Neighbors in the area, however, are frustrated with the lack of progress and handed a petition with more than 100 signatures to the Rochester Township Board last September asking for something to be done.

The board filed a lawsuit on March 24, 2022, in Olmsted County District Court calling for the home to be demolished for being in violation of the Minnesota Hazardous or Substandard Buildings Act.
