New Fairfield officials are looking into a blight ordnance to address homes that pose a danger to either the occupants or the neighbors.  The Selectmen recently discussed the exact definition of blight.  The local ordinance would create a board, which would make all decisions about properties and special considerations in certain circumstances.  There was a suggestion of notifying neighbors for any properties that come before the board.  The next steps to getting such an ordinance passed would be to have two public hearings.
