N.Hill Neighbors Fill Council Chambers; Want Action on 12-Plex
It’s been vacant for six months, but those who live in the area of 1111 North 5th Street in Burlington’s North Hill area are still concerned about the 130 year old 12-plex and it’s effect on their neighborhood.
David Beckman spoke last night for a roomful of neighbors saying the former single family house is unsafe. City Planning Director Eric Tysland says the building meets one city code, but not another. Mayor Jim Davidson seemed satisfied that the matter is being looked into by staff.
Ben Brink sold the building to Kendrick Page, who’s been rehabbing it. He says anyone with concerns should contact him directly.
