Vacant Commercial Property Registration

Abandoned and vacant buildings contribute to blight, discourage economic development, diminish appreciation of property values, endanger public health and safety, attract criminal activity, and create fire hazards. It is the responsibility of property owners to prevent buildings from becoming a burden to the neighborhood and community and a threat to the public health, safety, and welfare. Vacant buildings result in increased expenditures for police, fire, and code enforcement inspections and calls. Maintenance of the public health, safety, and welfare thus requires the City to maintain an accurate registration of all Vacant Commercial Buildings and to impose each of the requirements, procedures and penalties set forth herein.
