Utica’s Common Council Considering Demolition Moratorium
Utica, NY (WIBX) - A resolution to suspend all commercial building demolition within the city of Utica was discussed at the latest Common Council meeting.
Michael Bosak, President of the Landmarks Society of Greater Utica addressed the council, calling the HSBC building an important part of Utica's downtown. "Its a signature landmark building, it's not new necessarily, but it's scenic and historic and this is a scenic building, it think, so I would be very disappointed if it was torn down for parking." he said.
The resolution was not adopted, however it will be reviewed in the near future.
