§ 727-13. Legislative Determination and Adoption of Blight Abatement Plan  


Latest version.
  • No blight abatement plan shall be effective until an ordinance has been adopted by council and notice of the blight abatement plan and ordinance has been provided to the owner of record. Upon completion of the hearing as set forth in § 727-11, council shall at the same or a subsequent meeting make findings and adopt an ordinance, as appropriate, as to:

    (1) Whether or not the property is a blighted property; and

    (2) Whether or not the blighted property in its existing state poses a threat to the public health, safety or welfare; and

    (3) Whether or not it is necessary to acquire the property in order to eliminate blight, prevent recurrence of blight and further the purposes of this chapter.

    Should council determine that the property is a blighted property that, in its existing state, poses a threat to the public health, safety or welfare but that it is not necessary to acquire the property in order to eliminate blight, prevent recurrence of blight and further the purposes of this chapter, it may direct the city manager to take other appropriate action.
