Question from a reader

The following question was emailed to me. Can anyone point the reader in the right direction?

“How does one learn about what is happening with closed/abandoned stores and buildings, vis-a-vis development?

For example, i live a little north-west of petworth, at colorado and 16th, and across from our one restaurant, colorado kitchen, is a huge boarded up building that had numerous apartments and several stores.

I was just wonder whether someone is going to do something with it or if it is just going to sit there as a magnet for graffiti and trash?”
