Fate of five abandoned buildings could be decided Friday

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

By Sara Celi

City leaders will hear testimony at 9 a.m. Friday as they decide the fate of five abandoned buildings.

All of the properties have different issues. Some are vacant, others have structural problems, and the buildings are not limited to one part of the city.

The hearing is a way for the city's building department to determine if the structures should be razed.

Leaders say the these hearings are more important now that ever. Just last month, a building collapsed Downtown. In that case, the owner had planned on restoring the property, but the building was so dilapidated it fell on its own.
