Legion Update

The Washington Post this morning reported that a settlement has been reached regarding the American Legion Building at 224 N. Fayette Street.

Readers will remember that real estate investor Boyd Walker had challenged the Council's decision to let developer William Cromley tear the old building down to make way for new development. Now it appears that Mr. Cromley will have to wait another two years to see if a buyer can be found to take the building off his hands (as is) before he is finally allowed to demolish the structure.

It remains to be seen whether or not anyone will come forward with the money to buy and renovate this eyesore by using it for day care or some similar commercial activity.
