A recent article discusses one community’s initiatives to “injecting new life into narrow, vacant lots brought about by blighted-structures removal”.
Several approaches are referenced, including;
- the topic must remain a regular item on council meeting agendas.
- arranging for construction professionals to present their thoughts on how the city might best proceed
- couple of meetings for city residents to express their opinions and, even, their concerns
- appointment of a couple of city residents to serve as liaisons between the council and the general community
- holding a builders’ fair
- tackling the question and existing uncertainty about whether building homes on narrow lots can be a profitable venture
- recruiting builders to “rehab” blighted homes for which rehabilitation remains a possible option because of their condition
