332 Main Street Demolition Delay Waiver Denied

The Historical Commission met tonight.  I wasn’t there, but through the miracle of the internet, the video has already been posted.

In short: the demolition of 332 Main Street was denied a waiver, which means there’s a year before the Krocks can demolish the building.

For what it’s worth, the Historical Commission felt their questions about the cost of the demolition and the economic hardship experienced were not answered.

Also, their lawyer said that there is asbestos in the building but that it would be removed appropriately.  Considering how safely asbestos was removed at both Flagg’s Building and 240 Main Street, let’s hope they can find a buyer or find the money for renovations (and a contractor who hasn’t been convicted on environmental safety charges).
