[ARCHIVED] City Announces Community Forum to Fight Blighted Property in the Community

The City of Petersburg announced today the launch of “Send Blight Out of Sight” program to stabilize property values by removing and greening vacant and blighted properties in targeted areas in an effort to prevent future foreclosures for existing homeowners and beautify the city. The kick off round table discussion will be held on Saturday, November 8 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Petersburg Public Library (201 W. Washington Street).

“The issue of blighted property in the city is a community-wide effort,” comments City Manager, William E. Johnson, III. “I am excited to announce this program to fight blighted property and look forward to the collaboration between City government and residents with a common goal of improving the quality of life in our neighborhoods.”

Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about historic tax credits, 203K loans and more that help with mitigating the blighted properties in the community. Residents are encouraged to attend and provide input so the City can engage on a campaign to rid the city of blight but also rebuild the neighborhoods.
