Demolition

The Demolition Program was added to the Public Works Department starting Fiscal Year 2015, and in-house resources will be used for this program. There are over 300 substandard structures in the City and we are currently working on demolishing the City Council’s Top 40 Priority List. Our plan is to demolish 2 houses per month, and we have 23 houses scheduled to demolish by June 2015. We are currently working on getting the remaining 17 houses on the City Council’s Top 40 Priority List ready to demolish. After we have finished with the City Council’s Top 40 Priority List, we will then prioritize the rest of the substandard structures and get them ready to demolish.

For more information regarding substandard structures, please see the Inspections Department's Substandard Properties page.   

Below is a map that shows the substandard structures in the City. The map Legend classifies them into 3 categories: Demolition Complete, Scheduled for Demolition, and Substandard. You can zoom in on the map and select the structures to give you information on each structure.
