Riverside considers adding new address to blight list

— RIVERSIDE – Borough council members and Riverside’s zoning officer may be adding another address to their list of local blighted properties.

Zoning officer Jackie Hart noted to the council in her February report that 413 Avenue F could be in violation of zoning ordinances and may be a candidate for the list.

Borough secretary Deb Bausch noted that 413 Avenue F is overgrown and not taken care of. “The property needs some tender, loving care,” she said.

Hart and the borough council are currently discussing the possibility of adding it.

Another property, 1112 Avenue F, may soon be removed from the list.

Rear exterior work still needs to be completed on the building. The owner has advised Hart that will be taken care of as soon as the winter weather breaks.

“They have not completed what is required, but they have been taking care of it in a very timely manner. There was quite extensive work that needed to be done,” Hart said.
