KEOKUK, Ia. (WGEM) -

An eyesore on Keokuk's Main Street is getting restored. 

Officials say Pizza Plus on 2528 Main St. was sold this month, as well as four other properties in the city.

Code Enforcement Manager Kathie Mahoney said the new owner bought it for just over $1,000. Mahoney said the plan is to bring the building up to code but it's unclear what the owner would turn it into.

Residents said they are happy to see more people trying to rebuild in the area. 

"I think it's great! We definitely need more places that are unkempt on Main Street," Resident Gary Picton said. "We need more help from them. If someone is willing to come in and spend a little bit of money for the city, it's great." 

The four other properties were open lots. Neighbors bought those to expand their yards.
