Task Force has applied for the owner to demolish this residence under the
city’s voluntary demolition program (no information on the building included
with the agenda).

This voluntary demolition program is for houses that are severely damaged. If a house has a damage estimate of over 70 percent, then it does not have to go through the HCDRC review process. Most of these voluntary demolition houses are over 70 percent. It is strange that the city would send these houses through the HCDRC process if they don’t need permission from the HCDRC to demolish. There must be confusion in communications in this city. This house has been demolished by the city already.
