Property Hit List: Bristol Tackles Blight

The owner of 1192 Burlington Avenue was ordered to clean up the exterior of the property due to junkyard like conditions.

Each month the Bristol Code Enforcement Committee meets to discuss what properties need help or demolition if needed.

Chairman Guy Morin not only tackles blighted properties but also brings the committee up to-date on efforts to combat blight in the City.

According to the April 5, 2017 Code Enforcement Committee meeting, a group inspection was conducted at 451 Divinity Street, Unit C. The complaint was received from the Police Department due to a hoarding issue.

Community Services was able to speak to the occupants and have them reorganize the apartment. No further action was taken and the occupants have since compiled.

A property located at 55 Judd Street was called in by the Police Department also due to several safety issues concerning electrical circuit violations and an illegal hook-up to propane gas.

A condemnation warning has been issued to the owner of the property to clean up the exterior of the property due to junkyard like conditions and the repair of the safety issues.

The owner of 1192 Burlington Avenue was issued a final order to clean up the exterior of the property due to junkyard like conditions.

The owner has 30 days to comply. The property is an ongoing problem.

A discussion arose on a property located at 301 Main Street as the second floor tenants continuously throws trash out the window as well as the barrels continuously being left at the curbside. No action was taken during the meeting.

127 Pine Street was addressed as the tenant of the property continuously brings debris onto the property. The property has been cleaned-up per a code enforcement action.

Public Works was concerned on the condition of the porches at 42-44 Chestnut Street. Upon inspection an order was issued for the removal of debris and an immediate re-inspection would be set up on the condition of the porches.

Community Services discussed the relocation of the tenants at 143 Divinity Street. Both tenants have been successfully relocated and the condemnation order has not been lifted until the owner complies.
