Building Demolitions

A 9-month demolition delay ordinance was passed at the Longmeadow Town Meeting in April 2006. Owners that apply for demolition permits for historical structures dating prior to 1901 will be subject to this delay. A demolition delay bylaw cannot prevent demolitions indefinitely, yet delaying the demolition of a significant resource can often have a positive outcome. The delay period provides a window of opportunity to consider other alternatives to demolition.
