There have been several inquires and requests for explanation as to the Spillway demolition. Basically everything is going to be demolished but for the chimney and the temporary retention of a small building at the north east corner of the property. The retaining wall along the river, from the falls and continuing downstream, will remain and the concrete will be ground on site and used to fill the void behind the retaining wall.
As a part of Spillway’s demolishing plan, they were required to obtain an engineer’s evaluation as to the stability of the chimney. They did so and have a report showing that it is stable.
The Village has requested that as much of the old stone block as possible be retained on site for possible future usage. We have also requested that the stone marker/nameplate on the old boiler building be saved for historic purposes. B&B, the demolition company, has agreed to try and do this.
The Village has not been advised and is not aware of any pending sale for the property.
