CDD seeks public input to crackdown on eyesores

Call for community to voice opinions on nuisance ordinance

The Community Development Department (CDD) wants feedback from residents and commercial property owners about ways the county code can be made clearer regarding compliance and enforcement of yard and property maintenance and safety issues on private and commercial property.
Two public meetings will be held and the information will help the county draft a nuisance ordinance.
The first meeting was Thursday at Fuller Lodge and a second meeting will be 5:30 p.m. Sept. 23 at White Rock Town Hall.
“At the county council’s last strategic planning meeting about 10 months ago, they asked us to come up with standards for non-residential property,” CDD Director Rick Bohn said. “We don’t really have anything in the code that addresses property standards for buildings.”
Bohn’s department began working on the issue and in March reported its preliminary findings to council. The CDD was asked to continue the project, expanding it to include property maintenance and storage of vehicles on residential property.
The county’s legal department has wanted to revamp the ordinance so the CDD began working with new County Attorney Randy Autio. Bohn intends to present a draft nuisance ordinance to council Oct. 19.
