Thirty-one vacant houses have been torn down on the south and west sides of Mansfield and part of Shelby.

Dennis Lowe of the Ohio Regional Development Corporation told the Richland County Commissioners Tuesday, another fourteen will be demolished under the third phase of a $420,000 Neighborhood Stabilization Program grant from HUD.

He says it's for the owners of properties in five specific areas of Mansfield: southeast of downtown, South Main Street from the 200 block to the 400 block, the Med-Central Hospital area, West Fourth Street from downtown to the high school, and just south of US 30 on the west side of Main Street.  

Call Lowe at 740-622-0529 to see if your vacant property qualifies to be added to the list.

This is for property owners only, and Lowe does not want to hear from neighbors of vacant houses.

Demolitions will be done this summer.
