  • 3113 E. Broad Street Richmond, VA - Church Hill
    3113 . Broad Street continues to be a nuisance to the neighborhood. two months ago the owner had the front decking ripped up and then put up a piece of plywood with a no trespassing sign. This is completely ugly. the falling apart deck looked better. This appears to be an attempt by the owner to make the city think they are doing something with this house. this house has been vacant and boarded up for at least 10 years. can the city not do any thing about this house. There are plenty of people who would love to buy and do something with this house. picture attached.

  • 711 Chimborazo Blvd Richmond, Virginia - Chimborazo
    Property appears to be zoned R-6, contains non-conforming four-plex property, and has been vacant for at least five years. Current owners do not appear to have filed for/appealed to the BZA for a restoration of the nonconforming use rights so that they may rebuild the property as a four unit building, despite the fact that it is not zoned as such. Neighbors and Civic Association have concerns which they would like the property owner to address prior to any renovation. Work being performed appears to exceed scope of permits (only electrical permits appear to have been approved). Approved electric permits list zoning as R2B, meaning they may have been improperly approved or fraudulently obtained.
