Village Notice of Property Demolition Received

May 17th, 2008 - We just received mail notifying us (and our neighbors) that 'the structure at 153 S. Park Blvd is being razed.' The earliest demolition date is stated as June 9th.

Certain other things have to happen before the village issues the demolition permit:

  • We have to have all our utilities disconnected (gas, water, electric, cable, phone) and verified by the village.
  • We have to pay for the demolition permit to be issued.
  • We have to pay a security deposit to the village to insure the property will be made whole (sod replacement).
  • We need to contract with a demolition sub-contractor to actually do the work (we're taking bids now)!

In the mean time we move out next Thursday! It's getting busy 'round here.

Here are copies of the village letter, notifying everyone of the coming destruction of our home of so many years.
