My understanding from all the reports today is the other matching grant,for $325,000.00 is cancelled as a result of these funds.
You might want to ck that.

I remember when it was City National Bank, and my grandfather, Ralph H. Steele was a teller, right next to Vern Steele. I used to walk down from my grandparent's home to see grandpa, stop at Argersingers and then Naifs on the way back home.
It would be such a shame for this particular building to be converted for this use. It is most inappropriate in light of all the good works that are going on downtown to revitalize it. I would hope that SMH would reconsider the location to a less promminant location, like on one of the side streets that also have available buildings.

These are all very good comments that the new council just taking office will have to account for. Fortunately we all have some backbone and we will no how to say "NO", which was done very seldom in the past. The buck stops with the council and this council is making it, its duty to clean up this mess and put controls in place to resolve this matter once and for all.

The old church buildings are magnificent ! Construction today does not meet those standards. I am thankful that someone has bought it with a genuine purpose in mind. I hope it works out for the best........those stained glass windows are no doubt irreplaceable along with many other things in the church. You cannot put a price on beauty :)

I hope they save a lot of the old architectual artifacts like the front doors and other items that could be reused. Any way, to salvage the facade and build a new inside? Might save some money in cost?
Just a thought......my mom went there and there are many memories for many residents in that school.......Please save what you can or at least reuse it......maybe you can sell bricks for souvenirs.

I am so glad they will be trying to save the facades. They are just so beautiful, I cannot imagine having to tear them down. Best of luck :)

As I understand it, Mr. Kirk Douglas did not have very flattering things to say about Amsterdam in his book. Many local residents therefore have taken a dislike to him. Just saying :)

Great idea Jackie.....good luck with the project. I also like the idea of bringing in someone from another area that does not know us and will be able to look at things with a clean slate :)

We had the same issue in Amsterdam and the police department was against if for the same reasons. The signs were not put up. I agree the problem is the younger drivers who squeal tires and speed and have no respect, or little, for others. The best solution is more patrols.
