Housing Inventory
Housing Inventory Underway
06/11/2020
By the end of the summer, the City of Statesville will have its first ever housing inventory completed. This record of nearly 10,000 houses will be used by the Planning Department in future decision-making and as an aid in developing priorities for housing-related issues. The inventory is being conducted by Planning Department staff with the help of Recreation and Parks staff, and involves driving by every residential structure within the city limits. The City’s IT staff developed a special software program that allows the inspectors to instantly record the condition of each house, noting whether it is in compliance with the City’s minimum housing code or whether it appears to need repairs or may be abandoned. The report will also list the owner of the property, any reported liens or back taxes, and background on prior maintenance issues.
