|This modest home is headed to a new lot and restoration|
|The Green Mansion was moved at a cost of 43,000 and 25,000 grant provides for new foundation, Restored the house should be worth a couple of million. Its restoration will provide jobs and increase the tax base.|
|Some questioned the logic of moving "unremarkable' workers homes as part of the Indianapolis canal project. Today these modest homes, close to town, fetch upwards of 300K|
So its been proved over and over again that moving and restoring historic homes, even modest ones, makes sound economic sense. So the question becomes why is MSD and the city wanting to fire up the bulldozers and level a few blocks of Queen City and the entire Northside of Westwood Blvd when there are available vacant lots closeby. Often across the street that are available to move. If we use the logic of MSD that daylighting Lick Run will not only solve the sewer overflow issue but create a public facility that will raise property values then logic dictates that the very homes they want to put in a landfill will be very valuable prime property if they simply move them across the street.
