Community Input on Vacant Properties

May 29, 2012 at 2:48 pm 3 comments

As you will recall,  Mayor Buttigieg established the Vacant & Abandoned Housing Task Force in February. Now is your chance to speak to this group, as they want to gather community input on Thursday, May 31. The meeting will be held at Muessel Primary Center (1021 Blaine St) from 5:30 to 7:30pm.

What a great opportunity to collaborate with this task force to find solutions to some of the problems in South Bend. Plan to attend and tell your neighbors! If you cannot attend, post ideas here that we can share at this meeting.

    Does it make sense to decrease the supply to help keep up the price of well-maintained properties? Could blocks split the demolition cost to turn a parcel into a community garden or park? I don’t know the costs involved.
    I’d like to see more proactive work by the city to either help improve, refurbish, fine, or condemn/demolish.

    Here’s an example of taking vacant properties and making a big investment in the community, education, and teachers.
