TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - County land bank officials planned to release an analysis of housing in Ohio’s fourth-largest city after a year of surveying properties and collecting data.

The Blade in Toledo reports (https://bit.ly/1dMUoV2 ) that after a surveying nearly 122,000 properties in the city since March of last year, the Lucas County Land Bank was releasing its analysis of Toledo’s housing stock Wednesday.

Lucas County Treasurer and land bank chairman Wade Kapszukiewicz says the survey shows 3.7 percent of Toledo structures are in a condition that requires demolition, a figure he says would pleasantly surprise many residents.

An online database details the information from the survey, including structure photos, unit letter grades and properties’ conditions.

County officials say the survey and database helps community leaders make decisions based on data rather than hunches.
