Thanks to Town Supervisor Dana Levenberg for sending out advance warning of the demolition of the 1860s farmhouse at 87 Hawkes Avenue:
We have received word from the Town Building Department that a demolition project is tentatively scheduled to begin tomorrow (Thursday, February 15th) and is expected to last for several days. This will occur at 87 Hawkes Avenue, the former insurance agency building on the future site of the Parth Knolls development.
The staging is scheduled to begin tomorrow (Thursday) and last through the end of this week; demolition is scheduled for Monday, February 19th and should take about a day, followed by several days of clean-up. All required conditions, including asbestos abatement, utility removal, rodent inspection and dust prevention were met.
