Building Commissioner Steven Desilets, Chief of Staff Tom Ashe, Mayoral Aide Lavar Click-Bruce, Director of Disaster Recovery and Compliance Tina Quagliato Sullivan, Ward 4 City Councilor Malo Brown and city officials joined neighborhood residents for the demo announcement of 53 Terrence Street.

The City of Springfield will begin demo operations of 53 Terrence Street after receiving a court order demo order from the Western Division of Housing Court.  The property suffered significant fire damage and has been a blighted property upon the neighborhood.

Mayor Sarno states, “I want to thank my dedicated city team for their efforts in petitioning the housing court to get a court order to demo this blighted and unsafe property.  My residents and business community should not have to endure living next to this unsafe property and I want to thank them for their patience as we worked together to get this resolved.”

The City anticipates demolition will begin July 18 and it will take approximately a week to complete site restoration.  Demolition will be completed by Associated Building Wreckers of Springfield and environmental monitoring is being completed by Atlas/ATC of West Springfield. Anticipated cost of demolition is $49,579.00.
