Blighted properties draw complaints in all parts of town

The former Double LL farmstand on the Post Road, close to the town's border with Westport, is a sore point in the Representative Town Meeting's District 1.
For those living in the Stratfield section of town, the trouble spot is the former Stratfield Market.
On upper Black Rock Turnpike, it's the former Plant Factory property that draws complaints, and over on Kings Highway East, it's the building that once housed I. Brown Brothers furniture store.
All of those properties can be found on the town's list of blighted properties, and town Building Official Jim Gilleran detailed the list in his annual report to the Representative Town Meeting on Monday.
"Every year, for the past six years, there's been blight," Gilleran said. Some properties are removed from the blight list when work is completed or an offending structure is torn down. Others remain listed, though cleanup work has been started. Others, however, have been moved from the blight list to the Condemnation Board because the citations have not been addressed. READ MORE:
