Preservation panel wants photos with demolition applications

September 12th, 2012 in News

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.
