In 2011, the City Council approved a Vacant Building Registration program for the City of Richfield.
One of the effects of the economic recession has been an increase in the number of vacant buildings. Vacant buildings have adverse effects on the livability of the community, especially when they are not properly managed or maintained.
The ordinance also regulates vacant buildings by requiring them to be registered and by requiring the persons responsible for the buildings to provide the City with a plan and timetable to return the building to occupancy and use and to correct code violations or nuisances, or demolish the building.
For more information on the vacant building guidelines you may reference Section 925 of the Richfield City Code.
