City looks to grant as solution for blighted properties

NORWICH – Plans have been set in place for a grant that would allow the City of Norwich to address some blighted properties and turn them into opportunities for moderate income, first-time home buyers.

On Tuesday night, Planning and Community Development Specialist Todd Dreyer told members of the Common Council about the final properties and plans that will be included in the application for the Restore New York Grant. The grant would provide the city with funds for the acquisition and demolition of some unstable structures, and up to $100,000 each for the construction of new homes in their place.

“We’ve narrowed it down to four properties that are under serious consideration,” Dreyer said. The four properties Dreyer wants to include are 52 Fair St., 23 Grove Ave., 96 Silver St. and 7 Waite St.
