Have people already received their deeds? This is not the first, but one of many I've seen over the past few weeks and thought it deserved some attention.

Here's a link.

Curious, you have the auction results from last year, right? How many of those properties are already behind on their taxes and how many have been successfully rehabilitated?

I'm pretty sure Woodbridge does not enjoy the same historic protections as other historic neighborhoods in the city. I don't recall the specifics, but do remember there was a difference in the way Woodbridge was listed whether it was deemed historic by the state and not the feds or the other way around. Some of the old timers from the WCDC or from the remnants of the WNDC should be able to fill in the blanks.

Not saying it's too hard, just pointing out an issue with UST's. I've had experience with them, they aren't fun.

I'm all for that, but a commercial property such as this will surely require a PhaseI environmental study verifying the presence of UST's followed by a potential PhaseII soil sampling to check if they have leaked. These are serious concerns, meaning serious money.

3 blocks past Slows? Please, Slows was 3 blocks past the point of no return 6 years ago. That's not the true impediment, the UST's could be.
