A COLLAGE OF DILAPIDATED HOMES OF THE NORTH MAIN STREET AND JIMTOWN AREA
Over the last several months we have been questioning the wisdom or the lack of wisdom of those who are in charge of improving the housing stock in the North Main and Jimtown areas. All we hear from the DMD, Evansville Redevelopment Commission and Hope Of Evansville is how they are striving to bring move affordable, safe, liveable and energy inefficient housing to the Jimtown and North Main areas.
EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) – A complete rehabilitation to a home at 101 East Tennessee was approved on Thursday by the Board of Public Works.
A $240,000 grant agreement between Hope of Evansville and the EVANSVILLE DMD will completely rehabilitate the abandoned home.
The cost will cover the rehabilitation plus an extensive environmental review, appraisals, and construction drawings.

We give five (5) cheers to Channel 14 TV for bringing this extremely eye-opening investigative story to the taxpayers of this community.
FOOTNOTE: This soon to be renovated HUD-funded rehabilitation house located at 101 East Tennesse Street, Evansville, Ind. has no front door, no gutters, and a crumbling brick foundation.
