Neighbors fed up with delinquent property

NORWICH – Roughly a month has passed since owners were reported abandoning a Town of Norwich residence that stands in disrepair.

The property, located at 172 Lawton-Scheer Road, consists of a trailer, abandoned vehicles, litter, garbage, and materials that neighbors say, “could be hazardous.”



Neighbor David Llewellyn said the problem has been ongoing for the past 12 years, and he is fed up that nothing has been done. “There have been numerous petitions over the years to get the property cleaned up,” he said. “The town should act now.”

The problem worsened Sunday, Llewellyn said, when two of the owner’s adult children came to the structure and removed the trailer’s siding, leaving the structure with bare insulation as its shell. “This is a health hazard,” he said. The angered neighbor also said waste oil, rats and water run-off could be harmful.
