PARMA, Ohio - A longstanding blight on Parma's Neighborhood landscape is no more. The home on 7707 Bertha Ave. was demolished bright and early Tuesday morning.
The home had been in foreclosure since 2005 and didn't sell at a subsequent sheriff's auction. A fire this past February caused extensive damage to the house and, after notification of pending demolition, no party stepped forward to repair the structure.
The property was placed in tax foreclosure. Now that it's been demolished, it's being placed in Parma's land bank.
Over the past three years, Parma has demolished 35 housing structures deemed a local nuisance. Six more demolitions are pending for June 2013.
