Common Ground has been working with the City of Milwaukee to change zombie properties into homes for families — but mortgage servicing companies Owen and Nationstar have been less than helpful.

City officials, as well as Common Ground, have talked about the need to get information from these companies. Now the City Attorney’s office has crafted an ordinance that would require these companies to notify the City of their inventory, more specifically of properties they are choosing not to pursue foreclosure on. This would greatly help with the City’s zombie property problem.

This ordinance is being presented Tuesday afternoon at 1:30 PM at the Zoning, Neighborhoods and Development Committee meeting
