 The City of Huron was awarded a $2 million grant through the Ohio Department of Development's Clean Ohio Revitalization Fund to continue revamping the former ConAgra site along the Huron River.

The funds will be used to demolish the large warehouse and silos on the property next year as the city continues work to eventually redevelop the area.

"We're happy for the entire region," said city manager Andy White.

I'll do it for one million.

It will be interesting to see where all of the demo material will end up. The steel can be sold for scrap, but the concrete is another issue.

With that being said, getting this piece of property cleaned up will most certainly make it more marketable in the future.

The owner of the old Showboat  property knows how to play the system, by  doing just enough to stay out of the City's eyes, but that would be another good target for eliminating a terrible eye sore in the city and make good use of the land and the river frontage. What a mess that area has been for many years.

Fantastic.  I just love what they have done so far.  What an eye sore it has been on the city for many years.  Another good move for Huron.
