City razes apartment building as part of blight-elimination program
The City of Janesville recently demolished a five-unit apartment building at the corner of East Court and Wisconsin streets in Janesville. The city acquired the property earlier this year as part of its blight elimination efforts.
Kelly Lee, Janesville’s neighborhood development specialist, said the city has had preliminary conversations with neighbors about the future of the site, although no decisions have been made.
As part of the same program, the city will demolish three properties it acquired through the Neighborhood Stabilization Program in the next couple of weeks, Lee said. They are at 215 Linn St., 313 N. Pearl St., and 410 N. Pearl St.
