TOWN OF UNION (WBNG) — The Broome County Land Bank started a series of four demolition projects Tuesday morning.

The land bank acquired 7 East Maine Rd. in the town of Union from a Broome County Tax Foreclosure in early 2020

The property consists of several mobile homes that have sat vacant for years leading to significant structural damage. Each one has been condemned as unsafe.

Broome County Land Bank targets distressed, vacant, abandoned and foreclosed properties with the goal of creating economic development.

“One of our main priorities is to return these properties we acquire return them to the tax roll as soon as possible. So that is what we are trying to do with many of our properties,” said Jessica Haas, the executive director of the Land Bank.

Properties in the town of Union and Binghamton will be demolished. The total cost of the demolitions is $51,000.
