While property lines don't belong in OSM, they can be useful. Having parcel
boundaries can be useful to figure out the address of a building.
Especially if you can get access to the property, i.e. the owner has no
trespassing signs posted. Other tools such as QGIS and PostGIS come in
handy for getting your data ready for import.

As far as what needs to be done. First, read the import guidelines on the
wiki. Then create a import page on the wiki as described in the wiki. Get
the local community involved. Announce on talk-us as well as this list.

Good luck,
