We the undersigned residents, businesses, and concerned parties seek the immediate correction of hazardous conditions and long-term CONDEMNATION of the multi-unit apartment building located at 13000 Buckeye Road. We appeal to the enforcement authorities of the City of Cleveland and the judicial authority of the Cleveland Municipal Housing Court to vigorously prosecute the case against GIG 6, LLC, owner of 13000 Buckeye Road.

Since its condemnation in 2013, 13000 Buckeye Road has had four different individual or corporate owners. Every owner has received violation notices. However, only once has an owner been found guilty of failing to act responsibly when Green Apple Supplies was fined $25,000. When heavy pieces of masonry began falling from the building in February 2019 additional orders were issued. It is nearly 15 months since the property was cited; yet, in June 2020 no party has been ordered to abate the hazard. Construction fencing blocks off the sidewalks, forcing pedestrians, frequently children, to walk in the street or dangerously close to the falling debris.

This dangerous blight cannot continue to be permitted to threaten the safety of the community and drain the vitality out of this important commercial center. All around 13000 Buckeye properties are new or substantially improved. They are vibrant, safe, and well maintained. For seven years this condemned property has been a determent to the community. Out of respect for the Buckeye community and the investment of other property owners, we respectfully urge all necessary action be taken, now.
