As we have reviewed pondered and studied the City demolition program it all comes down to this

This house will continue to sit here as is.


While this house will be demolished.

8404 Belfast

Why you ask?

Because FEMA will not pay for the demolition of the first house but they will pay for the demolition of the second.

These 2 homes are owned by the same negligent property owner. So what would make sense is to use Code Enforcement to force the property owner to deal with his property. Instead the City continues to use FEMA money and guidelines, and the inaction of a negligent property homeowner to dictate the look of our Neighborhoods.

Sadly for this Neighborhood the property owner also owns this house which he has been trying to demolish for 2 years
