ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

A new community coalition made up of several non-profits is taking on a problem that has plagued St. Louis for decades: vacant buildings.

Vacant buildings, which have been known to be magnets for crime, are costly as some estimates say upkeep and security on the buildings costs nearly $15 million a year.

The coalition has created what it calls a “Plain Language Resource Guide” to provide resources for those plagued by problem properties.
