What is the process for determining demolition by neglect?
Anyone in the community can initiate an investigation of a potential demolition by neglect condition by petition to the Planning Director. The staff notifies the property owner of the pending investigation and gathers information regarding the structure’s condition. One or more public meetings are scheduled to gather evidence of the building’s condition. The Planning Director determines whether a condition of demolition by neglect has been found. If the property owner wishes to appeal the Planning Director’s decision, the appeal is made to the Historic Preservation Commission.
