Vacant Property Registration Ordinance (VPRO)

The purpose of this article is to reduce blight by encouraging property owners to sell, lease or occupy vacant structures; to ensure that owners of vacant properties are known to the City and other interested parties and can be reached if necessary; to ensure that owners of vacant properties are aware of the obligations of ownership under relevant codes and regulations; and to ensure that owners meet minimum standards of maintenance of vacant properties. 

This applies to non-residential and mixed-use buildings only.
