The City Council on November 19th gave final approval to two ordinances relating to vacant and nuisance properties in an effort to improve quality of life and neighborhood stability for city residents.
First, the “Foreclosed and Abandoned Property Registration, Security and Maintenance” ordinance creates a database of vacant and abandoned properties, and requires owners to keep them well-maintained and secured. Second, the so-called “nuisance properties” ordinance is two-fold, and sets new penalties for properties cited for loud and unruly gatherings, and creates a new section on “chronic nuisance properties.”
