History of Orders on Property:

04/30/2018 Stephanie Harrington: I would like to report that the vacant home 1475 Pacific St., St. Paul, MN 55106 needs to be properly secured by the homeowner. This home has been vacant for about a year now after a kitchen fire and the renters vacated. The owner of the home has abandoned the up-keeping of the property and left it in shambles. The front screen door glass is completely shattered, There are multiple windows that are broken. The mailbox is completely destroyed and laying in the front yard along with a lot of refuse. This home is an eye sore on the block and I believe that it is attracting vagrants and trespassers. I also believe that the shape of this home is encouraging vandalism in our neighborhood. My home last night at 1461 Pacific St. had a concrete brick thrown through the front patio door causing over $1400 dollars in damage. This was reported to the police and my insurance company. I am asking that the homeowner at the very least properly secure the windows and doors with wood boarding or replacement glass to dissuade potential trespassers and I would also like to see the front lawn of the property cleaned up.
