Notice – Palmdale Closes Door on Local Nuisance to Neighborhood

Posted on the 16 January 2014 by Jim Winburn @civicbeebuzz

The following is a public safety news release from Palmdale city officials:

The City of Palmdale obtained a preliminary injunction in LA County Superior Court today (Thursday, Jan. 16) to close down and board up for a period of one year a home located at 1647 East Ave. Q-6 which had been the location of at least 36 drug related arrests, one arrest for an assault with a deadly weapon, and one arrest of a convicted felon possessing ammunition at the property since January 2011.

The City cited Health and Safety code 11570 which requires “every building or place used for the purpose of unlawfully selling, serving storing, keeping, manufacturing, or given away any control substance … or place wherein or upon which those acts take place, is a nuisance which shall be enjoined, abated, and prevented and for which damages may be recovered, whether it is a public or private nuisance.”

“This property had been a nuisance to the surrounding neighborhood for too long,” said Palmdale Assistant Attorney Noel Doran. “I’m pleased that the court ordered the closure of the property for a year. The removal of this problem from the community will allow an otherwise vibrant neighborhood to thrive. The City Council has made neighborhood improvement a focus for 2014 and city staff has really embraced that mandate. While staff will continue to work hard on neighborhood issues, we really need the citizens to step forward and help us identify the areas that need improvement. I’d ask any citizen that is aware of a problem in their neighborhood to contact our Neighborhood Preservation Department.”

“We’re going into 2014 with a renewed focus on improving our neighborhood through our code enforcement,” said Palmdale Mayor Jim Ledford. “We pride ourselves on being a place to call home, and to make Palmdale even safe for schoolchildren, families and seniors, we need to eradicate illegal drug houses that do nothing but destroy communities. There is no room here in Palmdale for this.”
