Notice of Pending Demolition of Imminent Hazard to Public Safety

In accordance with Section 36-105 of the Code of Virginia, as the Commissioner of Buildings for the City of Richmond I have signed the attached imminent hazard order. The building at 902 North 25th Street has deteriorated to the point that its immediate removal is necessary. As a result of this order, the building will be removed, as soon as possible, by either the City of Richmond or the property owner.

If you have questions about the unsafe conditions and the code enforcement status of this building, please contact Michelle Coward, Acting Engineer III (at MICHELLE.COWARD@RICHMONDGOV.COM or 646-6357).

Please keep in mind that the issuance of the imminent hazard order means that in accordance with City Code Section Sec. 114-930.6. (j), for those properties in City Old and Historic districts demolition can proceed without a certificate of appropriateness being issued by the Commission of Architectural Review (CAR). Also if the building is an area identified for Federal funding, in accordance with the terms of the Richmond Programmatic Agreement, the City will complete Section 106 review of the property on an emergency basis.

If you have questions about these historic preservation programs please contact T. Tyler Potterfield (at 804-646-6364 or Tyler can also add or remove people from the distribution list for future imminent notices.
