BAD Buildings on Camera: Fairmont’s 4-Part Video Series

WVBOY in Fairmont, WV recently filmed a four-part video and article series featuring the city’s efforts to address abandoned and dilapidated buildings. The series features perspectives from the volunteer BAD Buildings team, private owners, private developers, deconstruction contractors, and local banks, who each offers solutions to remove blight from their streets. A volunteer-led survey of the city’s 9 square miles by the BAD Buildings team yielded an inventory of over 300 abandoned or dilapidated buildings, and the group is now focused on prioritizing 70 structures in a target neighborhood.
