BELMONT COUNTY, OHIO (WTRF)–Once a making is still left vacant, it can stand untouched for a long time with almost nothing remaining but character swallowing it full.
Three dilapidated buildings in Bridgeport are becoming torn down soon after many years of neglect.
A nearby neighbor suggests he’s been waiting around several years for someone to get command of the home.
Officers say this is just 1 instance, but properties like this stand all above the county, tarnishing the elegance of the town.
Mike Bianconi, Peace township trustee claims this would not be possible devoid of the help of Belmont County Land Bank and the place treasure, Kathy Kelich.
The laws are not published for us as a Township trustee or metropolitan areas and villages to go and thoroughly clean these up as much as everyone thinks they would be. If it was quick, we’d would have it accomplished.
If it wasn’t for her prior to her having more than the land financial institution, we were being getting nothing at all accomplished in Belmont County. I myself have attended meetings for almost certainly 3 1/2 years on this just these structures it takes a very long time.
Mike Bianconi, Peace township trustee, Belmont County
This specific dwelling they have setting up on Tuesday, has been empty and sitting deserted for about 25-decades.
After every thing is taken off, he says the prepare is to put recycling boxes on the land for the community to employ.
