BACKGROUND

The purpose of the following survey is to provide a
meaningful basis for determining the disposition of 447
city-owned parcels. Tlie parcels included in the present
survey have been acquired through tax foreclosure. Many
of the sites were originally considered as Infill sites
when first surveyed tv/o years ago but were not chosen as such,
New recommendations have been made in this report.

These volumes combine two reports compiled in May
and June of this year and bound separately.

For every parcel included in this survey a form has
been prepared with an attached map of the site location.
