Item 8.8 – Riverside Brewery Co. Demolition Request:  I voted YES on this item.  An independent third-party engineering report stated unequivocally that the 90+ year old building had serious structural deficiencies and failings that threatened public safety if it was allowed to remain standing.

After consultations with nearby residents, and after on-site discussions with the proponents, it was determined that the best course of action would be to demolish the building only after the proponents provided plans satisfactory to the City Planner which provides buffering from the road and landscaping elements that improve the aesthetics of the industrial site while also  addressing the resident’s concern about dust emanating from the gravel piles.
