Preservation panel wants photos with demolition applications
Wednesday, September 12, 2012
Those considering applying for a demolition permit should get their cameras ready. The Jefferson City Historic Preservation Commission will draft a request to clarify the city ordinance requiring application before the 60-day clock begins for demolition.
“We can’t require them to let us inside the building to know what we’re voting on,” said chairman Cathy Bordner.
So to help the commission determine historical relevance of a structure before releasing it for demolition, they hope to make current exterior and interior photos part of the standard application for buildings older than 50 years.
