– BUT the Raze order STILL stands.
Jan 12, 2021, the city is reviewing the low raze bid! PLEASE HELP!
If we can gather enough pledges for immediate repairs maybe we can convince the city to pause the raze order.
Please show your support with a pledge. (If the effort fails, no pledge is collected.)
But right now: YOU CAN help save this historic building with a pledge.

Also, contact officials, ask them to pause the Raze order.
Repairing and restoring this building is
a BETTER OPTION than razing it right now!
