Vacant property

The Village considers buildings to be vacant if they remain boarded or in a state of deterioration for more than six months and/or no longer have a current property listing contract. As such, they are detrimental to public health and safety, contribute to the decrease in value of surrounding properties, precipitate disinvestment by neighboring owners, provide a location for criminal activity and undermine the aesthetic character of the neighborhood and the Village.


It is the obligation of the owner of a vacant property, per Village ordinance, to register the property and to implement a maintenance plan. The form below must be filled out and a $200 application fee paid.
