St. Peter's Prep Update
Having lost their bid to demolish their historic buildings twice - once in 2019 with Historic Preservation and again last summer when they took the case to the Zoning Board of Appeals, St. Peter's is now suing the city to demolish their historic buildings.
The court date has been set for August and we will let you know if we will be taking any action or will have a presence there. As always, we appreciate your support.
Please reach out to city officials, because it has ramifications that will affect all historic districts. The HPHA has spent $23k to fight the demolition of these historic buildings. If you can donate to the HPHA, a registered 501c3 organization, to help us with this fight, we would be grateful. You can donate HERE
