Town Promotes Vacant Building Registry

In 2007, the Town of Pulaski adopted Ordinance 2007-06 which established that the owner(s) of a building within a conservation and rehabilitation district that has been vacant for a continuous period of 12 or more months must register such buildings with the Town on an annual basis.

In the years since adoption, this ordinance has not been implemented in a consistent manner.

Effective August 1st, the Town of Pulaski will begin actively requiring property owners with vacant buildings to register so that greater attention is focused on utilizing our properties to the fullest extent.

Owners of vacant buildings will be asked to pay an annual registration fee of $25 to add their property to the vacant building registry. Failure to register a building located in a conservation and rehabilitation district shall be punishable by a civil penalty not exceeding $250.
