After the auto industry left Flint, the city’s population fell 50% from its peak in 1960. This left many vacant and blighted properties throughout the city. Residents and city leaders wanted to make addressing blight in Flint a priority, but the city did not have enough data to create an effective plan or the resources to carry it out. So city leaders created the Flint Property Portal, which allowed residents to easily collect and report data about blighted properties. Watch the video to learn how residents used to the portal to help improve their city.
