The owner of a circa 1880s house at 3804 N. Missouri Avenue has filed a demolition request with the City. The house is considered a contributing structure in the Mississippi Avenue Conservation District, so a 120 day delay period has begun. You can download the Demolition Delay information here.
Meanwhile, another demolition delay is underway for a contributing structure in the Kenton Conservation District. The owners of a 1912 bungalow at 7642 N. Brandon Avenue have decided to tear it down. That information can be downloaded here.
When we talk about neighborhood character and historic fabric these modest homes are the very thing we speak of. It is certainly our hope that alternatives to demolition will be found.
