What most in the neighborhood see as an eye sore, will soon be removed, reducing blight in this northwestern Flint neighborhood. The City of Flint and Genesee County Land Bank have scheduled the demolition of six Carpenter Road Apartment building for tomorrow, Friday, Dec.16.

This is a joint project between the City of Flint and the Genesee County Land Bank and is part of the Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP2). The NSP2 is a federally funded program administered through the Michigan State Housing Development Authority, and does not cost anything to the City of Flint or the Genesee County Land Bank.

In March 2010, the City of Flint and the Genesee County Land Bank were awarded $26.4 million in NSP2 funding through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The purpose of the program is to stabilize neighborhoods through demolition and renovation of selected homes.

The Carpenter Road Apartments are located at Carpenter Road and Orange Lane directly across from Northwestern High School. The demolition ceremony is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. and will include Mayor Dayne Walling, County Treasurer Deb Cherry and Chatham Village Block Club President David Jackson as guest speakers.
