"The demolition grant program is another example of how the City of Erlanger works tirelessly to promote economic development, attract jobs and investment and improve the aesthetics of our community," said Mayor Jessica Fette. "I encourage current Erlanger property owners as well as real estate investors, developers, business owners and others who may interested in investing in property to log in to one of the webinars to learn more about this innovative and exciting economic development program."
Under the incentive program, a real estate owner with a qualifying residential or commercial property and a demolition proposal may be reimbursed with a grant for up to $10,000 or 10 percent of the post-demolition property value, whichever is less.
