Several dilapidated houses in Newcomerstown will soon be gone.

Councilmember Jim Carr announced during last Monday night's regular village council meeting that the following houses are tentatively scheduled for demolition:

431 Pearl St., Nov. 12-15.

136 S. College St., Nov. 18-20.

103 S. Goodrich St., Nov. 21-25.

329 W. Canal St., Nov. 26-28.

The removal of these unsightly structures will help to improve the village's overall appearance, improve property value for neighboring home owners, and decrease chances of injury to young children that are playing near, or are tempted to enter the structures.
