Historic Preservation Commission to consider two demolitions

By Amanda Raymond

SALISBURY — The Historic Preservation Commission will be considering two demolitions on Wednesday.

The commission will meet at 217 S. Main St. at 5:15 p.m.

Pete Bogle, of The Bogle Firm, is proposing to demolish a building at 201 E. Innes St. to make way for a new mixed-use building for Healthcare Management offices on the first floor and residential units on the second and possibly the third floor. He plans to use the current building’s granite blocks in the new building.

The first floor would be 5,800 square feet and there may be about five to 10 apartments. There would be parking behind the building and the missing curb and damaged sidewalk on Innes and Lee streets would be repaired.

The second demolition request comes from the city of Salisbury. The property is at 416-418 N. Fulton St. From photographs provided by the city, the property has deteriorated significantly both inside and out, with vegetation growing all along the outside walls.

The commission will consider issuing certificates of appropriateness after identifying each of the properties, holding a public hearing and deliberation.

In other business, the commission will also consider certificates of appropriateness for:

  • The repair and replacement of windows, screening of roll-out bins and site or parking lot improvements for a property in the 100 block of North Main Street.
  • Putting in brick pavers in a driveway, repairing a deck, adding a hip roof and spiral staircase, adding a walking deck and steps to a driveway and pouring concrete in the basement of a property in the 400 block of West Horah Street.
  • A proposed front wall sign for a property in the 100 block of North Main Street.
  • The replacement of the center railing on the Jackson and Fisher Street steps and installation of a cast iron fountain at the 300 block of West Fisher Street.
  • Removal of an oak tree in the front yard of a property in the 300 block of West Bank Street.
