Building and Safety - Vacant Building Abatement

Metadata Updated: March 8, 2024

The Contract Nuisance Abatement Division abates open, vacant, abandoned, and vandalized buildings, under a process known as Vacant Building Abatement (VBA). The VBA process includes declaring these properties a “Nuisance” and/or “Hazard” after a public hearing. When property owners fail to comply with orders requiring them to clean, secure, rehabilitate or demolish these buildings, VBA steps in and performs the physical abatement work of cleaning, securing, and if necessary, demolishing a building by way of an annually awarded contract to various private contractors
