1323.14  NONCOMPLIANT BOARDED STRUCTURES A NUISANCE.
   It is hereby found that structures which have been boarded up for more than ninety days, have been the subject of a Notice to Elect pursuant to Section 1323.13 for longer than ninety days, yet still have no approved proposal, are in fact public nuisances.  This finding reflects the blighting influence of such structures, their tendency to become attractive nuisances, their tendency to harbor rats and vermin, and the accelerated decay common to such structures.  Therefore, while noncompliant owners are subject to the penalties referenced in Section 1323.99, the structures themselves are to be the subject of appropriate proceedings to mandate the abatement of the public nuisance.
