The board will be conducting an extensive exploration of saving these two properties and overseeing their proper preservation through our own volunteer labor efforts and a committee that is looking into adaptive reuse possibilities. If you have any information about the two homes or have an interest in purchasing, please contact us! We are working with the city and the property owners and hope to have updates here very soon!
