City working to clean blighted properties

10/12/2009 6:42 AM by

The RTD is reporting that the city is pushing to get caught up on a back-log of cleaning neglected properties across the city, and cites an example on Chimborazo Boulevard:

A new, wooden fence concealed an ugly truth at 506 Chimborazo Blvd. in Richmond’s East End. Mosquito-infested brush, broken glass and construction debris were strewn in large piles across the yard behind the vacant, two-story house. Michael Evins, a grounds division manager in the Department of Public Works, paused in his vehicle off a narrow alley and said the yard appeared to be a dumpsite for much of the neighborhood.
