Demolition begins at old Macon Homes site

Demolition of the old Macon Homes site in Macon began Wednesday. The city of Macon and Bibb County received an allocation of $4.1 million in federal funding for neighborhood stabilization, one of several federal stimulus programs. The abandoned units at the old Macon Homes site will be torn down and single-family houses will be built on the 12-acre lot.
