2838 Fourth St. {11th Ward} Central City

Housing Conservation District Review Committee Meeting Agenda
January 8th, 2007
10 a.m. Room 7E07
City Hall

Result: This house is up for review at next Monday’s Meeting

The City Attorney’s Neighborhood One, Housing Unit Task Demolition Task Force has applied to demolish this two-story structure in Central City. The owner, the Second Mount Calvary Baptist Church permitted this building to fall into blight in recent years and intends to leave the lot vacant. Churches consistently purchase property, allow it to blight and have it torn down by the city or tear it down themselves simply to bank land around a church. There are about six churches in one square block in this neighborhood, they are not open, there are few residents who have to returned to attend. However, the city’s new wifi system is available here.
