While some temporary structural stabilization work has been completed, the effort is still over $100,000 away from reaching the money needed to rebuild the masonry wall.
We are a generous city with much wealth and love for our history. Can we not rebuild that wall? It seems like a reasonable goal with no ambiguity — every dollar collected will literally go to the needed bricks, mortar and labor.
The result will be that a neighborhood in the midst of renewal will retain one of its most significant buildings as an anchor for continued development.
Tax-deductible contributions now can be made here.
(PS: For candidates seeking to do good with leftover campaign funds, this is a great cause.)
