The City of Lakewood Community Development Department will proceed with the abatement of a public nuisance and dangerous buildings in addition to the revocation of the business license for the Rose Garden Motel located at 11701 Pacific Highway SW on August 14, 2007.
Existing unsanitary conditions and numerous building violations with existing structures identified by the Washington State Department of Public Health have prompted the City’s actions. All patrons and residents of all existing recreational vehicles have been required to leave the premises by 5 p.m. on August 13, 2007.
The City of Lakewood is coordinating relocation assistance for remaining residents through various social service organizations.
The City issued two notices to the owners on July 12, 2007. A notice and order for the abatement of public nuisance and dangerous buildings and a notice and order for the revocation of the business license has required the property owners to address issues regarding the safety of the existing buildings and illegal uses occurring at 11701 Pacific Highway SW.
