HARRISBURG – The Senate Urban Affairs and Housing Committee will host a roundtable discussion on blight and neighborhood revitalization in Monongahela on August 11, according to Senator Camera Bartolotta (R-46).
The roundtable discussion will be held at 7 p.m. in the Council Chambers of the Carroll Township Municipal Building at 130 Baird Street. Local elected officials, housing and redevelopment officials and statewide housing organizations have been invited to participate.
“Abandoned and blighted properties create a serious eyesore and can reduce property values for neighboring homeowners and businesses,” Bartolotta said. “This discussion allows policymakers and housing experts to explore all of the options currently available to local communities and determine what additional steps are necessary to return blighted properties to productive use.”
The conversation will focus on state and local efforts to prevent blight and remediate properties that have fallen into a state of disrepair. The roundtable discussion is a public event, and community residents are invited and encouraged to attend.
