Deadline nears on Heritage House

Posted: Updated:

The owners of the dilapidated Heritage House hotel have one more week to appeal a Superior Court ruling that orders them to tear it down.

Last month, a Superior Court jury agreed with the city that the structure is unsafe and it would cost too much money to fix it up.

Greenbrier Holdings & Investments has until next Friday to begin demolition or appeal. The city can then begin demolition if no action is taken and bill Greenbrier through a lien on the property. If Greenbrier appeals, City Attorney Nathan Davis says he'll ask the court for a post appeal bond to give the city some money to secure the property until the Court of appeals hears the case.
