City to Raze Several Downtown Buildings

The city of Kenosha is set to purchase — and raze — a handful of downtown buildings in need of repairs, renters and business. Some of the properties to be town down include a large empty building, several duplexes and an old rooming house. In September, city purchased the Garden Court Apartments and made plans to tear that down, too. Those living in these facilities will have to move out when their leases expire. Last month, the City Council unanimously approved about $7.9 million to finance this effort in Tax Incremental District No. 4, which covers much of downtown.
