Neighbours Challenge Council on Derelict House

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: About 30 northside residents stormed city hall Monday in a last ditch effort to get council's attention. A majority of the neighbourhood signed a petition council to do something about an empty building in their area, which they say is dangerous.

"We've waited now for four years and the house has reached a situation where it's a danger to the community and we now feel it's time to act," said Kelly Flynn, who spoke for the group.

Council told Flynn they're working on a new bylaw that will give them power to demolish unsightly properties. He said it can't happen soon enough.

"The roof is falling in, the siding is falling off. The children have access to the building and as children will they're playing in it," said Flynn. "It's dangerous. In fact, I would say it's so dangerous that it's not even safe for a drug house."

Aldermen will vote on the "unsightly properties" bylaw in November. The neighbourhood group says they want the empty house fenced in or flattened by the end of 2011.
