Calling an abandoned and overgrown property at 611 Orienta Avenue “beyond acceptable,” Mamaroneck Village Mayor Norm Rosenblum is working with homeowners in Orienta to rectify the “immediate danger to the health, safety and welfare of residents” in the area.
The property, with a full and filthy swimming pool, seems to be a frequent destination for teens and others who leave piles of beer bottles behind.
“I have been requesting the continued enforcement of local code violations through Village Manager’s Office, Building Dept and the Fire Inspector on an ongoing basis for at least the past 1 ½ years,” the Mayor writes in a recent note to local officials and neighbors on the street, “and I can attest that all involved are as frustrated by the legal limitations of the VOM (Village of Mamaroneck)’s departments.
Records show the property was sold February 5, 2007 for $992,000 as a Bargain and Sale Deed. The owner is not disclosed.Rosenblum says condemning the property involves a procedure “which is not and economical or timely option,” and is looking at the possibility of bringing in outside help, perhaps at the County or State level.
