In January of this year I attended along with Busters House Blog the Demolition Board of Appeals hearing- we were rather surprised at the condition of one of those being appealed

“As Seen In Lorain: 3620 Clifton Avenue and the second chance

In yesterday’s Morning Journal, there was an article about the decision made by the Demolition Board of Appeals to add 16 more houses to the demolition list. In that article, it was mentioned that the owners of one of the houses on the demolition list were given a second chance to make repairs. Even though it was noted by Demolition Board member, 5th ward Councilman, and neighborhood resident Eddie Edwards that “Before the sale, the house sat empty for about five years, with its doors and windows open and generally falling apart…” and “The new owners also waited a year before taking action to repair it…” AND the Board went out to see this house for themselves AND took the Fire Chief with them AND talked to the unhappy neighbors – the owners have $17,000 and a plan and that was enough for the Board to grant them a second chance.

LOCAR Board President Chad Schneider. “It needs a lot of attention.”

Many members will oppose the legislation in its current form, Schneider said. The new rules would slow down real estate transactions and make a complicated process even more complicated

we wouldn’t be having to face the ” complicated appeals for demolition” because the property would not make a demolition list in the first place .

Busters House revisited the Clifton House this week and the finding can be found here on Lisa’s Blog

Whatever happened to 3620 Clifton Avenue?

“How long does the City have to let this go on? Are the owners now caught up in the cycle of permit perpetuity? As long as there’s a permit in the window, the City will continue to watch from the sidewalk.”

    There are very few of us who would want to pay extra for something that should have been going on along. This type of ordinance is very common in most cities with urban areas. But, as you know, we have “allowed” this to happen to ourselves in Lorain. I’m also happy to see the CDBG and other grant funds will be used to raise this city to the level it should have been twenty years ago!
