City moves to demolish E. Cherry St. building

The city has notified Dornoch that it will proceed legally to knock down the burned out building at 65 E. Cherry St.

City Administrator and Redevelopment Director Peter Pelissier last fall asked the city engineer and city construction official to investigate whether the building was structurally sound or should be razed.

Dornoch presented plans to develop the property in November 2007, adding a third floor with residential units on the second and third floors and ground-floor retail. The building housed a former wig and beauty supply store on the first floor before a fire destroyed it in summer of 2005.
