Monroe County has chosen the first so-called "Zombie House" to be renovated under its Make Monroe Home program.
County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo says it will be at 6611 Mt. Read Boulevard in Greece.The house has been vacant for more than two years, has been foreclosed on by the county, and has begun to deteriorate and become an eyesore.
Dinolfo says the Make Monroe Home program will work with the Greater Rochester Housing Partnership to rehab, market and sell the home to new owners. It will also provide training in the building trades for Monroe County BOCES students who will work on this and future houses.
A mix of federal and local funds will pay for the work.
