What are the laws of having a home condemned with 4 adults living in it & never doing any repairs to it within the last twenty plus yrs, furniture in the front yard for months,never cutting their grass, vines growing from outside of their house & through the windows & rotten frame wood which is ALL of their exterior frame of their house. It's a NUISANCE, and causing all of the neighbors properties to deppreciate, which is NOT FAIR.The city needs to write a citation to these owners to take responsibility of their mess or CONDEMN it. Its located in the EAST MARION area. I don't even have to give the street address , everyone should be able to locate it from this description .

Our local leaders are AFRAID of the owner. They will not do anything because of who he is.

That is just ONE problem I have with the current (oh, last 20 year) administration in Marion.

They keep voting in the SAME old dogs.

Its the gray house close to Marion Manufacturing, with broken windows & with cardboard replacing the windows & trade lot trash in front of their house.They should be ashamed & they're having to go to take showers at shelter on State street.

Strong zoning laws would protect the whole county from this situation and would force public officials to take control and not leave it up to every individual to sue or complain, until something gets done. If ever !! This county will sit and die in its own waste if left alone. Surveys show that the overwhelming percentage of citizens favor zoning, but public officials shy away from the issue, because of the fanatical and highly vocal minority of trash mongers. The world is shrinking and we can no longer tolerate nasty neighbors who are costing us our property value.

Except for isolated examples you showcase, I've seen no evidence this county is drowning in it's own waste. You imply that McDowell residents cannot be trusted to clean up after themselves and we need Big Nanny to show us the way - by force if necessary. You also seem to value property more than people. Property cannot vote and one way or another, most trash gets cleaned up eventually. Punishing everyone for the sins of a few is the kind of rubbish anti-gun people preach. Another layer of bureaucracy is the last thing people of this county need.

I do value property more than NASTY, UNCARING and Lazy people. All of us know what is exceptable care of property and when someone ignores that responsibility action needs to be taken. Don't believe in gun control as long as people are responsible owners, just like property. Its not another layer of government. We already are paying for these protections.

"fyi" Apparently you know SO much about my mother that you can say all this. Do you happen to live down Baldwin Avenue? My mom is concerned for mine and my brother and the other childrens safety, around here. With these druggy dumb-ass people living around here always raising hell, I'm sure you would feel obligated to call the police a few times a day when these idiots start a bunch of bullshit, yelling and screaming. When we are trying to sleep at night and these dumb-asses are screaming and hollering and we just happen to get up and look out the window to make sure no one is fighting or , call us paranoid, has a gun out; we can hear some of the bullshit coming out of their mouths and thats when we all the police. Apparently we are the only people down here who call the police cause some of the other people are friends, most of them drug dealers.. not all but most.
About the run-down house.. It should be condemned because, frankly.. Look. At. It. It's slanting to the side, there are HOLES in the bottom of the house;at the part closest to our house. We have to send emails, letters, ect, to the city telling them that they will NOT cut there grass. One day, god-forbid, those people are going to be walking through their house and they are going to fall right through their floor. It's terrible and I almost feel sorry for them, ALMOST. They can control how their house looks, they can keep it up. Living off disablilty and old furniture picked-up off the side of the road; sold to get cash.. Get a job. You may not be 'all there' as some people have told me.. but you can still try.
And you don't like the fact she's telling people where the sexoffenders are? Or are you saying you'd rather Shorty still be molesting his niece? Enough said.
"If you were smart" Is that a threat?
Apparently YOU hate us too. Why haven't you come and done what they haven't. I may not respect them, but I know they aren't dumb enough to come over here and start throwing punches and shooting guns at us cause they know the cops will be on them before they can re-think what they were doing. If you were smart you wouldn't have started on here. You just showed how stupid you are with those last few sentences.. "so no cute" FAIL. How old are you? Jeez, I'm almost 14 and I have better grammar/ spelling than you. And putting her name out like that.. NICE ONE! DUMB-FUCK. And yes I know I'm confirming her name.. I don't care. You shouldn't have put it out in the first place.

Most of the homes around here are kept up, for the most part. In this section... On Baldwin, It's probably the only house that's THAT run down.

Taylor, I'm not going to argue with you because you are child even tho you seem to curse like a sailor. Way to go Mom. Btw, there's a difference in happening to look out the window and spying on people.

I don't like being treated like a child.. Most people who know me know that. I make a point to make sure people know that. I cuss like a sailor. Damn right. My mom left the house right before I wrote my reply. You can blame the schools. Kids these days. And PLEASE! DO argue. I'm DYING to know what you have to say cause you just know so much.. And again (Sorry, I'm a nit-picker) you miss-spelled 'though'.
And about spying and looking out the window.. You ever felt THREATED? Like you were in danger? That's how WE feel when we see our neighbors (Ashley, Josh, ect) Walking in front of our house. We don't know what they are going to do. Hell, Ashley came over one time and threatened my mother. So, tell me we don't have reason to not be concerned. With children, you can't be to careful. Apparently, YOU and our neighbors (maybe your one of them? I dunno; Don't wanna make false accusations.)can't see this, Which is honestly SAD. It's sad that I have to tell you this.. Me being one of the children.-.-

The topic was House in poor condition, what does it take to condemn, not Shannon Buchanan having to call the law to stop the domestic violence that happens every week with Ashley in the EM area . We know who this is, just go ahead and make a bigger fool of yourself.
Ms Buchanan has lived there 40 years in that area is going down hill because of people like you & Ashley . MAybe if the Hughes/ Pritchards will quiten down the verbal abuse that occurs everyday that law will not bother you/them
Ms Buchanan is a good parent & loves kids & she is very ashamed of her neighbors because they are LOW LIFES that they choice to be & with criminal records on NC DOC their names appear & that will go against their record for the rest of thei lives.
God please help them, especially for the childrens sake. Ashley doesn't need to be around any kids for several reasons, verbal abuse, GD this MF that she cusses in every breath & don't have respect for herself & other people. She needs MAJOR counseling. I care for the elderly people in the EM area & want to help them, but are scared because of the drug dealers in the area. We know who they are. Hopefully the authorities will catch them soon, so all of the elderly people & children will live in peace & quit living in fear of these low life slime balls & sex offenders.
