The Warren County Redevelopment Authority met Tuesday to discuss properties in Clarendon Borough, Glade Township and Russell.
An agreement has been reached between the RDA and Clarendon Borough regarding the property at 3 Railroad St. The borough purchased the property with the help of a Community Development Block Grant in order to demolish the house.
An agreement is in the final stages between the RDA and Clarendon which allows the RDA to recover the costs of the demolition if the property is sold and is not redeveloped to benefit low- to moderate-income individuals.
The property at 10 Railroad St. in Clarendon, currently owned by Wanda Miller, was also discussed Initial plans to sell the property have fallen through and the RDA's next move is to contact Miller about future plans.
The 2393 E. Fifth Ave. property in Glade Township owned by Emily Hecei is also in the process of being sold, though a timeline has yet to be established. Andrea Stapleford, the authority's solicitor, will contact Hecei to determine the next step. Several persons have expressed interest in purchasing the property, the authority said.
Three properties at 119, 121, and 123 Front St. in Glade Township have been sold and while the new owners await clear title, clean-up has begun. The three lots are all zoned to be redeveloped as residential properties.
The only new item was the property at 102 Cottage Pl. in Russell belonging to Jack and Gina Passinger. Mrs. Passinger was present at the meeting via conference call and agreed to 30 days for researching the cost of demolition. There are also interested parties who wish to purchase the riverfront property and resolve the blighted conditions, according to Dan Glotz, county planning director.
Passinger was asked to attend the authority's Dec. 18 to discuss the matter further.
