Pro Bono Efforts Help Fight Blight in Memphis

Richard Spore and Justin Starling were recognized by Memphis, Tennessee, Mayor Jim Strickland for their pro bono work helping the city draft a new blight ordinance, which was adopted by the city earlier this year. In December 2018 and effective January 1, 2019, the Memphis City Council adopted the International Property Maintenance Code (IPMC), an international code to establish and promote essential standards for health, safety, and welfare by requiring maintenance of structures throughout a community. Richard and Justin helped to adapt the Memphis-specific IPMC that updated certain outdated codes and better reflects today’s market reality.
