The Council has directed staff to focus on improving the appearance and addressing vacant and potentially blighted buildings on US 17-92.
The City Attorney has provided the attached process to be used in order to condemn and demolish abandoned buildings. Staff met to develop the following plan of action:
The Building Official on Friday, July 17th, began an inspection of all vacant buildings located on US 17-92 from the St. John's bridge to Dirksen Drive. Buildings found to be unsafe will be posted with the attached placard. The Building Official will send a curtesy letter to the property owner notifying them that action must be taken on the building.
Simultaneously the Neighborhood Improvement Officer will inspect the lots with abandoned buildings as well as vacant lots for Code Violations. The owners of the lots with code violations will be sent a courtesy letter notifying them of the violations and providing 21 days to address the code violations.
Staff will be prepared to provide additional information to the Council at the Workshop.
