July 13: Become a SD Building Surveyor

Saturday July 13, 9:30 – 10:30am
[SDCC Office, 6008 Kingsbury Ave.]

SD Houses

Skinker DeBaliviere residents are coming together to create a block-by-block inventory of all buildings in the Skinker DeBaliviere neighborhood. Volunteers will form teams to photograph and document the type, occupancy, condition, and other details of each residential, commerical and institutional that make up our community. This data will be used to help identify revitalization opportunities as well as redevelopment of vacant or underutilized areas that do not positively contribute to the quality of the neighborhood.

At the orientation on Saturday, July 13 we will go over the survey process, form teams, talk about scheduling the survey activity, and go out into the neighborhood to do some sample observation together. Over the course of the summer, our Surveyors will collaborate to create a comprehensive look at what we as a community can do around properties to help meet the stated goals of Skinker DeBaliviere’s Urban Design & Development Plan.

If you have a few hours this summer, we’d love for you to be one of our Surveyors.  To volunteer or to request more information, contact Liz at sdcc@skinker-debaliviere.com or (314) 862-5122. Thanks!
