The Code Enforcement Board has the authority to authorize demolition of unsafe structures when other efforts to bring about compliance have failed. While infrequent, demolition is sometimes necessary to protect the public health, safety and welfare. In all cases the owner(s) receives notice and ample opportunity to correct the violation(s), either by repair and rehabilitation or by demolition themselves. Multiple public hearings are convened at which the owner(s) has the opportunity to present testimony and evidence on their behalf. When demolitions are authorized, though, the City must follow strict regulations for asbestos testing and abatement (if necessary), as well as additional notice requirements and finally procurement of the demolition service.
The following is a list of demolitions authorized by the Code Enforcement Board along with their current status. Specific case records can be viewed by clicking the hyperlinked Case Number, which will open the case in eTRAKiT. Questions about these or any other case should be directed to the Code Enforcement Office.
