Lot Cleared in Preparation for Demolition

May 16th, 2008 - We contracted with Steve's Tree Service to remove our front crabapple and two small fir trees, as well as all the shrubbery surrounding the house.

In the back two stumps and two intertwined crabapple trees were also removed. All is now ready for demolition and subsequent construction.

I called the village permits clerk this afternoon to ask about the status of our application for demolition / construction. She said the village approved the 'engineering' last week, but the approval mailing went to 153 Park (a home on the north-side of Roosevelt Road) instead of to 153 S Park.

Needless to say, the resident there was nonplussed to hear her home was approved for demolition! Anyway, the approval package has been re-mailed to us and I expect it shortly.

Here are before and after photos of the property. Just click the thumbnails for full-size images.
