Help provide fast, effective action to influence key decisions on Arizona's historic treasures
November 15, 2006 ~ Arizona Preservation Foundation
Today, the City of Phoenix received a demolition permit application today for 1115 N. 2nd Street. The city has a hold on the demolition permit until Monday, November 20.
This is the Edward Morin House, the oldest house in Evans Churchill, dating from 1909. The Historic Preservation Commission initiated HP zoning on this property in 2004, largely at the request of the community, but then withdrew the case after the owner, Orcutt/Winslow, protested and committed to the HP Commission that they would keep the HP Commission apprised far in advance of any sale of the property and any plans to demolish or redevelop the site.
Because there is no historic preservation zoning, the house could be demolished as soon as Tuesday of next week.
