The wrecking ball is moving into downtown Vernon.
Demolition of city properties in the 2900 block of 29th Street, adjacent to the library, are scheduled to take place over the coming weeks.
“Hazardous material has been removed from the buildings and gas line removal is the next step,” said Tanya Laing Gahr, the city’s communications officer.
“The actual demolition will follow and take about three weeks to complete. The estimated time of completion of the demolition and site preparation is end of June.”
A downtown parking lot will be developed on the site.
