Downtown Bethesda building declared unsafe by Montgomery County (Photos)
Montgomery County took a swift initial action on the roofless building I reported on yesterday, condemning the structure at 4820 Auburn Avenue. Nearby residents have expressed several concerns about the vacant property, most recently its potential to hold standing water that could breed mosquitoes as temperatures rise.
A tarp over the top of the structure has been blown aside, exposing the interior (and pockets in the tarp) to rainwater.
As of last evening, the tarp had not been replaced.
