Just take a right or left turn in Cuyahoga County and you will run into a vacant or abandoned property. There are thousands of them. So Cuyahoga County has decided to toss in $10 million to remove a small slice of the vacant property pie.

"This first round of demolition will remove over 600 blighted, vacant and abandoned structures across the county, providing needed relief to our communities," added Cuyahoga County Council President Dan Brady. "I'd like to thank the county executive and the county land bank for their support in making this program a reality, and I look forward to continuing the momentum that has already begun."
