Description

About 10 years ago we tried to get LCI to deal with the abandoned ruin next to 79 Winchester. They said it was not in danger of collapse, so they couldn't do anything.
The roof has now been collapsed for several years, so why can't the city require the owners to either repair it, or take it over itself and demolish it? We have never understood why it takes New Haven decades to follow up on this kind of blight, and would love an answer to help us understand.

also asked...
Q. Is the problem blight (trash, etc) outside, or is it a problem with the building (illegal use, housing code violation, etc)?
A. Building Problem
