Support: Fines for Vacants

Wilmington Neighborhoods Coalition supported recent changes to code enforcement from criminal to civil ONLY for unoccupied blighted structures that are not kept clean, secure, and watertight. Download the legislation here. This has given L&I new tools to address the properties that cause the most harm to communities and is focused on the type of property owners have historically been least likely to respond to existing methods of Code Enforcement.
