Blight Department

You are here

The mission of the ordinance drafting sub-group has been to generate and ordinance for Branford, similar to most other towns/cities, that would fill an administrative void by establishing protections other ordinances and regulations do not provide.
Understanding that the causes of blight can be complicated, the drafting committee recognized that flexibility is desirable in addressing this issue. The primary economic focus is for the town to prevent a reduction of property values as a result of neighboring blight while keeping the cost minimal.
