Flint is taking the fight against blight to the streets, as three more major demolition projects were just announced.

The Genesee County Landbank has been working to tear down abandoned homes and businesses for the last couple of years.  Tuesday they made the announcement that three more eye sores would be getting torn down this year.

The old Michigan Bell Telephone Warehouse (pictured above) on N. Saginaw and Wood St in Flint has been vacant for at least 20 years. The building has been practically falling apart on its own, so demolition shouldn’t take much.

The Ballenger Court Apartments were originally damaged by fire, but the conditions were not very good prior to the fire. Tenants continued to stay in the apartments even after they were condemned. Now the building has turned into a squatters paradise, with many locals complaining about drug use and violence near the buildings.

The Kirkwood Mobile Home Park is the third location slated for demolition. The 60 lot mobile home park is located on Averill, and hasn’t been used since 2014. The Landbank took ownership of the park in 2015 with plans of re-purposing the land in the future.

The demolitions have been needed for a while, and are finally happening thanks to a half million dollar grant from the Michigan State Housing Development Authority.

Testing on the sites starts immediately, and officials hope that the projects will be done by this time next year.

What other areas do you think should be on the priority list for demolition in Genesee County?
