Maintenance of Vacant Properties Open House
Wednesday, April 3
Town Hall, 1225 Trafalgar Road
The town is conducting a review of its property maintenance regulations through a new Maintenance of Vacant Properties By-law. We are seeking public input on what those regulations should look like. The information received will be used to formulate a recommendation to the Community Services Committee (CSC) on June 17, 2019. The decision of the CSC will be forwarded to Council on June 24, 2019.
Vacant and unoccupied buildings that are not maintained can become infested with pests, attract trespassers, and have negative impacts on property values. Although the town’s Property Standards By-law addresses some of the issues that vacant properties present, other issues such as ensuring buildings are regularly inspected and have sufficient insurance need to be addressed.
