This property is the subject of a foreclosure case from 2013 that was recently reopened.  There have been no changes made to this property other than the tree that is now growing in the basement and sprouting out one of the windows.  Hopefully this property can be torn down or rehabbed, as it’s an eyesore on an otherwise decent block.

The last permit on this house expired in 2008. You can see the original post from 2010 here.

(Kudos to Citibank for at least making sure the ownership info is correct after taking over the home in 2012, as many banks have not bothered to do so after foreclosing on a house.)

Sultan of Blight: 110 Burnett Street

One of the best things about doing this project is the way I get to watch neighbors take charge of their neighborhood — or at least their block.  This gem was submitted by a South Baltimore neighbor who writes:

Recently, the city sent residents of this hidden street a notice of potential fines if the sidewalk in front of their property was not fixed to their standards. One neighbor who did not obey received a $4,000 fine. It’s ridiculous that the city has time to send notices and fines for sidewalk conditions, but can’t send a slum lord a notice or fine about his or her rat-infested property.

Dear Reader, I couldn’t agree more.  Fining residents $4000 for having a sidewalk in disrepair, when a property owner is allowed to leave a property in disrepair — one they’ve owned since 1998.

The owner of this property also owns Pizza Time in Morrell Park — what is it with owners of pizza joints and slum property??  The company charter has been forfeited.
