(A)   Unsupervised properties have a negative impact on surrounding properties and neighborhoods. Owners of such properties should be held accountable for the condition of same, because properties which are not maintained constitute a hazard to the public health, safety, and welfare, create blight and nuisances, and lower property values and neighborhood integrity.
   (B)   It is the purpose and intent of the city, through the adoption of this subchapter, to establish a non-owner occupied property registry and unoccupied property registry as a mechanism to protect residential neighborhoods and other areas from becoming blighted through the lack of adequate maintenance and security of such properties.
