Another heritage building could be facing the wrecking ball.
The owner of James Street Baptist Church has applied for a demolition permit saying the downtown landmark is structurally unsound and a risk to public safety.
He plans to retain the stone entrance and tower, but adds that most of the church needs to be levelled before winter to safeguard public safety.
The historic church is said to need an estimated $2 million in repairs.
The 129 page report was received on Wednesday and tabled by the city’s Heritage Permit Review Committee which plans to tour the building next month.
