Unwanted blight

Central Falls officials are preparing to take escalating measures against the owners of this home at 769 Lonsdale Ave.

CENTRAL FALLS – At 769 Lonsdale Ave., diagonally across from the International Meat Market, a dilapidated old home directly abuts the sidewalk, its sagging structure suffering the effects of years of neglect.

Going back to 2017, the home on a nearly 8,000-square-foot lot has received several violations, including exterior ones for such infractions as overgrown grass and unregistered vehicles, improper gas ventilation, which was corrected, and a notice of vacancy/no reply.

Wish the Town of Lincoln would be pro-active and put together a Nuisance Property Task Force. there is a property at the corner of Main St & Central St Manville that actually has building permits in a window but nothing has been done on the property in the 15 years I've lived in the neighbor hood.

Welcome to the discussion.

We’ve recently revised our comment policy to help us be more consistent and to be in keeping with our goal to promote a better community conversation. If a comment is deleted, rather than complain about it, simply try again by modifying the verbiage.

Comments that will be deleted include:
  • Those that include threatening, derogatory, obscene, vulgar, lewd, racist, sexist or sexually-oriented language. This includes any name-calling/nicknames of people both on the local and national level.
  • Those with accusations or allegations that can’t be proven, or that try to build a negative narrative about one person or entity over time through a clearly coordinated campaign. If you believe the backstory really needs to be shared, send us a letter to the editor or a story pitch with your name and contact information.
  • Those with outright lies or falsehoods.
Please use the 'Report' link on each comment to let us know if you believe a comment was allowed in error.

What we at The Breeze would truly like to see are comments that add history and context to a story or that use criticism constructively.
