More About Cleaning & Greening
1. Learn more about vacant land in your area
Learn more about vacant land in your neighborhood that has been a nuisance, or that you may want to buy.
Philadelphia Atlas is the City of Philadelphia’s online source for property information. Type in an address or click around the map. The Philadelphia Water Department also has a Stormwater Billing map that provides detailed property information.
2. Build your vacant land strategy
Two properties on the same block may require different approaches depending on the conditions. Here are questions to consider:
Is the property in the City’s Land Bank database?
Search and express interest in properties the City has for sale.
What City Council district is the property located in?
3. Ask for help
Vacant land policy has changed a lot in recent years. You may have to ask a lot of questions.
