Diggin’ it

Members of the community with a vested interest in the downtown revitalization commemorate the start of the demolition of the buildings on the 100 block of the south side of West Main Street. The first four buildings are scheduled to be taken down immediately. Environmental testing will occur at 111 and 115 which hopefully will be completed by mid-March. All building are expected to be removed and excavation completed by mid-June.
