Substandard Structures

Covers structures that have become open and accessible on unoccupied properties that have deteriorated to the point of unsafe habitation.

Each year vacant structures are inspected to ensure their safety. Property owners are contacted to either make necessary repairs or demolish the structure. Failure to comply will result in the demolition of structures once the structure has been declared hazardous. Since the inception of this program in 2001, 133 structures have been demolished, 16 have been moved off the property and 96 owners have made the necessary repairs.
