Three parcels down from where a vacant, blighted house on South Wall Street was being razed Monday there is a new house under construction on land where another vacant residential structure was previously demolished through the Clinton County Land Bank program. This construction site is one of 41 Clinton County Land Bank transformed properties, according to the “Our Progress” page on the Land Bank’s website, which features ‘Before’ and ‘After’ photos. There are 17 Land Bank-owned properties around the county currently available for purchase, the website stated Monday.
A vacant, blighted house at 405 South Wall Street in Wilmington was being razed Monday, funded by a grant received by the Clinton County Land Bank/Regional Planning Commission. The proximity to a neighboring home at left which is occupied made for a more exacting demolition process.
