The HARB hearing was very well attended by those concerned about the potential loss of another historic structure in the Model Land Neighborhood. City Staff did an outstanding job of researching and presenting all of the facts about the property. They had an expert witness on hand to testify to the significance of the property and speak to the costs to restore. After a very long hearing the decision was 4/0 to deny the request to demolish. (Len Weeks had to recuse himself from this matter as he does work for the applicant.) The applicant has the right to appeal the decision to the City Commission.
A one-time prominent home in the Model Land Company Historic District, is set to be demolished if the owner receives the approval being sought from the Historic Architectural Review Board. If you care about the historic integrity of our neighborhood please write members of the Board:
