Going down: First of 3 blighted houses


WILMINGTON — The demolition of three houses in the City of Wilmington got underway Wednesday beginning at 139 A St. by Young’s Excavating & Lawncare.

The projects are funded under a $500,000 grant — received by the Clinton County Land Bank/Regional Planning Commission — as part of the Ohio Building Demolition and Site Revitalization Program, which funds the demolition of dilapidated residential and commercial buildings.

Seven other blighted structures will be demolished in several jurisdictions in the county.

Next up for demolition in the city are the houses at 405 S. Wall St. and 392 Grant St.
