I watched the city counsel meeting recently and some people were asking about these abandoned houses,but the city said they dont want to do any thing with them? Why not rent the abondoned building on nw blvd for example ,
there is a guy storing cars in it.i would like to keep my buisiness in operation but cant without a shop ,they could rent one to me i could fix it up,the neighbors would be happy city makes money on a property thats a pimple on the city everyone wins!
just a thought they say they are trying to keep and make jobs?
also the building on nw blvd is just an example ill take anything ,I can run my buisineses from any were im not picky

I'm with you! That's almost my idea exactly. I want one of those houses - I need the space for my "large" family. But I dont have the money to buy with all the mumbo-jumbo required up front. If they dont want them, give them away, give larger incentives/tax breaks to buy or let me rent. We can afford a monthly payment, rent-to-own or mortgage and we can afford to fix it up over time. They say they are giving incentives thru HAPPEN and what not, but its a ton of red tape and it still costs a lot of $$$ and the legalities associated with home ownership. They tore down Octave Thanet's house?! Thats a piece of Davenport history bulldozed away. I'll take any of them, I'm not picky either.
