Pana Pride is an organization that is constantly working to improve the Pana community and drive business into Pana. Recently, they’ve started on a new project with that goal in mind.
Melissa Rybolt, President of Pana Pride, explains why the Neighborhood Demo Fund came about.
The process of removing abandoned homes is not easy. Rybolt says it is a long process, and the fund will help with resources.
There isn’t going to be an overnight change, it’s going to take awhile. The estimated cost to tear down an abandoned property is $5,000-$7,000, which might seem like a lot, but Rybolt shares the math on why it isn’t as much as it seems.
Rybolt appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM morning show.
