SALISBURY — A property on Gold Hill Drive has been approved for demolition.

The house at 613 Gold Hill Drive will soon be demolished, pending a bond paid to the Code Enforcement office by the demolition contractor.

An application for the demolition was received on Oct. 14. According to Raymond Barksdale, code enforcement officer, the property is not in a historic district or in the study area of Salisbury.

A public hearing for the demolition was held on Wednesday. Kevin Carter, the applicant, said he owns a property on the other side of the street from the 613 Gold Hill Drive property.

The property was damaged in a fire on Jan. 24. The Salisbury Fire Department said at the time that the house was about 50 percent involved.

Code Enforcement has determined that the property is in partial ruin because of the fire.

Carter said he has since bought the property and now wants to demolish it.

Carter has talked with the surrounding neighbors and Barksdale said they were also notified of the demolition and public hearing by mail.

Besides Carter and code enforcement personnel, no one else showed up to speak for or against the demolition.
