Re: “Little Rock evicts squatters from historic house

Well, surprise surprise? Not really? Has anyone checked out the neglected property on 611 W. Daisy Bates? Unlived in and neglected for years. Windows busted out and homeless having the time of their lives! Convicted felons living right next door. Whenever one gets out of jail, the robberies go up. This is a haven for the homeless and the drug dealers who have the lovely convenience of having a vacant house plus an alley. The property is consistently littered with abandoned grocery carts, garbage and the routine loud music in the alley after dark. According to the permit office, last permit was pulled in July 2006 and expired in July 2007. No inspections were ever conducted during the permit period. One may ask where is this property owner? Who is holding them accountable? According to the records, this property belongs to the Mayor of Little Rock. Surprised? Ask the property owners of 610 Daisy Bates if they enjoy having the Mayor as their neighbor. Oh sorry, he doesn’t actually live there, he just owns the property. 610 Daisy Bates has been on market for the last five years and remains unsold. This city PRESERVES nothing. The answer is always to tear it down and leave a vacant lot. If this house was located in the River Market District, Moses Tucker would have at least made it into overvalued condos! This Mayor is contributing to the very problem that is plaguing our historic district, lack of preservation and CRIME! Two failed robbery attempts, one completed on the 1400 block of Arch in the last month. That block contains only 7 housing structures. Those are some odds hugh? So again, are we really surprised?
