Re: Code enforcement demolishes House next door

The house which was destroyed can no way be classified as urban renewal. This was a nuisance situation where taxes weren't being paid, the yard wasn't being upkept, possible drug usage, and unoccupied. Really a shame to destroy a house which was in the apparent condition of the one pictured.

You'd be amazed at what can be done in the name of urban renewal. The next town over declared that a bunch of land which never had anything built on it to be "blighted", took over the land, then turned it over to a developer who built a 900,000 sq ft shopping mall.
