Blight Task Force

Welcome!  As the City of Torrington works to combat the issue of blighted properties, please utilize this page for information on what constitutes blight, to report a blight complaint, or to find out more information on the process.  The Property Maintenance ordinance, commonly known as the blight ordinance, was recently updated in September, 2017.  Updates included the creation of a blight enforcement officer, and included greater enforcement powers for the City to enforce the  ordinance and help keep our neighborhoods welcoming, safe, and presentable.
