The Black Rock Vacancy Initiative: An Analysis of Results and Obstacles
MetadataShow full item record
This study focuses on the seventy-seven properties that were targeted by the Black Rock Vacancy Initiative. First, forty-nine (49) of those properties were successfully resolved through the Initiative, including properties that were either resolved through Housing Court or by the City. Second, fourteen (14) properties were not resolved through the Initiative at all. This group includes active Housing Court cases, properties that Housing Court has lost jurisdiction over, and publicly owned properties that have not been either ordered demolished or occupied. Finally, fourteen (14) properties were occupied before the Initiative took effect, and therefore were not affected by the Initiative.
