Irvington’s Mayor Announces Township is Receiving $600,000 to Demolish 50 Unsafe Buildings

Irvington’s Mayor Tony Vauss announced that the Township has been awarded a 0% interest loan of $600,000 from the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs (DCA) and the Governor, to demolish 50 unsafe buildings in Irvington. The monies are part of the State’s Urban and Rural Center Unsafe Building Bond Loan Fund.

“On behalf of the Township of Irvington, I thank Commissioner Charles Richman of the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs, as well Governor Christie, for the $600,000,” said Mayor Vauss. “This will allow us to demolish at least 50 more dilapidated and abandoned buildings. Since I have been Mayor, we have taken down 26  such properties. Doing away with these properties has a positive impact on our neighborhoods and the township as a whole. Once they are down, the area becomes safer and cleaner and opens the way for development.”

The funds were part of a competitive program offered by DCA. This is the fifth round of funding.
