Demolition Proposed for Two Houses in Old North St. Louis

Two houses in Old North St. Louis are proposed for demolition by Haven of Grace, an outstanding social service provider. The conflict could not be any more difficult for residents of Old North -- past and future are colliding, and a decision must be made.

Read background on the matter here.

The matter will be considered by the Preservation Board at its meeting on Monday. Staff of the city's Cultural Resources Office have denied the demolition permit, and Haven of Grace has appealed. Staff is now recommending demolition of one of the buildings and preservation of the other.

Read the staff recommendation here.

Meeting details:

When: Monday, February 26 at 4:00 p.m.

Where: Conference Room, 1015 Locust Street, 12th Floor

How to Testify: Attend and sign up, or submit written testimony to Preservation Board Secretary Adonna Buford at BufordA(at)stlouiscity.com

Looks like the staff is denying the application for 2619 and approving the demo of 2605.
