For the Zillow/HUD hackathon in Seattle

This tool takes multiple data sources and combines them to provide census block granularity suggestions for HUD to create new housing developments. For the sake of the hackathon we looked at Chicago, because they had many sources of helpful data. We hope that in the future, this promotes inter-departmental communication regarding government-owned land.
