The City of Springfield will begin demo operations of 53 Terrence Street after receiving a court order demo order from the Western Division of Housing Court. The property suffered significant fire damage and has been a blighted property upon the neighborhood.
Mayor Sarno states, “I want to thank my dedicated city team for their efforts in petitioning the housing court to get a court order to demo this blighted and unsafe property. My residents and business community should not have to endure living next to this unsafe property and I want to thank them for their patience as we worked together to get this resolved.”
The City anticipates demolition will begin July 18 and it will take approximately a week to complete site restoration. Demolition will be completed by Associated Building Wreckers of Springfield and environmental monitoring is being completed by Atlas/ATC of West Springfield. Anticipated cost of demolition is $49,579.00.
