The City of Marion has been able to demolish 73 blighted homes over the last three years using funds awarded through the state’s Blight Elimination Program.
This month, the city will tear down the last home covered by the program’s funding, at 452 N. Washington St., as soon as asbestos can be removed from the structure.
In total, Marion was awarded about $1.6 million to demolish city-owned residential properties by the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority (IHCDA).
According to Brad Meadows, marketing and communications director at the IHCDA, all $75 million of the blight elimination funding has been awarded, and the IHCDA does not anticipate any more funding coming through in the future.
