"Cultural Resources Assessment" OMG! How much wasted time and money will this cost?!? Can't the fire chief walk in and do an inspection that might take an hour maybe two? Don't forget about lead from paint and the soil contamination! Maybe someone should just knock the darn thing and call it good.
This should have been torn down months ago - the place is a major eyesore, not to mention a safety hazard, and as far as I can see, has no architectural merit whatsoever, due to the way it was remodeled into SRO's. Bring in the dozer and get rid of it, for heaven's sake.
About time. Now demolish that burnt out restaurant on Washington St.
Why wasn't this process started as soon as the fire investigation was over? It's been sitting there for over a year now.
Why has this taken so long? I wondered if they were not insured.
How on earth was there 15 apartments in this structure, it doesn't seem possible. Wondering what they will build to replace it, or if it will be replaced at all.
it's about time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
More impressive would be taking care of the eyesore on Washington St, which used to be a restaurant. There it sits, front & center in the midst of the city for all to admire as we go by each day. Government in (non)action, foot dragging in the process to get rid of it.
The home has been standing in that shape for over a year and the city is just now giving out a permit to the home owner... No wounder there is SO, SO much construction and demolition work done in this county with no permits.
You want to know an eyesore? it's the city hall. Big, ugly, and takes up parking that could be used by legitimate customers.
