Hawthorne resident Mike Klick--who sits on the Hawthorne Housing Committee with me--keeps close track of what's happening in his quadrant of the neighborhood. The house at 2416 4th St. N. has been an area of concern, and this house was mentioned in a previous blog post, click here.
Now comes word from....
...a policy aide in the Third Ward of a new twist with the property. Here's the email Cheyenne Erickson sent to Mike Klick:
PPU informed me that the property was recently purchased by a new owner and that the demo orders were sent while the property was in foreclosure to the bank (the bank was attempting to sell it during this time). A new restoration agreement was signed with the new owner and is due in August 2010. If the owner fails to complete the agreement, it may result in financial penalties or demolition of the structure.
Please let me know if you have any more questions.

Why does my gut say, "Oh, great, I bet it's another speculator or slumlord?" Because, believe me, if it was a home owner, we'd know about it and somebody would probably bring them a pie.
I hope things turn out well, not badly, but I'm sure we can depend on Mike Klick to know what's happening and bring word to the Housing Committee.
