Vacants to Value Works Goes to Work in Remington
Removal of blight delights homeowners
BALTIMORE, MD (April 23, 2013) - Baltimore Housing Commissioner Paul T. Graziano joined Council President Bernard “Jack” Young, Councilman Carl Stokes, Councilwoman Mary Pat Clarke, community leaders, and residents of the Remington community to demolish a nuisance property at 2605 Miles Ave.
“We are working with communities all over the city to create opportunities to build on strength,” said Housing Commissioner Paul T. Graziano. “Mayor Rawlings-Blake’s Vacants to Value initiative is critical to our success in eliminating blight in our neighborhoods and I believe it’s working.”
Launched in November of 2010, Mayor Rawlings-Blake's Vacants to Value initiative seeks to encourage reinvestment in neighborhoods impacted by blighted properties by strengthening code enforcement, promoting rehabilitation, streamlining the sale of vacant city property, and by providing new, targeted incentives for homebuyers and developers who invest in vacant properties.
