Another City Demolition

Owen Sound | by Kevin Bernard  

The old Around the Sound food market building could be demolished soon.

Just as the demolition work on the old St. Mary's school building begins, the old Around the Sound building on 6th Street East in Owen Sound should be coming down soon.

The City's Chief Building Official Brian Green says they issued a notice to the owner a few weeks ago, that the structure needed to be demolished by October 28th.

He says the city has received complaints from neighbours, and they are concerned about the snow-load on what is left of the building.

Green says they haven't heard anything back from the owner, Chris Han, so they are trying to contact him this week to find out what his plan is for the site.

Green says if the building is still up after October 28th, the city could move to demolish it and put the bill on the property taxes.

The former Around the Sound building was heavily damaged in a fire in May and has been boarded up ever since.
