Over the last few weeks, the Danbury Unified Neighborhood Inspection Team has been able to close out a dozen blight cases on properties where written orders had been issued. Many were issued for exterior garbage. UNIT Director Shawn Stillman says the most significant was an Oakland Avenue Ext. property. He says tenants continued to disregard warnings, creating an eyesore with inoperable and unregistered vehicles kept on the property. There were also car parts, scrap metal and excessive wood along the dead end street. The property owner ended up evicting a tenant, delaying the clean up process. Nearly four months later, the property is now as clean, and the neighbors have taken notice.
