Demolition Assistance Program
You probably noticed signs like this one at properties along Wilmington Pike. The signs identify properties that are being revitalized using the Wilmington Pike Façade Improvement and Demolition Programs.
The Demolition Program provides financial assistance to property owners along specific sections of Wilmington Pike to assist with the demolition of structures and clearance of sites for purposes of redevelopment. In 2015 the program assisted with the demolition of the former Payless Store at 2645 Wilmington Pike and the former Wonder Bread store at 3613 Wilmington Pike. Both of these properties are now owned by the City of Kettering and we are actively pursuing opportunities for reuse. 4125 Wilmington Pike (former Burger King restaurant) is privately owned and scheduled for demolition and redevelopment of a future Grismer Tire store.
We continue to aggressively pursue private developers and commercial property owners to invest in the Wilmington Pike corridor and our efforts are paying off.
