The Bureau of Neighborhood Services (BNS) is responsible for code enforcement and permitting. We receive point level data from this department and transform this into aggregated community-level metrics. Often, trends in neighborhood change and gentrification can be indicated by building activity long before they are seen in demographic data.

Example Indicators

New construction permits per square mile, number of commercial building permits, residential renovation permits, Mowing Orders (per 100 housing units), Boarding Orders (per 100 housing units)
