Arnold puts 6 properties up for immediate sale
Arnold officials are hoping to get some former residential properties back onto the tax rolls.
The Arnold Redevelopment Authority on Tuesday night made six properties available for sale to interested developers. The properties are being conveyed to the authority from the city.
The three properties the redevelopment authority feels would be most attractive to private ownership are at 1736 Constitution Blvd., 1906 and 19061⁄2 Victoria Ave. and 310 17th St.
Members of the authority will inspect the structures and determine a sale price on April 23.
Other properties available immediately include:
• 308 Murray Ave. for $500;
• 313 Murray Ave. for $500;
• 1530-34 Third Ave., a triple lot for $1,000.
Authority Solicitor Steve Yakopec said the properties do not have to be bid on. They would be free of liens and back taxes.
About eight other properties will be put on the market later.
The authority will approach individuals who have shown interest in some other vacant properties.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
