Who is involved?

Currently the Planning & Development Department is responsible for the 2023 City-Wide Demolition Program.  However, a Blight Task Force will be created and tasked with guiding the implementation of the Blight Mitigation Strategy which houses the City’s Demolition Program.

What is the budget?

The City has not allocated specific funds to the 2023 City-Wide Demolition Program.  However, the City has partnered with the Redevelopment Authority of the County of Westmoreland (RACW) to secure County ARPA Program funds for prioritized demolition projects.

What is happening now?

Currently staff are working through the administrative and process requirements on multiple prioritized demolition projects in the City.
