I Googled “The Bon Air-Vanderbilt Hotel”. I could just weep at the loss of this treasure! Is it too late? I also Googled Redwood Housing and I can now understand the decay we are seeing. Wonder how Redwood would handle a “this property is condemned” notice? What has been allowed to happen here is a disgrace and a shame on this once fine city. “Save the Bon Air” ought to become the new battle cry!
Can’t the fire Marshall suspend the certificate of occupancy? If I recall, not too many years ago the Mercy Ministries
boarding house was shut down for similar violations of noncompliance. Of course, that begs the question of where all the people would go to live in the meantime… how about a 90 day deadline to meet the Code requirements and hefty fines? Surely they can do SOMETHING to force the issue.
