Municipality of Penn Hills

Penn Hills plans to demolish 11 abandoned homes in the municipality and will offer people a chance to object next month, planner Damien Buccilli said.

According to a public notice published on the Penn Hills website, the homes are “considered unsafe, unsanitary and dangerous to human life and the public welfare.”

Those slated for demolition are 708 Beulah Road, 110 Bessemer St., 206 Curtis St., 222 Dorothy Drive, 12409 Frankstown Road, 1916 Funston St., 10019 Grandview Ave., 1855 Lincoln Road, 29 Paxico Road, 10134 Pearl Road and 1891 Runnette St.

The homes on Beulah, Lincoln and Pearl roads, as well as the house on Dorothy Drive, will require asbestos removal, Buccilli said.

People who object to the demolitions can voice their opposition at 9 a.m. Oct. 3, in the municipal center at 102 Duff Road.

Buccilli said the demolitions are estimated to cost around $100,000. Bids will open Oct. 10.
