Council Approves Demolition of West Hyattsville House
Dilapidated Jamestown Road house soon to be no more.
One blighted house in West Hyattsville will soon be nothing but a memory. Last night, the Hyattsville City Council approved a $14,570 contract with American Enterprises, Inc. to demolish an abandoned home at 2805 Jamestown Road.
The 792 square foot house is currently dilapidated and overgrown with vegetation. The house is a victim of foreclosure and is currently owned by the bank.
In mid August, the city received a court order authorizing the demolition and razing of the building.
In the long term, the demolition won't end up costing the city any money. The city will use a lien to recoup the cost of the demolition when the property is eventually sold.
