Vacant Properties—Nuisance or Serious Threat?

Have you noticed any empty or underutilized homes or businesses in Irish Hill? Does it bother you to see property that is not receiving any love despite so much potential? The Irish Hill Neighborhood Association (IHNA) is on a mission to identify threatened properties in the neighborhood and promote their reuse as owned and/or occupied homes and businesses. Threatened properties are defined as underused, empty, abandoned, in disrepair or a public nuisance.


As a first step, we’d like to identify which properties are threatened and why. We hope to continue with developing a website to promote their repair as well as promote Irish Hill as a great place to live and work. We want to feature some great examples of remodels in the area, properties for sale, a blog for neighbors to contribute their remodeling advice, links to resources, etc.


If you know of properties on your block that are abandoned or unoccupied or if you would like to get more involved in the solution, email us at
