News/Announcements

2019 Curbside Inspection Program

The annual Curbside Inspection Program for even-numbered properties will be starting soon! The 2019 Curbside Inspection Program will begin the week of April 27th and will run through the week of October 7th. Rental properties are excluded from the Curbside Inspection Program unless they are vacant, or being utilized as a single-family dwelling.  Property owners due for an inspection was mailed information on how to prepare for the inspection and the inspection schedule. The information will also be on Village website.

The full-time Village Housing Inspector is Hilary Schickler. She will be wearing an ID badge and have business cards with her when she is out in the field. Curbside inspections are conducted from the sidewalk or curb and so the inspector will not be walking on to private property. Please keep in mind, that the inspector is not able to discuss your property’s inspection or a neighbor’s inspection while a curbside inspection is being conducted. Each homeowner will receive a copy of their Curbside Inspection Report. Eyesore properties may be called into the Housing and Building Department or submitted through the Village’s website.

When you receive your report, please pay attention to the Compliance Date.
All repairs should be made by this date. When all repairs are completed, contact the Housing & Building Department so that we can re-inspect and update your report.

2019 Curbside Inspection Schedule

If you have questions about the Curbside Inspection Program or require further assistance, contact the Housing and Building Department, Monday-Friday from 9am-5:30pm at 216-641-2716.

Thank you for helping to keep Newburgh Heights beautiful!

Demolitions

The following properties are slated to be demolished this year;

4003 E. 26 ST
3846 E. 38 ST
3854 E. 38 ST
4052 E. 44 ST
4014 E. 55 ST

4416 McGregor Ave
4420 Pearse Ave

The Housing and Building Department will communicate to the Village when we know when the demolitions will occur, and we will notify residents who live next to these properties. If you live next to a property that is being demolished it is a good idea to take a few precautions during the demolition process:

  • Keep your windows closed during the demolitions. Lead dust is very fine and can get in to your home through the screens and settle on the window ledges and floor.
  • Keep children and pets inside during the demolition process.
  • Consider washing down the outside of your house and garage when the demolition is complete.
  • Report unsafe practices to the Housing and Building Department. The demolition contractor is required to hose down the site during the entire demolition process. If you don’t see them watering down the site call the department.

Did you know?
Smoke and CO2 Detectors are required in all rental properties.  Be sure to check that all smoke and CO2 detectors have batteries and are working properly. Inform your landlord when a detector stops working or if it is missing. Smoke detectors are required in every bedroom and in the common areas.
