LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Louisville is taking on the vacant home problem plaguing the city. A home in west Louisville was torn down today as part of the city's effort to improve neighborhoods where these type of structures harm property values and encourage crimes.
Louisville plans to demolish 100 homes this year -- 75 were torn down last year.
There's also a plan to get foreclosed homes back into the hands of homeowners, as Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer explains: "We've hired a real estate broker to more quickly and efficiently expose properties which Metro owns, so we are getting them in the hands of people to put their in...what properties are out there."
The city also has a new online Google map that pinpoints vacant homes and lots and also shows property maintenance violations.
