HIGH SPRINGS, Fla. — After years of what seemed to be a code-less city, members of the High Springs code enforcement board met this month for the first time in four years.
Their next move? Clean up blight that spans blocks of the city’s neighborhoods.
“It’s a hazard,” resident Bill Richards says referring to the abandoned homes along Nw 187th Road.
A hazard, Richards says, that code enforcement has ignored.
“The city should have been aggressively went after to tear it down or turn it over to the city,” Richards says in front of the charred remains of a home that burned down in May. “Nothing’s been done.”
