First Wave of Blight Removal to Begin Monday

Posted: Updated:

The first wave of blight removal in Binghamton will begin on Monday, June 19 with two properties on Tremont Avenue.

20 and 22 Tremont will be removed shortly after a 9:30 a.m. press conference. Binghamton Mayor Rich David will join Gorick Construction to speak before the demolition begins.

This comes just one week after Binghamton was selected among eighteen cities to receive a grant to help transform blighted, vacant and poorly maintained properties.

The Cities Rise program will give the cities over $10 million over the course of two years and access to a platform to analyze housing and code enforcement data.
