Protest Being Mounted Today at 5
Against Razing of Breuer Building

From the What's Up in Northeast Ohio listserv:

"A coalition of good government and fiscal responsibility advocates, environmentalists and historical preservationists will assemble at 5:00 PM on Thursday, May 3, 2007 outside the Ameritrust Tower, located at East 9th Street between Euclid and Prospect Avenues, in Cleveland, to protest the Cuyahoga County Commissioners' plan to raze the building...The coalition is picketing in order to call attention to the fact that Commissioners Tim Hagan and Jimmy Dimora ignored input from their fellow commissioner Peter Lawson Jones and architectural experts who objected to the proposed project from the standpointof its cost and the loss to Cleveland's skyline of one of its historically significant buildings. The coalition is opposed to the demolition of the tower, whether the site is used to create a new county administration center or not."

A month ago, I posted this hopeful tidbit about the controversy.
