City proposing a vacant building registry

A four-hour long committee meeting of the Board of Aldermen ended yesterday tabling action on a proposed vacant building registry.

The registry will require owners of vacant buildings to register their properties with the city of St. Louis. A fee schedule for owning vacant buildings is under consideration.

Apparently there is some resistence to the bill, although it has a large number of co-sponsors. The main sponsor is Alderwoman Kacie Starr Triplett, 6th ward.

Knowing how to contact owners of vacant buildings is vital. Getting those owners to either maintain or sell them is the next step.

And then finding people to buy them and do something with them is the final and most important step. Our city isn't wanting for vacant lots or buildings (and thus the reluctance of the city to go down the road of penalizing negligent owners and eventually taking possession of the property).
