It looks like we may have some responsible new property owners in the form of Oregon-based Umpqua Bank for the bankrupt 12th Avenue property we reported on Tuesday. They left a comment on the story saying that they’re assessing the cleanup needs for the property and “will be acting swiftly to clear debris and restore a safe and pleasant looking environment. Additionally we are actively working with community organizations, like CHH [Capitol Hill Housing], to engage with the neighborhood around ongoing clean up efforts.”
Kate of CHH sent this photo of Umpqua crews out on the lot this morning:
Definitely a good thing to see!
