Program 23: Foreclosed Property Tracking System

The Department of Public Works will continue to utilize existing staff and code enforcement/property rehabilitation procedures and coordinate with the Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk to maintain an active GIS mapping database of properties entering the foreclosure process by recording notice of defaults. Mapping, tracking, and monitoring properties in the foreclosure database, along with continued coordination with other County departments, will focus efforts on early detection to improve existing and future properties before deterioration results in substandard conditions.

Objectives By 2014, develop a foreclosure database for mapping, tracking, and monitoring properties in foreclosure.
Throughout the planning period, continue to coordinate with other County departments, focusing on early detection of foreclosures.
During the planning period, use the information to inform community-based planning efforts, such as area plans and TOD specific plans, and place-based programs and strategies.
Policies Policy 5.3: Enforce health, safety, building, and zoning laws directed at property maintenance as an ongoing function of the County government.
Policy 6.1: Invest public and private resources in the maintenance and rehabilitation of existing housing to prevent or reverse neighborhood deterioration.
Policy 9.1: Ensure collaboration among County departments and other agencies in the delivery of housing and related services.
