Enderby targets derelict building
A burned-out building in Enderby is coming down.
The City of Enderby is preparing to demolish the Cliff Avenue bus depot, which was destroyed by fire April 1.
“I am relieved for the neighbours who have been negatively impacted by this situation. They deserve better,” said Mayor Howie Cyr.
The city had issued an order to the property owners giving them a fixed timeline to bring the property into alignment with community standards.
“In the absence of that compliance, the city has decided to undertake the work and bill the property owners accordingly,” said Cyr.
A contractor is completing the necessary permits to begin the demolition work by July 16.
For Cyr, this action is positive for the community.
“It is a testament to the determination of the City of Enderby to ensure that our downtown is and remains a vital, healthy, safe, and attractive place,” he said.
The 100-year-old building had also served as an opera house.
