2-159-010  Legislative findings.
   Pursuant to its duty to protect the public health, safety and welfare, the city has acquired title to numerous parcels of vacant real property at various locations throughout the city. Because many of these parcels are of minimal value, yet are costly for the city to clean up and maintain, it is in the city's best interest to convey certain of these parcels to the adjacent residential property owners so that they can be beautified or otherwise maintained. The conveyance of these parcels to adjacent residential property owners will return the parcels to the tax rolls and enhance the quality of life in the city's neighborhoods. For these reasons, it is the city's intention to establish by this ordinance a program, known as the adjacent neighbors land acquisition program (“A.N.L.A.P.”), to dispose of certain city-owned parcels of vacant real property.
