"We have put that demolition on hold to try to get time for the owners to work out a solution for the rehabilitation of this building, which is really a unique historic asset for Evansville," Hooper tells 14 News.
"It's an iconic historic building here that has great value to the historical landscape that we worked so hard to maintain here in this neighborhood," says Matt Rowe, the chairman of the Historic Preservation Committee.
There no word yet on any specific plans. Hooper says a public-private partnership is a possible solution.
