SEQ., <br />RELATIVE TO 1900 EDGEW ATER AVENUE <br /> <br />WHEREAS, the structure (the "Building") on 1900 Edgewater Avenue, Arden Hills (the <br />"Property"), was extensively damaged by fire on or about September 15, 1993; and <br /> <br />WHEREAS, the City has unsuccessfully attempted to have the owner of the Building either <br />rebuild or remove the Building; and <br /> <br />WHEREAS, over three years have passed since the fire and the Building has not been rebuilt or <br />removed; and <br /> <br />WHEREAS, the Building has deteriorated to the point where it is determined that the Building, <br />because of inadequate maintenance, dilapidation, physical damage, unsanitary conditions, and/or <br />abandonment, constitutes a fire hazard or hazard to the public safety or health for the reasons, <br />among others, set forth in the attached Order Finding Hazardous Building Nuisance. <br /> <br />WHEREAS, among the efforts made by the City to abate the conditions at the Property include, <br />but are not necessarily limited to, providing notice, under the Uniform Code For the Abatement <br />of Dangerous Buildings, to the owner of the Property (the "Property Owner") on January 9,1996 <br />to abate the conditions within 180 days, sending a similar notice to the owner of the Property and <br />first mortgage holder on June 17, 1996, and offering to purchase the Property from the Property <br />Owner at fair market value within the last month, to which offer the Property Owner did not even <br />respond. <br /> <br />WHEREAS, the City has proceeded in good faith to resolve the matter, but, because ofthe lack <br />of any meaningful effort by the Property Owner to abate the conditions or resolve the matter, the <br />City now finds that in the interest of the public, it is required to act to abate the conditions <br />pursuant to Minnesota Statute Section 463.15 et. seq. (the "hazardous Building Statute"). <br /> <br />WHEREAS, given the length of time since the fire and the numerous orders and opportunity to <br />abate the conditions, a reasonable time within which the Property Owner to complete the <br />abatement of the conditions is forty-five (45) days from the date of service of the attached Order <br />on the Property Owner and any mortgage lien holder. <br />
