Long-suffering residents of a Northland apartment complex say they may get some relief after a thorough inspection of the property.

Last month investigators with several Kansas City agencies, including Neighborhoods and Housing Services, Fire Prevention and the Health Department made a surprise inspection at the Englewood Apartments on Northwest Waukomis. They found numerous health and safety violations.

"Mold, water damage, electrical issues, heating units that were improperly ventilating, serious life-safety issues, as well as some public health issues that need to be remediated with more than just a coat of paint," said Troy Schulte, Kansas City manager.

Cleveland-based Millennia Housing Management owns and operates the complex, which receives federal low-income housing funds.

Englewood Residents have complained about poor maintenance for several years. Now Kansas City has a new healthy housing ordinance which allows for expanded enforcement.

City officials will meet with Millennia Housing Management next week to give the company 30 days to develop a plan to address the infractions, Schulte said. 

Below is the letter Kansas City officials sent to a local official with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
