Looking to get rid of blight? Adam Ortiz wants to hear from you in Prince George’s

Prince George’s County’s showcase demolition of an abandoned house in Landover has brought forth more than a dozen new requests for help in ridding neighborhoods of blight.

Acting Department of Environmental Resources director Adam Ortiz said that at least three houses have been identified by residents as possible candidates for demolition, and at least 10 other requests have come in since last week for the county to look into illegal dumping, overgrown yards and abandoned properties.

To report a problem, Ortiz said, county residents should dial 311, or go to County Click on the county’s Web site.
