Causer, Dush Announce Blight Remediation Grant for Cameron County

HARRISBURG – The Cameron County Industrial Development Authority (IDA) has been awarded a grant of $43,573 to address a blighted property in the borough of Emporium, Rep. Martin Causer (R-Turtlepoint) and Sen. Cris Dush (R-25) announced today.

“Blighted buildings are a health and safety concern, as well as a quality of life issue,” Causer said. “I am glad the state is able to step in and help clean up this serious hazard to the community.”

“Downtowns are the hearts of our communities, so it is important to keep them beautiful,” Dush said. “I am pleased to see this grant given to the county IDA to help revitalize Emporium’s main street while keeping it safe.”

The project will include the acquisition and demolition of a former mixed-use structure on the main street of the borough’s commercial district. The commercial component of the structure has been vacant for eight years and the residential area has been vacant for two years. The building is unfit to be rehabilitated and requires an asbestos abatement before it can be properly razed.

The grant was awarded to the IDA by the Commonwealth Financing Authority through its Blight Remediation Program.
