Nuisance abatement is the legal process of addressing and mitigating conditions or activities that disrupt the peace and safety of a community. These nuisances can vary widely, including issues like noise disturbances, blight, illegal dumping, or other activities that degrade the quality of life for residents.

Nuisance abatement is crucial for maintaining the well-being of neighborhoods and fostering a sense of security among residents.

By addressing and resolving these nuisances, communities can improve property values, enhance public health, reduce crime, and create a more pleasant environment for everyone.

Things don't look good.

Sometimes homes have fallen into such disrepair the City will add them to our demolition list. If you have a property set for demolition and you would like to save it, you can file a contract with the City to do just that.

That doesn't go there.

Maybe you're building a shed or deck and forgot to file for a permit, or you parked your car in the front yard, or you have a recreational vehicle parked somewhere on your property where it shouldn't be. These regulations are all part of the TMC because we want Toledo to be a safe and vibrant community.
