UNIVERSITY HEIGHTS, Ohio -- They may be considered nuisances now, but there's still hope for them.
That is the feeling among city leaders about two homes that, at Tuesday's City Council meeting, were officially declared nuisancesThe good news, Mayor Michael Dylan Brennan said, is that four homes that were on their way to also being declared nuisances have been taken off that list because of city scrutiny.
The vacated homes that council did vote to declare nuisances are located at 3654 Raymont Blvd., and, coincidentally, one that is almost directly across the street, at 3673 Washington Blvd.
Brennan and Building Commissioner James McReynolds said the step of declaring a home a nuisance is one that can, in some cases, ultimately lead to it becoming rehabilitated.
"Nobody wants to see homes torn down," Brennan said, "but something must be done.
"We value our housing stockThis is all about making the community sustainable."
While not stating their addresses, McReynolds and Community Development Coordinator Patrick Grogan-Myers told council Tuesday that four other homes could have been on the list, but that once their owners were informed that the city was proceeding with plans to have them declared nuisances, a step toward eventual demolition, the owners took action and began to make necessary repairs and violation
