Demolition and Clearance of dilapidated properties plays a key role in fighting slum and blight in Jacksonville. Structures that are falling apart and are beyond repair pose safety and health issues for neighboring properties and community members.

City of Jacksonville Demolition

Neighborhood Improvement Services (NIS) partners with Jacksonville Fire & Emergency Services (JFES) and Building Inspections to help remove dilapidated structures. If you are a property owner looking to demolish a structure, consider partnering with NIS.
