Clean-up of Hinton's Dilapidated, Burned,

and Abandoned Structures

Jim Leslie picture

For the past four (4) years, I have overseen the identification and demolition of dilapidated, burned, and abandoned, structures that were too badly deteriorated and damaged to save. These structures have been an eyesore for years to citizens, neighbors, and visitors who travel through and live in Hinton. I am happy to see that one by one, these eyesores are disappearing! I have successfully secured through federal grants over $600,000 to pay for the demolition and removal of these identified dilapidated structures. Each site of removal has been re-seeded and prepared for owners and/or investors to re-build suitable homes to help ease the shortage of housing in Hinton. This has been a vital part of restoring the beauty of Hinton and presents an opportunity to fulfill a critical housing need in our community.
