2018 Citywide Vacancy Survey

Wednesday, April 11, 2018

A citywide vacancy survey was completed in February 2018 that identified 2,686 vacant residential and commercial structures. This a 31 percent reduction in the number of vacant properties counted in 2016 and great news for the City of Youngstown!

The survey categorized vacant properties by condition.  A-rated properties are in good condition; C-rated properties are in fair condition; and F-rated properties are in poor condition and are in critical need of demolition.  The number of vacant properties is down significantly since 2016 when 3,910 structures were identified as vacant.  More than 1,000 properties were demolished by the City of Youngstown and the Mahoning County Land Bank and dozens of homes have seen significant repairs and investment in 2016 and 2017.
