MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) –  Macon-Bibb County’s fight against blight, which started in April, has now reached 100 structures.

The 100th blighted home was located on Atkins Drive. That’s in District 5.

District 5 commissioner and Mayor Pro-Tem Seth Clark said these demolitions mean a lot to the people who have to see the buildings every day.

“Each one of these houses has a family in it that is investing in their street, investing in their neighborhood, investing in their families inside the walls of that, and that is a hard thing to do when this is tied around their neck,” Clark said.

Less than a dozen of the 100 buildings have been commercial structures. Plans for the next demolition have not yet been discussed.
