NORWICH – After receiving a high bid to move a Canasawacta Street home to a site on Fair Street, the City of Norwich is re-examining its options.
Early this year, Norwich received $300,000 as part of the Restore New York Grant Program. The grant provides funds to demolish condemned city-owned properties and to place new homes on the properties.
So far, the city has demolished burned out homes located at 52 Fair St. and 23 Grove Ave. Originally, the city had planned to move the Canasawacta house, located on property owned by the Chenango Valley Home. If the house remains in its current location, it will most likely be demolished.
