Green space for programs

Demolition is expected to start on the house at 121 W. Third Street, located next to the Ida Rupp Public Library, on Monday, May 4.

The house and property were purchased in late 2014 through the generous support of the Friends of the Ida Rupp Public Library.

After review, due to its current condition and accessibility limitations, the house was deemed better suited to be re-purposed as a green space for outdoor programs, with the eventual possibility of also providing additional parking.
