According to CPTED principles, vacant and unmaintained buildings have been linked to increased crime, risk to public health and welfare, by creating the impression the space is not cared for. The Demolition Grant offers a 50% matching grant up to a maximum of $50,000 for the removal of a building within the Downtown Incentives Program Boundary.
