The Housing Unit Demolition Task Force, an entity of the city attorney’s office, has applied to demolish this Victorian-style single shotgun for the owner, Wilmot Shows, who plans to replace it with a vacant lot. This is a great little house. And Wilmot’s shed in the back is pretty wonderful too.

We have been trying to figure out the role of the HUTF. It seems to be the city entity that is operating as Neighborhood One. Most likely the funds for these demolitions are federal matching funds from FEMA.
