This house continues to be a problem. I recently reported it for grass which has grown 3-feet high. The county is finally getting involved over the grass.
The house at 12702 Flack Street has been vacant for more than one year. A notice posted in the front window states that the property is owned by Chase Home Finance LLC. Phone # 877.790.1035 (LPS Field Svcs 440.633.4100). The grass gets cut infrequently, so the property looks shabby. There is trash, piles of yard debris, and standing water in the back yard. All of these are attractions to rats. Rats have been observed by neighbors. In addition, there was break in, which was reported to police, sometime in late Jan or February. The bank was alerted to the break in -- their response was to pull the broken window closed (without repairing the glass) and changing the locks -- the broken window is on the left side of the house. This kind of neglect is unacceptable. Our hope is that the property (the house seems to be in good shape) be cleaned up and sold quickly. A vacant house is a magnet to vermin and vagarants. Our neighborhood does not need either.

Not one thing has been done about this house. It still stands burned through the roof and trash is collecting in the yard.
About 6 months ago, the house at 12825 Valleywood Drive burned. It is a total loss and is posted as condemned. Neighbors believe a bank owns the property. It is time to get this eyesore cleaned up. The house will need to be razed -- which is a start. An empty lot which a mowed lawn is better than a burned out shell. The front door of the house is now sitting open. The property is a mess. It is an open invitation to rats and more. There may be standing water in the basement which will become a mosquito farm very quickly. Let's get this cleaned up.

On the Matthew Henson trail, along the east side of Connecticut Avenue, before you enter the underpass under Connecticut Avenue, there is a large concrete abutment that is COVERED in gang graffiti. Both on the surface, and along the side facing the creek. This used to be repainted to remove it, but it hasn't been painting in 2 years and it only encouraging more gang graffiti "tagging." it needs to be painted and repainted as long as the gangs keep tagging it.

Vandalism and gang graffiti has apparently been on this fence, which faces an elementary school, for many months. Clearly, this is in an attempt to indoctrinate young children into gangs. This image is just a small sample; the graffiti covers the length of the fence. Please clean this.
