Getting rid of those vacant homes is laudable. It's not rocket science either. Nothing good can come of those homes so tear them done ASAP. The thing is that the problem is a moving target. After the three thousand are torn down this year, there will be a newly created 3,000+ sitting there. The slate needs to be wiped clean all at once and maintained on a monthly basis.
How long will it be before a story comes out about them demolishing the wrong house? In some areas of town, they can't even tell what the address is. They can't legally sell some property for this reason. Of course that's self limited by the lack of buyers anyway.
