The URA’s contracts will address a total of 45 structures.

The City’s Public Works Department will raze the 20 structures in-house that were abated.

Removal of these structures is a multi-faceted benefit to the city; it eliminates eyesores, reduces safety hazards, and opens up property for potential future development which will increase the property values of the surrounding neighborhoods. 

City Manager Martin Howe stated, “With the awarding and signing of the contracts, the Urban Renewal Authority and City are very eager to have these demolitions completed.  Removing slum and blighted structures is a benefit to all of our communities.”
