Viewers can search properties by city department or city council district.  The new, city-owned property feature was activated on the city website this week.</p><p>"Instead of thumbing through pages of paper documents, this new application gives anyone almost instant access from any laptop or desktop computer to a vast inventory of city-owned land, including vacant properties," said Councilman Gates, chair of the city council's Finance, Efficiency, Economy and Sustainability Subcommittee. "Phoenix has been working hard to streamline the economic development process in the city, and this easy-to-use web application is a welcome addition to this effort. It gives the community the opportunity to see what is out there and bring development ideas and opportunities to the city."</p><p>The application is <a href="/imap">viewable from the "Map It" </a>tab along the top of the city's homepage at phoenix.gov and then the selection of the "Find City-Owned Properties" button. </p><p>In addition to the city-owned property feature, the IMAP application allows residents to identify all city parks, libraries, transit facilities, police precincts, fire stations and other city facilities in close radius to their homes or businesses.</p></div>2/6/2015 4:00:00 PMDavid Urbinato602-495-5405
