A little after 2pm on Thursday, November 2nd, a Notice of Abatement was attached to the abandoned building at Ebers and Greene streets by the City of San Diego.

Addressed to Nelco Properties, LLC, it notified the owner at 2269 Ebers that representatives of the City’s Code Enforcement Division and the Development Services Department had inspected the property on October 17th and had found it to be a vacate building with graffiti and lots of trash. The inspectors found enough threats on the property to the public ‘s health and safety that they declared it to be a public nuisance pursuit to a number of Municipal and State codes.

The Notice requires “immediate actions” and gives Nelco Properties until November 17th to clean up the site and secure all the openings on the building.

This action by the City was prompted in large part by numerous complaints by local neighbors, pressure on Councilwoman’s Zapf’s office by citizens and most recently, a letter from the OB Planning Board chair demanding the site to be declared a public nuisance and dealt with.

The Notice was dated November 2, 2017 and addressed to :

Nelco Properties, LLC
1611 S. Melrose Drive, #114
Vista, CA 92081
