Removing Unsafe Structures
We hate to tear down our City’s structures. Especially when we know they were once a historically valued building or home. Unfortunately, demolitions are sometimes needed for the safety of our neighborhood. Homes that have been vacant and neglected for over 20 years can harbor criminal activity and pose a significant risk to adjacent homes and community members as well as decrease nearby property values. Today, in our City the average cost of demolishing one unit is about $55,000. With this high cost paired with the City’s significant need, funding is essential to secure the safety of Wilmington’s neighborhoods.
