Blight Clearance Program (BCP)

Many Indiana communities are burdened with deteriorated or abandoned downtown buildings and  vacant, dilapidated industrial sites.  In many instances these unsightly and dangerous buildings make them undesirable to investors and new residents. Though some communities are burdened by a disproportionate number of these sites, their presence does not have to be considered the community’s downfall. These sites are often found in downtowns or near transportation corridors, and could be thought of as opportunities—if the funds to address the clearance/demolition were available.
