iVueit recently completed a Residential, Commercial, and Vacant Property site survey for The City of Albany, GA. The objective of this project was to determine the scale of damage remaining from Hurricane Michael which caused widespread destruction throughout the city in 2018.
Upon receiving their Community Development Block Grant in 2020, the Department of Planning and Development Services recognized the crucial need to collaborate with a contractor capable of gathering, reviewing, and sharing the substantial amount of property data required for informed decision-making affecting economic development within the city.
The iVueit Solution
- Leveraged the 100’s of Vuers who already had the iVueit app downloaded to complete nearby surveys in their own community as well as recruit new Vuers through tv and digital advertising
- Filtered hundreds of thousands of dollars back into hands of Albany residents who completed the Vues
- Cut project projection time from 1+ year to under 30 days, while simultaneously freeing up Albany’s internal resources to focus on other projects
- Maximized the utilization of CDBG funding by saving hundreds of thousands of dollars through cost-effective survey implementation within their recovery plan
How Will This Information Benefit the City of Albany?
- Aid in building a resiliency plan & identify ways that will help Albany build back stronger
- Provide additional data to attract investors and businesses seeking opportunities for impactful economic development
- Attract more businesses and residents to Albany, fostering the growth of high-quality neighborhoods within the city
The City of Albany, Georgia, needed a parcel-by-parcel inventory of the entire jurisdiction. The project’s purpose is to assess property conditions throughout the City. The survey is a huge undertaking, with over 30,000 parcels that need to be photographed and evaluated. Fortunately for us, iVueit was just the company to take on this project. They have been extremely easy to work with, and we are very satisfied with the relationship so far.
