Government Looks to Sell More than 12K Unneeded Buildings

President Obama has proposed a Civilian Property Realignment Board to help the federal government sell more than 12,000 buildings it has deemed to be excessive, an initiative the administration says could save taxpayers $15 billion over the first three years of the program.

In conjunction with the announcement, The White House released a data set of the properties, including an interactive map showing more than 7,000 of the properties located around the countries. These properties range from sheds to underutilized office buildings and empty warehouses.

Properties whose location is sensitive, such as Department of Defense installations, are not represented on this map, but will go through the same review process.

You can check out the map here. And a poster with much of the information here.
