Home demolition campaign reaches halfway point

Mayor Bell joined demolition crews on Monday to kick off the latest round in his clean up campaign.
     
Crews are demolishing burned and abandoned homes across the city to remove the eyesores and turn them into green spaces.

The mayor was at hand for the halfway point of his goal. They demolished the 100th home in their goal of 200 this morning as a home off 40th Avenue in Inglenook was destroyed.

Mayor Bell says he is pursuing ways to use these spaces after their cleaned up.
