Nashville, Tennessee (WTVF) —The Metro Historic Zoning Commission will meet to determine the fate of some downtown real estate that was damaged by the bombing last Christmas.
The committee will meet at 2 pm to decide whether to demolish or preserve the damaged building along 2nd Avenue. The building dates back to the late 1800s and is part of the historic preservation zoning overlay on 2nd Avenue.
The Metro Historic Zoning Commission needs the help of conservation advocates to let them know if property preservation is possible and if it is important to the community.
On July 1, real estate owners of buildings 170, 172, 174, and 176 submitted real estate demolition requests to the three metro divisions. If the owner requests dismantling, the request must be approved by the committee.
The Commission’s structural engineers strongly believe that demolition is not required, the building can be recovered and repaired, and it is less expensive than demolition.
Historic zoning is currently requesting additional architectural and structural reviews to assist in the decision-making process.
Citizens are invited to today’s conference at the Sonny West Conference Center. It can last up to 5 hours.
