hundreds of millions of dollars in federal funding allocated to blight removal and demolitions. It also provided valuable information to City Hall, developers, and neighborhood groups about the state of their city.
History will marvel that Detroit’s most intense period of displacement and property damage happened in the 21st century through misguided tax foreclosure and auction systems. Local governments and organizations use data from Regrid and The Regrid Property App to visit people facing foreclosure, understand their situation, connect them to resources, and advocate for change.
