The City of Indianapolis is making progress in selling vacant and abandoned properties. Last Tuesday, Mayor Joe Hogsett joined the Department of Metropolitan Development and Renew Indianapolis to celebrate the city's 200th property sale in 2018.
"Last year I announced a plan to rehab, transform or demolish 2000 homes in two years. It was an ambitious plan. Since that time however, city departments have partnered with community groups to accomplish that goal aiding in residential repairs and rehabs funding the construction of new housing in apartments and eradicating neighborhood blight.” - Mayor Joe Hogsett
