St. Louis County partners with Better Futures to deconstruct three tax forfeited structures

St. Louis County is collaborating with Better Futures Minnesota to deconstruct three blighted, tax-forfeited properties in the Duluth area through a state environmental trust fund grant. The deconstruction process will remove raw material from the structures, including dimensional lumber, wood doors and windows, porcelain sinks, cast iron tubs, and hardwood flooring. Better Futures offers this material for sale to the public, diverting usable construction resources from ending up in a landfill. When the process is complete, St. Louis County receives a clean site, with the potential to convey in the future, and return to the tax base.
