While East Price Hill is moving forward, one cannot dismiss the large number of vacant and abandoned properties located throughout the neighborhood. The vacant lots located in the center of the neighborhood are in residential areas and tend to be scattered, smaller lots. These vacant lots require programming that involves the community and connects with existing systems of infrastructure and community support.

When managing vacant lots it is helpful for neighborhoods to create multi-layer asset maps, similar to the ones below. These maps identify community assets (agencies, businesses, organizations, etc.) and vacant lots. By including approximate distances that vacant lots are from community assets, a neighborhood can identify partners to engage with when addressing the revitalization of vacant lots.

For the purpose of evaluating how neighborhood assets can directly link to design strategies and implementation, the following sites are examined in more detail: 960 & 962 Wells Street, 925 Woodlawn Avenue, 2923 Glenway Avenue, and 1814 Wyoming Avenue.
