    Land Banks Announce 1,294 Central Ohio Demolitions
    January 17, 2015
    by The Associated Press

    Land banks in central Ohio say more than 1,200 blighted housing units were demolished last year at a cost of $10.2 million. The demolitions, paid for by Columbus, Franklin County and a grant from the state attorney general’s office, are up considerably from the 527 units demolished in 2013.

    I’d like to know in comparison how many properties were sold to be rehabbed. Demolition should only be used as a last resort IMO.

    Yeah, I’d love to know that as well. I look at renovation projects for wrecked buildings like the one coming up at the corner of Oak, or the warehouses in Franklinton, and I have to wonder just how many of these buildings were truly beyond saving.

    I also wonder how feasible it would be to require that any demolition like this have some kind of private/public replacement plan in place before it happens. I would imagine that would slow demolitions down considerably, but would also probably save a lot of buildings that would otherwise just be turned into empty lots for years on end.
