City To Consider Requiring Special Permission To Demolish House More Than 49 Years Old

There will be a special joint study session of the Monrovia City Council and Monrovia Historic Preservation Commission in the city's council chambers (415 S. Ivy) on Monday, June 20 at 7 p.m. to discuss old house preservation.

Staff is proposing that anyone who wants to demolish a home built 50 or more years ago (before 1967 currently) be required to get a special demolition permit, for which he would have to submit "a formal written historic building assessment prepared by a qualified historic preservation consultant."

After that, "The Assessment would be presented to the Historic Preservation Commission for their review."
