ANDERSON — "Amen, amen," was the reaction of Sean Wehner when he learned the city of Anderson was demolishing two abandoned houses in the 2300 block of Fletcher Street.
After a slow start to the federally funded Blight Elimination Program, the city is hoping to demolish 75 structures through funding from three different sources.
Wehner has lived on the block for a year and is glad the city is doing something about the empty properties.
ANDERSON — Two county housing developments in Anderson and Elwood received state Rental Housing Tax Credits to provide low-income housing.
The Fieldhouse Apartments, a $12.2 million development at the Wigwam complex, were awarded a little over $1 million in tax credits and another $765,000 in housing trust funds through the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority.
