CEDAR LAKE | Town staff continues to work on the list of unsafe buildings in town, an ever-evolving list, Building Commissioner Jack Slager said.

"This is a work in progress,” Slager said.

He and Town Manager Ian Nicolini’s staff have been working on the list for the past few years and have documented structures through roughly two-thirds of the town. At present, 49 buildings are on the list, Slager said.

Making the list doesn’t mean that the building is in imminent danger of being demolished or needs to be demolished, he said. The list encompasses a range of conditions, from buildings in need of repair to those that will have to be knocked down eventually.

Some building owners are already cooperating, by either making repairs, selling the buildings to someone who will repair them or arranging for demolition. What could be prime commercial real estate on Cline Avenue was opened up by such a demolition, Slager said.
