Preservation Group's Appeal Denied by City Commissioners
Their appeal was dismissed, but they say it wasn't a total loss. Preservation group Historic Gainesville Inc. filed an appeal last month to prevent an outdoor beer garden from being built at 24 South Main Street.
The corner used to be home to a 131 year old building.
Gainesville City Commissioners ruled they had no standing to file the appeal. But Michael Volk says one positive thing came out of the process.
He said, "The commission approved a motion last night to have the CDC review preservation protections for downtown...and we feel this is a positive step, we'd like to be involved with them."
Volk says he is working to establish protections for historic buildings downtown and that commissioners still need to address what he says are code violations in the beer garden plan.
