The developer is planning to add 30-40 nice, upscale homes in city limits. This will help to add some new housing stock in the city.

I hope that the development is completed. Huntington needs new housing inside city limits.

I hope so as well. Hopefully, a redevelopment plan can be put together for areas with substandard housing to be torn down and new structures built in their place. Certain areas of 9th Ave as well as 10th street near the park would be a great place to start.

I agree. Yesterday I drive to past Ritter Park and turned at the fountain down 10th ave. I was disappointed how much this once main thoroughfare between downtown and the park has decayed over the past 10 years.

That's the cancer that is often rental property. Buy or inherit a house, put next to nothing into it and rent it out. Maximize profits by putting nothing into the structure and once it's so bad that no one will rent it, leave it for the city to clean up.

Hopefully, with the push to further license and regularly inspect rental property, issues like this will be less common. It would be nice if they would really step up efforts like this along main thoroughfares too.
