Prince George, B.C. –  Mayor and Council for the City of Prince George have made it clear,  they are  cleaning  up the City  and  have closed  or ordered remedial action to a number of properties.  This evening, they will consider ordering  remedial action on a residential property on Norwood Street.The  bungalow, located at 1769 Norwood, is in disrepair  and needs to be  either repaired or  demolished  says the report from  Planning and Development.

The  report  to Council calls for approval of an order to the property owner to take a number of actions:

  • to repair the front and rear steps and decks, cinder block foundation, and roof, repaint the building, cut and remove all long grass and overgrown vegetation, or
  • to demolish the damaged structure;
  • to remove all debris from the demolition to an appropriate disposal site; and
  • level the site

If the property  owner  fails to  comply,   then the City will undertake the work  and recoup the costs through  taxation.


The order  would  set September 10th  as the date for  the property owner to meet the conditions of the  order.

Council has approved several  remedial actions in the past including the Lombardi Trailer Park, the Willow  Inn  and  the Connaught Inn.


Perhaps the same consideration can be made for some of the apartment buildings in town, many of those are in need of major repairs
