CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) –
Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson announced Thursday morning a strategy to remove blighted homes from Cleveland neighborhoods.
The strategy is part of the Healthy Neighborhoods Initiative, which is aimed at improving Cleveland’s neighborhoods.
According to the Mayor Jackson’s office, the program will demolish and rehab hundreds of blighted homes by the end of 2017. Dilapidated homes could pose a safety hazard. The homes selected for demolition were identified along the routes children take to school. Mayor Jackson said since 2006, nearly 9000 homes have been demolished.
