Problem properties, whether occupied or abandoned, pose serious risks to the well-being and safety of residents and the broader community. They frequently have a history of persistent violations, including issues related to permits, safety codes, public health, and criminal activities.
The ECDC recognizes these challenges and has taken proactive steps to address them through its Project 10 initiative. This initiative focuses on acquiring and revitalizing derelict properties. By demolishing these problem properties and building new homes for families, the ECDC is not only improving housing conditions but also enhancing the overall safety and vitality of the neighbourhoods.
To report a problem property, you can contact the city by calling 311.
