The Calhoun County Land Bank Authority has received a large sum of money to help demolish blighted properties in the city of Albion.

The Michigan Land Bank Fast Track Authority’s Blight Elimination Program awarded Calhoun County the $125,000 earlier this year, and it was announced Monday.

The blighted properties are all within a few block of downtown Albion, with their demolition intended to improve neighborhoods and promote public safety.
