Abandoned house in Petworth
A long abandoned house around the corner from us seems to be entering a rapid state of decay lately. Does anyone know something about the place on the west side of 9th between Allison and Buchanan? Recent winds have loosened the temporary material covering the structure and it does not look like it’s in good shape. Best I can tell from property records someone bought the house and got permits issued around 2008-2010 but a few stop work orders were issued and it was declared vacant in 2012. There don’t seem to be permits up now.
Is there anything we can do to get this fixed? Anyone else have experience dealing with similar issues? It looks terrible, is in increasing danger of falling down, and attracts strange people in the alley.
