Work Continues at Site of Demolition of Historic Home on Hampton Road

41hamptondemolitionAfter half of a historic home on Hampton Road in Fox Meadow was torn down a few weeks ago, both the Mayor and the Village Manager vowed to undertake an investigation to find out how and why this happened, and to recommend steps to prevent future demolitions of historic properties.

However despite their avowals, it appears that work is still going on at 41 Hampton Road. We passed the site several times in the past few weeks and tractors and back hoes are being used to dig the foundation of the proposed 9,500 square foot house.

As far as we can tell, there has been no stop work order issued and the developer has applied to the Committee for Historic Preservation to demolish the remaining portion of the house which appears to have been severely damaged during the demolition process. The application is on the CHP agenda for their meeting on November 30, 2021.

So despite assurances from the Mayor and Village Manager, as far as we can tell, there have been no consequences for the developer for making a travesty of the Village’s preservation laws.
