Genesee County has been awarded $1.2 million to tear down blighted homes.

The funds will pay for 75 homes to be torn down in Burton, and Flint, Genesee, Grand Blanc, Mt. Morris and Thetford Townships.

The Genesee County Land Bank Authority and the Genesee County Metropolitan Planning Commission will work together on the project.

“GCMPC is fortunate to have the opportunity to partner with the Land Bank on another impactful project. This funding will allow for much needed demolition and will improve neighborhoods,” said Derek Bradshaw, Director-Coordinator of the Genesee County Metropolitan Planning Commission. GCMPC and the Land Bank recently partnered on the demolition of the former Ramada Inn in Mt. Morris Township, a $740,000 project completed in July.

The first homes are expected to be razed in early summer of 2017.
