It’s officially time to wave good-bye to Alexander Lumber
The building at 59 Adams Street has sat empty since 2006 and become a target for graffiti and an “eyesore,” according toVillage administrator Steve Jones.
Starting on Monday, it’ll become a target for a wrecking ball.
Building & Zoning Manager Patty Lariviere announced Tuesday that a demolition permit has been issued for the site and the demolition will begin next Monday.
A fence went up around the property on Wednesday morning, but Lariviere said residents can still park in the un-fenced in areas for the upcoming Christmas Walk.
The Alexander Lumber Co. building itself will be demolished, although its foundation and concrete on the ground will not be removed.
Lariviere said Alexander Lumber Co. was responsible for all of the costs associated with the demolition, including the permit, and there will be no cost to the Village.
Jones commented at an earlier board meeting in September that following the demolition there won’t be anything protruding from the ground.
A full demolition will be completed when a buyer expresses an interest in the site.
