Eyesores demolished in Youngstown

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — Demolition work continued Monday at the century-old General Electric lamp plant in Youngstown.

The project, expected to be complete by June, was delayed last month after Mahoning County building inspectors learned some of the necessary construction and demolition permits had not been obtained.

GE still owns the property off Market Street, which can be sold once the land is cleared.

Also Monday, demolition crews spent the day tearing down a residential eyesore on the South Side of Youngstown. The house at 2717 Reel Ave. has been reduced to rubble.

Wolford’s Rolloff donated its time for the project, marking the third house it has demolished in two years. Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation will clean and seed the lot.
