Preservationists want warning before Habitat seeks to raze old homes
Thursday, January 12, 2012
Several properties have been donated to River City Habitat for Humanity recently.
After assessing the cost-effectiveness of meeting their mission through rehabilitation, the local not-for-profit targeted three to be razed for a new build.
At the city’s Historic Preservation Commission meeting Tuesday, Habitat officials were asked if the historic preservation panel could be notified in the future before Habitat applies to have a building demolished.
Kelly Smith, Habitat executive director, and Kyle Kittrell, construction manager, discussed Habitat’s evaluation process.
