An administrative court hearing on more than 200 alleged code violations at MacArthur Park Apartments was continued Wednesday for two weeks.
The city of Springfield plans to re-inspect the complex in the 2700 block of MacArthur Boulevard on Friday to see if some of the violations have been fixed.
Springfield attorney Don Craven, who represents MacArthur Park’s owner, James Green of Granite City Investment Company, said a local contractor has been hired to renovate one of the buildings from top to bottom.
A plan will be assembled to complete the remaining repairs at the complex based on how long the contractor takes to renovate the first building, Craven said.
The violations stem from last summer, when the city executed a search warrant to inspect the apartment complex. Dozens of violations were found, and some units were placarded and deemed uninhabitable. Inspectors have been back several times since to inspect additional units and re-inspect others.
