Work continues on demolition of a number of older buildings in the city, as Belleville clears up some land it owns.
Property manager Joel Carr-Braint says the city is working to demolish a few older buildings, including the Ben Bleecker building at the former Quinte Exhibition and Raceway grounds in the west end.
City council hired Parkside Landscaping to demolish the old barns, sheds, and pavilions at a cost of $42,000, clearing 6.6 acres of land for the city.
Also, the Pointe Anne fire hall is on its way out.
Old deteriorating city-owned buildings on Atkins Road and Yeomans Street are also under the hammer.
