At the Historical Commission’s July public meeting, the house at 109 Forest St was found to be historically significant. At our August public meeting we will determine whether or not this building is also preferably preserved. That meeting will be Monday, August 12. Because there is considerable public interest in Forest St and its historic homes and buildings we would like to consider locations larger than the usual Room 201 at City Hall, so the time and location are yet to be decided.
If a building is found preferably preserved, an 18 month delay of demolition will take place, to give the demo applicant time to consider renovation, reuse, relocation and other alternatives to demolition.
