Town officials met with a number of Tolland residents from Barbara Road last month to discuss the home at 46 Barbara Road, which has been abandoned for a number of years.
According to the summary in the Town Manager's Report, the home is not habitable because its concrete foundation is failing. However, the report explains that the house is not in imminent danger of collapsing, a criteria which is necessary for the town's building official to have it demolished.
Deutsche Bank holds the mortgage and pays taxes on the property, and the town is pursuing a case in Superior Court to have the home demolished, the report said.
A letter from a number of Barbara Road residents said that they are concerned about potentially increased crime, vandalism and fire threats at the property. The letter also states that the home has been abandoned since 2008.
