COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio's state-owned properties and buildings can now be searched online.
A new interactive tool unveiled Friday by the state treasurer's office pulls together statewide imaging and mapping software into a searchable database.
Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel (man-DEHL') said he hopes Ohioans will use the tool to provide feedback on any properties that might be underused or not used at all. Surplus properties may be taken off the state rolls and sold for extra revenue to taxpayers, he said.
Properties can be searched by county, zip code, city or address, and viewed and measured online. They are color coded based on what agency owns the land.
