Moratorium extended

On Monday, City Council complied with our request to extend their moratorium on Outer Battery demolition orders and major city construction until the end of July.
Unfortunately this doesn't apply to the Critch property which the city decided to exempt from the moratorium.  They have issued a 2nd tender call to demolish these 2 structures.
