Brockton

City receives property grant

Brockton has been chosen as one of 21 communities statewide to receive a Distressed Property Identification and Revitalization Grant from the state attorney general’s office. The award will boost efforts to reduce the number of vacant and abandoned properties around the city. The grant, which will total $100,000 over two years, will fund the hiring of a distressed property coordinator at the Brockton Redevelopment Authority. The new staffer will work with Plymouth County Register of Deeds John Buckley, the city code enforcement department, and residents to develop ways to get properties back on track, officials said. “This is wonderful news for our community,” Mayor Linda M. Balzotti said in an e-mail. “And I am thankful for all the support Attorney General Martha Coakley has offered the city in our efforts to address the foreclosure crisis.”
