Census Tracts 9 and 16

From the Dayton Daily News:

Do we really live in the second most vacant census tract in the country? Well, sort of. This statistic is about vacant buildings (ie: standing units of housing), not vacant lots. There are a ton of vacant buildings in OTR. They great buildings, and they are worth saving. I am glad they have not been demolished when they became run-down and then vacant. To me, this is not bad news. This just shows that the bones are there for rebuilding. Instead of "high vacancy", this table should be titled "most potential".

Here is a map of the census tracts:

We can fill these Census Tracts up with the introduction of a modern streetcar line improving access and reducing parking requirements in these urban tracks of land.
