EDA HELPS CITY ADDRESS BLIGHTED PROPERTIES
The Pipestone EDA has taken an active role in the City’s effort to eliminate blight in Pipestone. Thanks to generous donations from local businesses and residents, the EDA purchased and remodeled 3 homes that had been condemned. Under the direction of the MN West Carpentry Instructor, MN West students and Pipestone Area High School students did much of the remodeling of the 3 homes, gaining valuable “hands on” experience.
Upon completion, the EDA sold the homes, recouping its costs and putting 3 once condemned properties back on the tax rolls, benefiting the County, School District and City. The EDA has begun a 4th remodeling project. This joint effort by the EDA, City, MN West and Pipestone Area Schools is a unique project that is helping to reduce the number of blighted properties in the City and add to the City’s tax base.
