1323.01  PURPOSE.
   This Chapter is adopted to establish a program for identifying and registering vacant commercial, industrial and institutional buildings within the City that may present a fire hazard, that may provide temporary occupancy by transients, that may detract from private and/or public efforts to rehabilitate or maintain surrounding buildings, and that may present a hazard to the health, safety and welfare of the public. Through a registration, inspection, and monitoring process, vacant commercial, industrial and institutional buildings will be kept weather tight and secure from trespassers, will provide safe entry to police officers and firefighters in times of emergency, will not impede private and/or public efforts to rehabilitate or maintain surrounding buildings, and will not otherwise present a public hazard so that the health, safety and welfare of the public is served by these regulations.
