Currently our town only has provisions for residential buildings. As a former mill town, ours, like most mill towns, is rife with semi-abandoned industrial buildings. They aren't foreclosed, just not taken care of.
We are looking to push a minimum standards or minimum maintenance ordinance into place. Does your town have any such standards? If so, what are some pertinent points you made sure to put in the ordinance that other towns may not have? Did you have any issues passing such an ordinance from the community?
