Wausau moves to demolish more blighted homes, build new houses

WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAU) – Wausau will be buying and demolishing a blighted house on Jefferson Street to make way for new construction.

City attorney Anne Jacobson says the home at 727 Jefferson was bought after the neighboring house was condemned because it was overrun with cats. The city will be combining the two lots together to create one single family property that will fit in with the local houses.

Jacobson says the Hmong Association and Fresh Start will be handling the construction of the new house, and styling it so that it fits in with the surrounding buildings. After construction, it will be sold, and the city will get a portion of the funds to cover the money spent. “You're putting one more home owner in the neighbor hood. It's a contributing factor in the neighborhood.”

Public works will move to knock down the house as soon as possible.
