Focus Area(s): Healthy Futures, Economic Opportunity
Summary and Goal: Since our peak population in 1950, St. Louis City has lost over 60% of its population. 1) There are over 25,000 vacant properties in the City, and more than 40% of the City’s census tracts have vacancy rates higher than 20% with most of them concentrated in North St. Louis. 2) Residents in these neighborhoods live with overgrown lots and crumbling buildings that contribute to disinvestment, high rates of poverty, increased crime, decreased property values, and health and public safety risks. These properties strain City resources and affect the prosperity of the entire region. To address these concerns the Vacancy Collaborative (VC) launched in 2018 after several years of effort and planning. The VC is a coalition of partners committed to the reduction of vacant property as a top priority in St. Louis. The VC is not a stand-alone entity, but a coalition of community representatives, private and non-profit stakeholders, and City agencies. The VC helps to coordinate existing vacancy efforts under one umbrella and encourages the public and private sectors to work together toward solutions in a comprehensive and coordinated way.

o Identifying capacity gaps within the coalition
o Developing strategies to meet the needs and fill the gaps
o Investigating grants and funding opportunities to sustain the VC’s work

Help put the Vacancy Action Strategy (the emerging VC strategic plan) into practice by
o Maintaining a comprehensive understanding of Vacancy Collaborative goals as outlined in the Vacancy Action Strategy
o Developing communication tools to carry out the plan
o Creating the procedures and infrastructure to share information with VC partners and neighborhood residents
• Support the development of the VC structure by
o Researching different coalition structures
o Identifying best practices for decision making and governance
o Developing a framework for input and review
o Develop procedures and systems for effective VC governance while recognizing the autonomy and voice of community members and the coalition partner organizations
• Other activities
o Attend relevant meetings of the Vacancy Collaborative committees
o Make occasional presentations to and facilitate discussions with the Vacancy Advisory Committee
