Inspectors from the City of Windsor have determined developer Lou Vozza failed to meet a city-issued order to clean up the former Grace Hospital site.
Inspectors toured the site Tuesday.
The city will outline its new action plan at 3:30 p.m. at Mayor Eddie Francis' office. It was originally scheduled for 3 p.m.
More on Windsor at Six
CBC Windsor's Steven Bull visited the Grace site, talked to neighbours and will attend the news conference. He'll have additional coverage on Windsor at Six on Tuesday.
They determined Vozza had complied with a municipal order to repair or demolish the property. The order was issued in September and expired at midnight Tuesday.
Westpark Developments Inc. — which provided the first mortgage to Vozza — had taken over the clean-up efforts. However, ultimately, Vozza is responsible because that's to whom the city issued the order in September.
The city had a litany of problems and concerns with the site, including piles of debris.
Lee Anne Doyle, the city's chief building official, said she understands part of the work to dispose of debris piles is incomplete. She said the weather conditions have slowed the progress.
"I understand there's been some issues with that in regards to the freezing and the debris piles. These are things that we will be looking at," Doyle said.
Debris was just one of many issues the city had.
"The issue is with the openings and the access to the site; the perimeter of the site. That's the other part of the order. It has to be secured," Doyle said. "There has to be some kind of fencing so it limits access to the site because there are intruders and the neighbours are concerned about security of the site"
Since the work is not done to the city's satisfaction, the city could take over the property, and even demolish the building.
