An old abandoned gas station in Masury is going to be torn down.
A $250,000 Abandoned Gas Station Grant will fund the cleanup work at the former Fuel Express station at 920 S. Irvine Ave. in Masury.
The state grant will fund 100 percent of demolition costs and the removal of an underground tank and environmental cleanup.
The work will begin on April 2.
The same grant was awarded last year to take down the old McQuaid’s gas station on E. State St. in downtown Girard.
“The funding obtained from the Ohio Developmental Services Agency through the diligent work of the Land Bank, TNP and the Regional Chamber is invaluable to the revitalization of our community. It provides the resources needed to remove a long-time blighted gas station on a main thoroughfare between Youngstown and Warren, and allows for the future development of the site.” Sam Lamancusa, Trumbull County treasurer and TCLRC board president.
The Lank Bank is going to accept proposals for the .17 acres of commercial property in Girard soon and the Masury property will also be made available in the near future. Anyone interested can contact the Trumbull County Land Bank at (330) 469-6828 or online.
