This tree house on South Bernadotte Street has been cited as an illegal guest house.

The agenda for this week’s upcoming One Stop administrative hearings conducted by the city include forgotten sidewalks and an illegally constructed tree house.

Two Lakeview properties recently were cited for failing to pour sidewalks on the sides of their newly built homes.

Both are corner properties with properly installed sidewalks on the front of the site. Construction of sidewalks is a requirement when redeveloping vacant properties.

In Mid-City, the owner of a back yard tree house on South Bernadotte Street was cited for having a “guest house in rear yard, no permits.”

A property on St. Claude Avenue is on the agenda for “demolition by neglect,” a charge leveled by the Historic District Landmarks Commission. the property was recently cited and found guilty of code enforcement violations.

The Lens has written about this property because it was pulled from a city auction and sold to a private developer — former mayoral candidate Troy Henry — but it has remained unimproved.

The hearings will be held Wednesday in the One Stop Office, on the 7th floor of City Hall beginning at 9 a.m.

Owners have been cited for failing to install sidewalks in this Lakeview neighborhood.
