Preservationists want warning before Habitat seeks to raze old homes

January 12th, 2012 in News

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.
