Mayor Walsh Invites Participation in Skyline Apartments Nuisance Abatement Hearing


The City of Syracuse will conduct a Nuisance Abatement Hearing regarding the public nuisance at the Skyline Apartments at 753 James Street. The hearing is the next step in the City’s Nuisance Abatement Notice issued in March to require safety and security improvements by the building’s owners, Green Skyline.

Mayor Walsh is encouraging individuals who have been impacted by conditions at the 365-unit complex to submit testimony in writing or by attending the hearing. “Input from the public is an important part of this process. It will help ensure the property owner is held accountable and that conditions at the property are improved,” said Walsh.

In-person attendance will be permitted, and attendees will have the opportunity to testify under oath. Individuals can also submit a letter or a written “neighborhood impact statement” to: Skyline Apartments Nuisance Abatement Hearing, ATTN: Mayor Ben Walsh, City of Syracuse, 233 E. Washington Street, Syracuse, 13202.
