Public Hearings


The City of Evansville applied to Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority’s (“IHCDA”) Blight Elimination Program (“BEP”) and received a total award of $2,554,000. The City of Evansville has worked diligently to achieve cost savings during all phases of the BEP. As a result of its hard work, the City will be able to complete additional BEP demolitions with the funds it was previously awarded. The City of Evansville was originally awarded funds for 113 demolitions. Using funds from its original BEP award, the City of Evansville intends to work in conjunction with the Evansville Land Bank Corp, Tri-state Food Bank Inc., Craig Miller and Ryan J. Brockman to acquire and demolish the following residential structures:

The goal of the Blight Elimination Program is to reduce the number of blighted and abandoned homes in our community and neighborhoods. We believe the acquisition and demolition of these structures will stabilize neighborhood property values, prevent avoidable foreclosures, and assist us in our efforts to keep our community and neighborhoods safe.

We invite you to attend a public hearing at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, June 15, 2018 in Room 307 of the Civic Center Complex at 1 NW MLK Jr Blvd, Evansville, Indiana to discuss the positive impact this program will have on our community.
